Clayton was an avid sports fan, watching every sport on television. He was a dedicated University of Minnesota gopher fan while living in St. Paul and a Bison fan upon his return to Fargo. He took great pride in keeping his yard in great shape and harvesting bumper crops of tomatoes. Clayton was very proud of his Norwegian heritage and he and Marybelle were long-time members of the Sons of Norway lodges in Minneapolis and Fargo.

    I am a long time friend to your mother and dad. I am Marlene Purkey (Tarr). I was a neighbor in my childhood years in Walcott. Marybelle was my best friend. Moving to Oregon when I was in the 6th grade, I have many happy memories of both your mother and dad. We tried go get together often , and renew our friendship for the Larson family and Walcott life was so much a part of our life. Yes, I too have tasted of your dads great tomatoes and enjoyed your moms cooking many times in St. Paul and Fargo. I send my sympathy and understanding to Kathy and Laurie, and to the family. God does take care and helps us during these times. God bless, Marlene
