He graduated from Honokaa High School, but considered himself a Red Raider. After graduation, he attended Ricks College in Rexburg, Idaho where he was a decorated member of the football team. After two years, he decided to put his football career on hold and serve a mission. Clayton served in the Dallas/Fort Worth Texas mission.

For many years they enjoyed watching them compete in various sports, and Clayton even adjusted his work schedule to be able to attend. Clayton served faithfully in various callings for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, including seven different bishoprics and many years in the Boy Scouts. In his later years, Clayton volunteered for the Civil Air Patrol and served as a Logistics and Flight Release Officer. He loved anything related to flying.
