I can’t express how sorry I for this great loss. My prayers to the family. Marissa may god get you through this. Love the strazza family
Although we did not have the opportunity to get to know Clay and his young wife, we were moved by the courage, commitment, and tremendous love they exhibited during this most difficult of times. The overwhelming support of their parents, siblings and extended family and friends was crucial. Their strength of character, faith, and sheer grit is inspirational and a credit to their families.
The entire Fairfield Lacrosse Community is mourning the loss of a fellow Stags Laxer. On behalf of the Fairfield Lacrosse Founders, our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Wells family. Roger Yergeau '73 Founder
I have only known Clay and his family for a short time. Their love, determination and support was indescribable. Our team connected with this beautiful family immediately. Clay warmed our hearts and pulled us in. We are blessed to have crossed paths with Clay and his family. Rest In Peace our sweet friend. Steph and CHOP team -
We were so sad to hear of Clay’s passing. We had the pleasure to get to know him during his years at LaSalle. His determination on the field and his quick smile and kind word off the field will always be in our memory. Our prayers are with you all during this difficult time.

I am deeply saddened by the loss of Clay. We worked together at the Coppell TX site. May God comfort the entire Wells family. I am praying for you all.
Clay was such a ray of sunshine for us at Johnson & Johnson! I had the pleasure of being Clay's supervisor when he worked at the Mentor distribution center in Texas and I always enjoyed his can-do attitude. He was so humble and kind and is an example to all. Prayers from us in Texas.
I had the recent pleasure of having Clay as part of my organization at J&J. Clay had great energy and was a truly kind person. He will be wholly missed by our team.
I am so saddened by this loss and will keep Clay and his family in my prayers.
Sorry for your loss. Prayers are with you through this difficult time.
I'm saddened by your loss. Clay was a great guy, one of the friendliest people I ever met or worked with. I only had the pleasure of working with Clay a few times but it was clear he was a hard worker, and always gave 100%. My thoughts and prayers are with the family during this difficult time.
For the Wells Family-
We are saddened by the loss of Clay.
While never having met him, we knew he had the determination and grit as his Mom and Dad. It took that determination to fight cancer as he did.
We have Clay and the family in our prayers and we grieve with Phyllis and Clayton.
Rest In Peace ,

Dear Marissa and Wells family:
I worked with Clay for a year in Irving, TX. I never saw Clay have a bad day, and there were bad days. He always had a smile, exuded confidence, and was a true born leader. The type of leader that bridged people together which our country and world needs. He taught this man, 13 years older than him much and made my time away from wife and family easier. I remember telling him “We will all report to you one day and I look forward to that day, Wells”. I wish I had met him earlier in life. I shall never forget his contagious smile and the positive impact he made on me.
My heart aches .my name is Jon Bryan I had the pleasure to have clay as my supervisor at the mentor plant in Texas. He is two years older than my son.one never fill the void of loss from a loved one this is a poem I used to comfort when I loss my father, father-in-law,nephew,cousin. In one years time
What is dying
I am standing on the seashore, a ship sails in the morning breeze and starts for the ocean.
She is an object of beauty and I stand watching her till at last she fades on the horizon and someone at my side says: "She is gone."
Gone from my sight that is all.
She is just as large in the masts, hull and spars as she was when I saw her, and just as able to bear her load of living freight to its destination.
The diminished size and total loss of sight is in me, not in her, and just at the moment when someone at my side says,
"She is gone"
there are others who are watching her coming, and other voices take up a glad shout:
"There she comes!"
and that is dying.
Our sincere condolences and prayers go out to Clay's entire family. We were lucky to meet Clay and his family during our son Eric's time at LaSalle. You are a special family and heaven is greater now with Clay there to watch over all of you.
I had the pleasure of working with Clay in Ethicon, GA. He was a great leader and such a happy guy, always a smile on his face. I am so sorry to hear of his passing and I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers.
We are so deeply sorry. May beautiful Clay rest in eternal peace in the arms of God and angels surrounding him as he shines his eternal light upon us all. We are praying for you all through this most difficult time. Sending our deepest, sincere sympathies and comfort and strength. You're truly all soo beautiful; Heartfelt prayers for you all; Our loving Marissa and your families, The Wells Family and The Spedale Family. With love always, The Moran Family
Our hearts break for you all! You are in our thoughts and prayers at this most difficult time. May he Rest In Peace.
Clay was our Manufacturing Manager at Johnson and Johnson and exciled far above his years of age! I was amazed at all he accomplished at his time here...He was a people person with a great personality and also very professional!
Prayers are with all his family and friends...
We love you Clay!!
I am so thankful that I had the chance to know Clay's beautiful spirit. My condolences and I all who knew him and loved him, find some peace in knowing that he touched so many people and truly made this world a better place.
Our deepest condolences. We are certain that this is a very difficult time for you and your family and can only imagine the pain you are feeling. With sympathy, Gary and Liz

Our very deepest condolences to all of you and your extended family.

