ANDERSON -- God’s master plan was fulfilled in the life of Clayton Williams on June 20, 2014, at St. Vincent Hospital, Indianapolis. He transitioned home to be with the Lord after a sudden illness.

Clayton’s prize possession was loving and educating his children, grandchildren and many others. He also took great pleasure from vacationing with his grandchildren. Clayton was a devoted runner and health fanatic. He also loved driving the school bus No. 418 for Highland Jr. High and Erskine Elementary and learning different skills.
