Clayton Conrad Claughton was my Dad & best friend, Growing up i remember when he came home from working all day he would take us boys hunting and fishing.  We lived in Minam Oregon then and Dad & Lloyd Berry took me on a coon hunt and i tired out not far from the Rig , so Dad laid his coat down on the ground for me and told me to stay there. As i lay there i could hear the Hounds Bellowing and getting farther away. I pulled Dads coat up around me and fell asleep, when i woke up i was in my bed. I still to this day remember the smell of Dads coat. I miss him so much. We called each other and talked 3 or 4 times a week. My Dad was the Best man ever, he loved his family and his boys. I Love you Dad & will miss you & Mom forever   Love Steven Lee
