One Condolence to Clayton Lee Stout

  1. Preston Fahnestock says:

    I’m a retired engineer (born in Strasburg) with 45 years of railroading, I worked a lot with Clayton, and he was a great person to work with. He was easy going, never put anyone down, got along with everyone and was well thought of by all his fellow workers. He will be greatly missed.

    Our daughter, Tina (Simon) Kern says she remembers Teresa at Strasburg High, and sends her condolences as well.
