Clair was a true people person and would strike up a conversation with anybody and become instant friends. He had a talent for remembering people and their names. He couldn’t say no and always wanted to help everyone when he could. He enjoyed a good party but never needed to be the center of attention. He was intelligent, quick-witted, and humorous. He always had a joke up his sleeve. Clair had a perfect Donald Duck imitation

that would bring a smile to anyone, especially his grandkids. He loved his family’s Utah history and had a soft spot for the mountains in Spring City. He was a dedicated and hard worker for the family business, Hyland Heating, and truly enjoyed those he worked with.

He wished to be cremated and his remains buried with his parents. Graveside services to be announced. Clair will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.

A celebration of life will be held on Saturday, May 15, 2021 at 3:00 PM at 4163 South Falcon Street West Valley City, UT 84120.

I always called Clair my best friend growing up. We played basket ball together in Jr. High and then in High School. I remember we talked about opening an auto mechanics shop together as we both enjoyed working on cars. I remember working on cars in his dads garage at their house on 2700 south and his brown mustang which was a beautiful car. I hadn't talked to Clair in years because I had moved from Salt lake to Montana just after we graduated from High School. I know that he will be dearly missed and I wish that I had remained in closer contact. To his family, I am so sorry for your loss, as Clair was one of the good ones in this world.
