June 5, 1925 – April 27, 2017

Clayton was born in Miami and grew up on the family farm located 7 miles north of Darlingford, MB.  He attended Opawaka school but never completed his schooling because he was needed on the farm. He stayed there working along side with his Dad until 1956 when he married Gertrude Hohertz and they moved to Fox Lake, Illinois.  There he worked in the construction industry building interstate overpasses and houses.  He worked at Port Alberni, B.C. where he lived with his sister, Olga, and her family in the pulp saw mills before he was married.

In 1959 they moved back to Darlingford to take over the Dodge farm.  In January, 1960, their first daughter, Judy, was born followed by Connie in April, 1962.   In the late 1960’s Clayton and Gert invested in purebred Charolais cattle which kept them busy for the next 30 years.

Gert passed away in 2000.   In 2004 he moved to Manitou then to Miami in 2006 where he lived until July 2016 when he moved into the Pembina-Manitou Health Center. 

Clayton loved his cattle and enjoyed his yearly deer hunting trip.  He was very active with the Miami Fun and Fiddle Festival, Miami Agricultural Society and the Canadian Charolais Association.

Clayton leaves his cherished siblings:  Elona Fitzherbert (John) of High River, AB, Shirley Dodge of Belleville, ON, Ralph Dodge (Edna) of Lundar, MB, and Velma Orchard of Miami.; his two daughters, Judy Snitynsky (Henry) of Russell, MB, Connie Henuset (Greg) of Oak Bluff, MB; his granddaughter, Pamela Rathgeber (Blair) of Langenburg, SK,  grandson Taylor Dracass of Moose Jaw, SK, grandson Ryan Henuset of Oak Bluff, MB, granddaughter Karla Henuset of Oak Bluff, MB; great-grandsons Dillon and Jaxson Rathgeber, and great-grandaughter Luna Dracass.

Thank you to the friends and family for their visits and to the entire staff at the Pembina-Manitou Health Centre.
