After retiring from the U.S. Postal Service in 1989, he moved to Kings Beach where he enjoyed skiing, snowmobiling and traveling.

Clayton was treasurer of the North Lake Tahoe Snow Travelers Club for many years. He was a fantastic friend and snowmobiler.

He was a loving husband and devoted father, grandfather and great-grandfather.

He is survived by his wife of 56 years, Renee; his daughter, Pam Muhly; and son-in-law, Jerry of Rohnert Park, Calif.; son, Michael Whitmarsh; and daughter-in-law, Lynn of Port Orchard, Wash., son, Philip Whitmarsh of Aloha, Ore.; three grandchildren, five great-grandchildren, sisters Margie Robinson and Marilyn Springer, nieces and nephews.
