Mr. Clanton worked as a speech therapist with the School System, testing student's hearing. Here are two pictures during his career with the students of St. Tammany Parish.

Pat Clanton said her husband was treating his retirement like going to work every day, designing and building his wood creations to bring joy into other people's hearts. "He always priced them so people could afford to buy them if they wanted them," she said.
