Russell Vernon Clay, born on July 13,1951, in Logan County Oklahoma, passed away in Crescent, Oklahoma with his loving and caring daughter at his side. He was a devoted father and friend to his wife, children, and grandchildren. Russell Clay spent many years working in the oilfield as a derrick hand as well as a driller.  He went on for many years as a truck driver and employee of both Oklahoma County District #3 and Logan County District #1, hauling rock and dirt to help fix roads and other places they sent him to work. Before he retired, Russell was a transport driver for RDT Trucking and Bostic Transportation. There he hauled salt water and spent many hours working away from home and the family he loved so much.

Russell married Patricia Spooner on March 27,1972.  They had four children they raised in Crescent.
