Clay was a loving soulmate to Patrick Shumway for a wonderful 20 years, father to Meghan, grandfather to Dylan, Tyler, and Katie, son to Judy and Clayton Sr., mischievous brother to four loving sisters and three step-sisters and an exceptional friend to so many of us. Clay was willing to help anyone at any time! He worked in the lunchroom at his grandson Dylan's school (Little Harbour Elementary School in Portsmouth, NH), and had a special place in his heart for every one of those children. He also volunteered at LHS with Patrick. He will be missed by so many.
For the last 6 years, Clay and Patrick have been raising Dylan. These amazing men are considered to be role models by many of us. While Patrick and Dylan are learning how to live their lives without Clay, we, friends of the family, are asking for donations to off set the funeral and memorial costs, and cover some of the most immediate needs of the family.
There is no donation too small and every little bit helps. Your generosity is very much appreciated and we hope that you will share this message with your friends and family who may wish to donate as well. If donations are not possible, we are happy for your gracious thoughts and prayers.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
You can make your donations, post your thoughts and prayers using this website. If you want to send a check, please make it out to Patrick Shumway, and mail it to Patrick Shumway in care of Michele Cook, 7 Stevenson Rd, Kittery Maine 03904.
This fundraiser has been organized by friends and not the family themselves. Media can request contact information for the family's official representative Svetlana Peshkova at [email protected].
