Funeral Expenses for Clayton Ford Anderson

The sudden passing of Clayton F. Anderson has left his parents with many funeral related expenses. This Go Fund Me effort is to help with those expenses during their time of need.


Just over 22 years ago, Clayton entered this world bringing all the excitement and love that first-time parents feel.  Tyler and Jenny Anderson were thrilled.  He was his father’s little buddy. As a child he was kind and thoughtful and he continued his caring demeanor throughout his life. He was very active and with his younger brothers and they always kept their parents on-guard.  He grew up surrounded by love. 

Clayton loved spending time with family, fishing, painting, and writing. He was willing to help anyone in need. He especially loved helping his mom, Jenny Ford (Anderson), with her workouts, either behind the camera on sets or even appearing in some of her workouts. 


Over the last few years, Clayton struggled with many mental health challenges.  His parents worked tirelessly on his behalf with the help of mental health care professionals. Recently, among his other challenges, he was diagnosed with schizophrenia. These constant battles contributed to the tragic night when he took his own life.  

We know that Clayton is now at peace and understands how much he is loved and valued.  It was an honor to know him and be a part of his life.  He will be greatly missed.


All funds collected will be used to help Clayton’s family pay for the funeral, burial plot, bereavement counseling, and related expenses.  Spencer W. Anderson and Alesha Anderson McCown (both are accountants) will assist the family in managing the donations.
