Dear Howell Family: You have my most sincere condolences for your loss.
I worked beside Clayton for many years at BFG. He got me rehired at Bf after the brutal 1976 strike there. He was our Union DC and I found him to be a fair,
compassionate, and very, very hard working man. I always admired his loyalty to his fellow man. I shall sadly miss him. Sincerely, Richard Parrish, Antwerp,Ohio
