Clayton Samuel Ure
1959 – 2016

Clayton Samuel Ure passed away Saturday, January 9, 2016.  “Clay” was born with Down's Syndrome on August 17, 1959 in Salt Lake City, Utah.  Because of the tender loving care given to him by his parents, Harold “Pack” Ure and Elizabeth “Betty Lou” Ure, he lived to the “ripe old age” of 56.

Clay was always happy and welcomed everyone with a hug.  Clay and his parents served as missionaries on Temple Square for 18 months.  He wore his missionary badge for almost the rest of his life.  As an Elder in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Clay did temple work.  He was the best greeter ever in his ward in Downey, Idaho and took every opportunity to bear his testimony and inspire many people, even though they were unable to understand everything he said.

For many years Clay wore a cowboy hat and a sheriff’s badge.  His passion was collecting pens and pencils everywhere he went, and writing on every blank (or not so blank) paper he came across.

Clay was welcomed into his perfected body by his mother, two sisters, a brother, nephew and loving grandmothers.  He is survived by his 97 year old father who cared for him alone for over a year-and-a-half.  He is also survived by brothers, Harold David (Cynthia) Ure, and Richard (MaryAnn) Ure, as well as many nieces and nephews and their families.

Thank you to the Reliance Home Health and Hospice Care people who so lovingly assisted Clay in his final days.
