David Clay Obituary, Death – David Clay was born on July 14, 1970, and he said goodbye to his family and friends when he traveled to the afterlife to be with his grandparents, grandparents, two uncles, and a cousin. Brent will be missed by his wife of 22 years, Diana Clay, as well as his daughter Riley Clay, who both call the home they had together their legacy. In addition, he is survived by his mother Velma Clay of Claremore, his brother Joseph Clay and nephew Jesse Clay, both of whom also reside in Claremore; his mother-in-law and father-in-law, Elmer and Patsy Duty, of Sand Springs; his brother-in-law and friend Rick Duty and his wife Patti; his nephews Trevor and Toby, both of Sand Springs; and his nephew Justin Duty and wife Sarah, who reside in Claremore.
All of these individuals Brent is survived by a large number of aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, coworkers, and friends, including Randy Benton, Nathan Dickson, Paul Hixson, Jim Deck, Brek Henry, Spencer Grace, Jeff Brown, Paul Welch, and Jesse Monroe. He also leaves behind a large number of nieces and nephews. In his lifetime, Brent achieved a great deal of success. After completing his Bachelor of Science degree at the age of 35, he went on to become a game warden for the State of Oklahoma Wildlife Department. Prior to this, he had been ordained as a priest. Hunting and fishing were two of Brent’s favorite hobbies, and he took great pleasure in passing his enthusiasm on to his daughter.
It was not unusual for Brent, who was an exceptionally skilled singer and songwriter, to produce one new song every single day. Brent began riding bulls when he was twelve years old, continued riding throughout his life, and won the world championship when he was 46 years old. Brent has stated on numerous occasions that his daughter Riley is the single most important thing in his life. He referred to her as “His Little Lady Bug” all the time. His affection for her was boundless, and he encouraged her to pursue whatever goals she set for herself, beaming with pride at her accomplishments.
If you were Brent’s friend, there was no doubt in your mind that you already knew this. You could have anything you wanted from him, and he would cheerfully give it to you without expecting anything in return. He had a lot of fun making music with his brother Joseph, and when his nephew Jesse showed an interest in music, Brent was overjoyed to involve him in their musical activities. His mother claimed that there was never a period of time when there was no music playing in the house where they lived. Brent was influenced by a wide variety of musicians, but the one who had the greatest impact on him was Elvis Presley. It is safe to assume that Brent is capable of singing every song that Elvis ever recorded.
Brent is performing a song for his great-grandparents, Marvin and Imogene McDaniel, as well as his uncles Leroy and Jerry McDaniel, his cousin Adam McDaniel, and his aunt Lou. Those who knew and loved him will never forget him, and he will be remembered fondly till the end of time. He will always be a bright and shining light. Our hearts have been broken, and we crave the opportunity to see him just one more time. He entered eternal life with a tune in his soul, a dance in his step, and he left behind a place in our hearts for the love we had for him. Keep singing Brent, we will be listening!
