Obituary of Clayton Arthur Hall
HALL, Clayton Arthur "CA"
It is with great sadness that the family of Clayton "CA" Hall announce his passing on Thursday June 17, 2021, at the age of 66 years. A lifelong resident of Fort Erie, Ontario, Clayton was truly a wonderful man who deeply loved his family, friends, co-workers and community.
A dedicated family man, Clayton will be dearly missed by his Wife Donna, sons Kevin (Corey) and Justin (Andrea), his brother Robert (Adriana) , sister-in-laws Muriel, Maureen, Christine (Kevin), brother-law Roy and parents in-law Leona and Donald. His grandchildren were his pride and joy. Hunter, Emma, Addilyn, and Cooper will forever remember the wonderful times with their "Papa". Clayton is predeceased by his sister Shirley, brothers Kenneth and Donald, and parents Robert Graham "Slim" and Audrey Mae "Susie".
As founder, manager and coach, Clayton was also the #1 fan of the Fort Erie Cannons. Over the years, he helped to develop a fine group of young men who would go on to win two all Ontario Championships and three NDBA championships. Alongside his son Justin, one of his proudest moments in life came in 2019 when the Cannons were inducted into the Fort Erie sports Hall of Fame. This love, passion and contribution to the baseball community helped revitalize interest in men's hardball here in town.
Clayton served proudly as a Superintendent at the Peace Bridge, with the Canada Border Services Agency, retiring in 2012. The relationships he created, and the impact he had on others continued into his retirement. He never missed an opportunity to catch up with fellow co-workers.
One of his passions in life was the great outdoors. Numerous fishing, hunting and trips up north were spent with family and friends. Whether walleye fishing or deer hunting, CA was right at home on the water and in the field. This love of the outdoors continued with his dedication to the Conservation Club in Stevensville.
Whether on or off the field, Clayton was a mentor and coach at heart. He touched the lives of many around him. He always dropped what he was doing if it meant an opportunity to help someone in need. He will be forever missed and remembered.
A small private Memorial Service is to take place Friday June 25, 2021 at Greenwood Cemetery with immediate family. Due to the current restrictions, we will be celebrating his life well-lived at a time to be announced.
Memorial contributions may be made to Last Chance Horse and Pony Rescue, Fort Erie Conservation Club or a charity of your choice.
