After spending his childhood on the family farm, Clay joined the Navy during World War II. At the end of the war, after traveling halfway around the world, he returned home to marry the love of his life, Jacqueline Peck Bird, his wife for over sixty three years. They worked, raised a family, built a home and founded Bird Chain Saw Co., a business still owned and operated today by family. Clay spent nearly his entire life less than a ten minute walk from the very house he was born in. His goals in life were simple, Love God, Love Your Family and Love Your Country. What if everyone could live so simply?
God Blessed Clay with a long healthy life surrounded by a family that loved him beyond measure and will miss him each and every day.
