Clayton "Clay" O'Brien, weary of reading the obituaries noting someone's courageous battle with death Clay would want it to be known that he died as a result of being stubborn, refusing to follow doctors’ orders and raising hell for almost 6 1/2 decades.

He enjoyed booze, guns, cars, cigars and younger woman as evidenced by his wife who is a decade young than him.

Clay was born November 29, 1955 and passed us in the fast lane to a better place on May 25, 2019.
He is survived by his loving wife, Ronda A. O'Brien, 3 grandchildren, Ailene Sprauge, Justin Sprauge ages 12 and Alex Sprauge age 17, step-children, Colton Smith age 21, Ann Sprauge and his 1/2 brother Chris Wallace.

Clay did many things in his life but most notably was his volunteering for military service and enlisting and serving during the Vietnam Era.

Please leave a memory for the family or sign their online guestbook at
Scharbach's Columbia Funeral Chapel, Quincy, is assisting the family with arrangements.

I totally respect the honesty in the obit. I arrived here by searching for my cousin, Clayton O'Brien. The age is correct; it appears I searched too late. Do you know if Clayton's father was Don O'Brien, he had an uncle Frank, grandma Beaulah?

Clay was a big brother like no other. He baby sat me when he should have been out with his friends, begrudgingly I am sure, but still none the less he was there. Later in life he taught me how to drive a truck and shoot a shot gun, our father wasn't around, but Clay was. He was there to see me get married, and see me off to basic training as I followed in his footsteps. He was there for our Mother in her darkest hours holding her hand until she passed. Even in passing he has given the gift of sight helping restore the vision to two people. These are only a few things he has done for others, he has done much more. He was "Santa" for a little Down Syndrome boy who new no better at Fred Meyers one year, and he was proud to do it, that is just who he is. Now he is in a much better place. A place that is deserving of souls like his. I am sure that he and the rest of our family that made it there before him are watching over us, Rest in peace big brother you deserve it!
