Beutin, Clayton W. “Clay”

“The poorest guy in Greendale” was called home on Sunday, July 17, 2022 at the age of 90 years.  Beloved husband of Marlene (nee Leitgeb) for almost 66 years.  Loving father of Todd (Diane), Tad (Jane) and Terry (Laurie).  Proud papa of the late Andrew, Kyle, Kevin, Kurtis and Carly.  Brother-in-law of Marianne (the late Gerald) Rutzinski and Sharon (Jerry) Valerio.  Further survived and loved by many cousins, nieces, nephew, other relatives and many friends.

Visitation Monday, July 25, 2022 from 10:00 -11:45 am at ST. LUKE’S LUTHERAN CHURCH, 6705 Northway Greendale, WI 53129.  Memorial service at 12:00 pm.

Clay proudly served his country as a US Army medic during the Korean Conflict and was honored to have participated in the Honor Flight in 2015. He was a retired Milwaukee Fire Fighter, member of Greendale American Legion Post #416 and was a long-time member of St. Luke’s Lutheran Church.  If so desired, memorials to his church appreciated.

Clay liked to joke about seeing the light, now he truly does!

    My beloved Papa, I will miss you very much. My heart is hurting but I know you and Andy are together and are at peace with the Lord.
    I have been blessed to be part of Beutin family, I have always felt like a daughter not a daughter in law.
    You will forever be in my heart.

    A few weeks ago you asked me when we will see each other again. Now it will take a while until we meet again in heaven.
    Thank you for all the wonderful memories I got from being (a tiny) part of your family. I will cherish every single one.
    Words cannot express the grief I feel.

    I worked with Clay at the Mitchell International airport Fire Dept.. Clayton danced to the beat of a different drummer. He was always an individual in the purist form. He was kind and soft spoken, He had an inner strength
    and a joy for life. I will miss his smile and laughter, but I will especially miss his friendship.
    My sincere and deepest condolences to his family.

    God speed Clay
