Clay Henry Clifton(1960 - 2013)

Clay Henry Clifton, May 10, 1960 - October 30, 2013. There are those among us who hear a voice, most will never hear. They are brilliant and always searching for that moment that is "just right". Clay found that moment in a tree stand, at dawn with the fog in the hollow, dew on the grass and the din of the world silenced. For Clay, his job as a pharmacist at Halifax Hospital was a means to an end. Although dedicated to his profession, his real passion was freshly mown hay, a white tail deer crossing his path and the release of his bowstring. Preceded in death by his father, Howard J. Clifton, Clay leaves behind to cherish his memory, his beloved wife and best friend, Heidi; his devoted mother, Margaret Bailey Clifton; his loving twin sister. Candy (Rodney) Eddins; and numerous other relatives and friends. Clay's family is celebrating his life on Tuesday, November 12 at 4:00 pm at Stetson Baptist Church, 1025 West Minnesota Avenue, DeLand. You are invited to share your memories with the family at
