  3. Mrs Canning, Grant, Mark and family. I’m so sorry for your loss. I enjoyed spending time with Clayton and have many lifetime memories. A good friend I played hockey and football with. His laugh, lightheartedness and easy going nature made him fun to be around. Clayton helped me get my matriculation in Math. He was a good student and smart. I made sure I sat by him in class so when the material got tricky he could mentor me thru it. I miss the time we spent together and remember him fondly . He will be missed. Sincere Condolences.

    I’m very sorry for your loss. He was a good friend.
    I remember way back in the 80’s, Clayton wanted to make a movie. He had this 8mm camera, high tech, I know lol. We all got together and made this slasher, horror film. B rated at best. In those days the film was mailed away to be developed. We were on pins and needles waiting for the film to return so we could watch it. When the day finally came, we all got together, picked up a few beers and watched the movie.
    Like I said B rated at best……….but OMG did we laugh. It was so much fun.
    Thanks for the Memories Clayton. You will be missed
