Obituary: Garrett Kelly Clayburn

Garrett Kelly Clayburn "Tumor Man" 1979 ~ 2005 Garrett, 26, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, November 15, 2005 at his home. He was born July 9, 1979 in Salt Lake City, the son of Lynn and Sandy Clayburn, he was raised in Sandy, UT and graduated from Jordan High. He married his high school sweetheart Carrie Butterfield on August 11, 2001. She was the love of his life. Garrett had a strong spirit, and lived life to the fullest. He was employed by Sandy City, and loved his co-workers. He had a great love for the outdoors including; hunting, camping, jeeping in Moab, and anything challenging and adventurous. But the one thing he loved the most was being with his sweet baby Taya Lynn Clayburn "mini me". He also loved being with family and friends. Garrett was always the life of the party, everyone was drawn to his crazy personality and his infectious smile. We will miss his sarcasm, his off-the-wall anticks, and his big kid laugh! We couldn't have asked for a better Husband, Daddy, son, brother, uncle, or friend. We admire his great strength and courage as he faced struggles with brain cancer. Through his example we learned to be positive. Survived by his wife, daughter Taya, Parents Lynn and Sandy Clayburn, two sisters, Lyndie (Chris) Caussey, Chandra (Casey) Colton, grandmother Norine Clayburn, In-laws Robert, Christy Lynn Butterfield.
