Clay Hartman Kirkevold, a Duvall, WA, resident passed away on April 2, 2018, in Seattle, WA.

Clay Kirkevold was born December 29, 1952, to Willy Hartman Kirkevold and Vivian Peterson Kirkevold. He was born and raised in Juneau, AK.

Clay and his wife Vangie raised their three daughters, Brenda, Amanda, and Jessica, in Juneau. Clay was the owner of Kirkevold Trucking, and he also worked with Miller Construction for many years out of Juneau.

In September 1993, Clay and Vangie moved their family to Duvall, WA. He worked in the construction field as a heavy equipment operator for Universal Land for 23 years. He really loved what he did for a living and never really considered it work because this was his passion. Clay enjoyed working around the yard at his home in Duvall. He was also an avid fan of NASCAR, and took multiple tips to Las Vegas to watch the races.

Clay is survived by his wife, Vangie Kirkevold, of 44 years; Daughters Brenda (Rob), Amanda, and Jessica (Jeff); Grandsons Tanner, Clayton, Dalton, Landon, and Chayse; Mother Vivian; Sisters Greta and Heather; and numerous relatives in Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Illinois, Wisconsin, Virginia, and Norway.

Clay is preceded in death by his father Willy, sister Heidi, and son Jerrod.
