Clayton Robert Dyer

July 16, 2000 - October 13, 2021

Obituary

On Wednesday October 13, 2021, Clayton Robert Dyer, a loving son, brother, uncle and friend, was unjustly taken from this world at the age of 21.

Clayton was born July 16, 2000. He aspired to become a real estate agent, however, his time was cut short for him to fulfill that dream.  Clayton was a fun, charismatic and confident individual. He lived fast, always trying new things, he loved food and trying the latest restaurants. In the winter, you would find him snowboarding, in the summer he loved boating and sea-dooing. Aside from his busy life, he always made time for family and friends, his famous line anytime he came home was “ what’s for dinner”- but he always asked if anyone needed anything. Clayton was one of a kind, with a heart of gold, consistently willing – wanting to help others with his compassionate generosity. His sense of humour was out of this world comical, once he started getting you to laugh, it was like he couldn’t stop cascading words and you in-turn couldn’t stop laughing. Clayton’s presence in a room commanded positive attention, he was loud but magnetic. He was playful and outgoing, yet fiercely protective of his family and friends. Clayton always wanted to see everyone around him do good, whether that meant financially, physically or mentally- he always tried to have the backs of those he cared for. 

Clayton was predeceased by his father, Robert (November 16, 2016). Survived by his mother, Cynthia; sister, Desiree; niece, Kandence and several endearing friends that became family.

I wish all of Claytons family my deepest sympathy for your loss. I saw Clayton as a upbeat young man who was full of energy and ideas. Though he could be stubborn at times it was like armour he wore to protect the kindness and caring attitude I was able to witness a few times. Last Christmas a few of us had nothing and were really sad as never before on a Christmas had any of us experienced such hardship. Upon running into Clayton he sensed all was not well for us. He asked us to please stay where we were, he needed to run home and would be right back. When he returned he brought 3 plates overflowing with Christmas dinner on each one. He gave a plate to each one of us wishing us a Merry Christmas and said, Can only get better from here! He then left flashing that beautiful smile he had and he was right.

Clayton and I could have our challenges as he was a very self assured 21 year old who knew everything. Things got a lot better when I remembered at 21 I also knew all of lifes answers and older people were always so negative and serious. I too hated advice and I had to try everything that crossed my path. I remembered my twenties were magic and though a female I was invincible and very brave.

Things turned around and whenever we ran into each other and especially if it was just the two of us we either were laughing our heads off or he was so excited to talk about real estate as he seriously was contemplating becoming an agent.

I am truly sorry he was yours for only 21 years. No family deserves to walk the road you now are on but Clayton packed a lot of memories in those 21 years. Hold them close, speak of him often, and know he now watches over you and is always around so talk to him when you want. With that strong personality of his he would want each of you to make the most of your lives as a tribute to him.

I wish all who cared about him strength to get through these times and peace in knowing though he has disappeared from our sight he will never leave your heart or mind.
