If anyone ever should hope to meet a person that has an aura about them that radiates to all around… that of the late great Clayton Quinn.
Amongst one of the most hardest times in my life I was blessed to have met a new friend-Clayton.
Always around when I needed a listening ear..or gave me advice that really mattered to me. His charismatic lovable easygoing personality..with his humor and the astounding ability to fix bikes like I’ve never seen..also he had a heightened intelligence that drew me in to wanting to get to know him more personally. I always enjoyed his company. Sadly in the homelessness that we we’re living we had very little time to keep building our friendship..but that did not stop us from appreciating what time we did have…I wish he could have been here waaay longer.. He admiringly spoke about his kids and his baby. The smile that he gave was priceless. I was blessed to have went and met his grandma with him one sweet COLD ass day!lol but again he reached out a helping hug to keep my frozen ass warm while walking back to the bus stop. We ended up walking to a field anyway..he was dressed warm ..smart… I was frozen ..he offered a jacket of course. All in all he showed me that no matter what life’s bullshit has to throw at you..still smile..still show someone you care, even a small gesture matters. Rest easy bro..see u one sweet day
