Clayton Ward Foglesong, 88, of Quincy, died peacefully on January 30, 2019. He was born on October 3, 1930 in Missouri. Clayton was the 7th of 10 children. When he was 13 he moved to Washington to work on his sister’s dairy farm. He eventually went back to Missouri to marry his childhood sweetheart and neighbor, Elizabeth Ann Dodson whom he won over despite her initial impression of him as ornery. They were married on December 8, 1950. Clayton convinced Ann to venture west and they eventually settled in Quincy in 1961 where they raised 4 boys. Clayton was a successful farmer and businessman and in true farmer fashion, he continued to help his boys with the farm long after his retirement.

Clayton is preceded in death by his parents, his 9 siblings, his oldest son Jim and his grandson Jay.

He is survived by his loving wife of 68 years, 3 sons: John (Vicky), Bill, and Jack (Velma);
Daughter-in-law Arlene, 5 grandchildren: Craig, Lisa (Tim), Jill (Anthony), Lance (Laura), and Austin; great grandson Clayton; and “adopted” son Jacob Torrez.

In accordance with Clayton’s wishes, there will be no services.

I am very sad to hear of Clayton’s passing. I had the pleasure of meeting him and Ann through my dad, Paul Cabe. Clayton would take us to his fields to get onions and potatoes every year. My dad was a depression survivor so he would take a pick up truck of each and we would box them for days so he could share with all of his family. Clayton had a very similar personality in which neither of them had much of a filter from what they thought they should say and what came out of their mouths. It truly was entertaining to listen to some of their conversations as they were colorful to say the least.

Ann I am very sad that you lost your life long partner. Hugs to you. For the rest of his family and friends he left behind, I hope you begin to smile when you think of Clayton with all the memories he left us during his 88 years here.
