Clair Wakefield

(view this monument)

A natural inventor, Clair loved a challenge. One time he set out to build his own steam engine—he joked it was only a couple hundred years too late—but he did it. He delighted friends and family by demonstrating his creation: a six-inch tall working steam engine.

Clair delighted in solving problems. He had a seemingly endless patience for doing so which was the envy of those around him. Sometimes his solution wasn't the most elegant option, he once used a bolt and nut to fix a broken seat belt, but his solution always worked.

He is deeply missed.
