He was the son of Edward J. Bowe and Mary B. Bowe. Clayton grew up near Greenwood and attended Eaton Center School and Greenwood Public School.

Clayton was a proud member as a National Guard Veteran who was put into activation during the Berlin Wall Crisis and proudly served for his country with Pink Van Gordon as one of Pink’s “Farm Boys” in the State of Washington as a 32nd Infantry Division member.

He married Arlene A. Petke on January 4, 1964. They raised Alicia (Dennis) Djubenski, Theresa (Greg) Albers, and Cletus (Sharon) Bowe.

Clayton is survived by his siblings Becola ‘Cookie’ (Wayne) Doebele and their children; Maynard ‘Pee Wee’ (Jean), their children and Margret (Edward) Hill and their children.

He is the proud Grandfather of Aarica (John) Seagren and Tylor (Rachel Morrow) Djubenski; Samantha and Clay Bowe; ClancyJo and Gustav Albers, and great-grandparent of Zander and Mariah Seagren.

Clayton and Arlene farmed in Longwood for many years. Clayton worked for Wills Implement delivering LP gas to customers around the community and retired from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation after 17 years of committed service.

Clayton was preceded in death by his mother, father, and his wife Arlene.

Clayton’s Family would like to thank the Family of Clark County Rehabilitation and Living Center for their care for Clayton.
