Joseph Clayton Wale, a great-grandfather, grandfather, father, and loving husband of Margaret Wale passed away July 29, 2006 at his home surrounded by his family. At the age of 73, he fought a courageous battle with the fast moving Pompe's disease.
Clyaton was born August 18, 1932, the youngest of nine children of the late Joseph M and Elnora (Hollenbeck) Wale. Clayton graduated from St. Louis High School with the class of 1950, and married his high school sweetheart, Margaret Fenton, on June 15, 1952. Clayton spent most of his life in the St. Louis area.
He was an active member of the St. Louis Church of Christ, where he served as a Deacon and Elder and many years as a Sunday School teacher. We worked at Alma Products, General Motors Steering Gear in Saginaw and on his family farm.
In 1988, he retired from Steering Gear and spent the next 15 years at Higgins Lake, where he and Margaret enjoyed fishing, hunting and boating on the lake. This is where he enjoyed his family and grandchildren the most. He was an avid euchre player, golfer and woodworker; he enjoyed making beautiful furniture for his family.
