Harold Fooshee Clayton, 61, sculptor and beloved husband, brother, and friend, died Tuesday, May 26 at his home in Dallas. Harold, the son of Margaret Fooshee Clayton and John Bunyan Clayton, III, was born in Dallas, Texas on May 9, 1954. He attended Hyer Elementary, Highland Park High, the Berkshire School in Massachusetts, and the University of North Texas, where he received his BFA cum laude in 1977. He grew up in the Park Cities, first on Caruth St. and later, Westway Ave., in a house his grandfather, the architect Marion Fooshee, designed. Married for 24 years to Lara Louise Clayton, they lived on Richard Ave. Harold was a well-known artist and sculptor, whose works in marble, limestone, and granite may be seen in parks alongside Turtle Creek Blvd., Trinity Lake Park, Hitzelberger park adjacent to Snider Plaza, in St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church, where he was a life-long parishioner, and in numerous homes throughout the Dallas area and around the country.

Harold had a remarkable spirit: kind, gentle, yet full of generous enthusiasms, he was lit from within by his passion for friendship and by the love he lavished on his art. His energetic spirit and joy for life was infectious. He was a great soul. A celebration of his life will be held at St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church, Saturday, May 30, 2015 at 2:00 p.m., 8011 Douglas, Dallas, Texas 75225. A reception will follow at the church.