What an impact he made on everyone he met. Surely God embraced him and whispered , “Well done, good and faithful servant”
So much love,
Mimi and Tom
Clay was one of my best childhood friends that lived just behind my home. Sleepovers, video games, sports, and random shenanigans with him and our friend group are some of my fondest memories from childhood. He was a great friend and I love and appreciate his family for being such a positive part of my life. The last time I saw Clay was on his 30th birthday in Atlanta, where I think we took the only picture we have of us together. I am so glad, now, that we were able to make that happen. You will be deeply missed, my friend.
We are deeply saddened at the too-early passing of Clay. He possessed a kind and generous heart and a ready smile from his youngest days. He was a treasured friend to our sons and a joy to have in our home. He was inclusive of everyone in having fun, including little tag-a-long sisters on a snowy day. He will always be remembered fondly by our family. We know he will be deeply missed by his loving family. Our hearts and prayers go out to each of you.
Our deepest sympathies to your entire family. I will always remember watching the Fairfield Lacrosse games and the Philly pretzels. He was a great player.
May he Rest In Peace.

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Wells, Gordie, and Stevie,
I know you haven't seen me in many years... I was reading my brother-in-law's obituary and Clay's was next to his. I couldn't leave this page without reaching out to you. Please know that you are all remembered in my prayer, especially today.
I have so many wonderful family memories growing up with my fun-loving cousin, Clay. He fought such a brave battle, and now he is peacefully surrounded by other family angels. I know that his bright and courageous spirit will eternally provide strength and inspiration to of all those who are mourning his passing. I am sending my deepest condolences to Marissa, Pud, Clayton, Stevie, and Gordie - I love you all very much.
We haven’t been in touch for a long time but our boys were friends at Mount Carmel. What I remember most about Clay was his kindness, always, even to my much-younger daughter who had such a crush on him. My heart is heavy with sorrow for all of you. What a wonderful family you are and what a heartbreaking loss for you. It does look like Clay’s life, though way too short, was filled with love and joy. You will all be in my prayers. Melanie DiLullo
Marissa and Family - Our deepest condolences on your loss of Clay. We are sorry that we did not learn about his death until today. From his obituary, we can see that we would have liked to know him better than we did. If we can do anything for you, do not hesitate to ask. From your next door neighbors at 21 Addison.
Our hearts were completely broken when we learned recently that Clay had been ill and passed away. Our deepest love to Clayton, Phyllis, Marissa, Gordie and Stevie during this difficult time. Words can not begin to express our sadness. We will always have wonderful memories of Clay and the time our families spent together over the years in Doylestown. All our love, Fran, Lisa and Andrew
Lauren and I are so sorry to hear about your son Clayton. Please accept our deepest sympathy during this very difficult time. I hope you can find strength in your memories of your son and the positive impact he brought to your lives. Mike and Lauren Roper
Dear Phyllis and Family,
I am heartbroken to hear of your beloved son Clay's passing. There are no words to ease this pain and I pray for you, your family and his beautiful wife for continued strength during this unimaginable time. May all the cherished memories bring you comfort and peace.
God Bless you all,
I am not surprised by the love, friendship, caring and devotion that comes through these many written condolences and the characterization everyone speaks about when talking about Clay. He is a shining example and legacy of the upbringing his parents Clayton and Phyllis instilled in him. I remember when Clay was born and received a call from Phyllis stating she couldn't be so far away from him when she worked and agreed to come work with me in her "backyard". I feel as though Phyllis' and Clayton's three children grew up before my eyes. They are such devoted parents. Although I never met Marissa, I pray for her comfort also.
You have an advocate in the most important of places although it will take time to heal. I pray for your family everyday that the beautiful memories will outweigh the sorrow!
Phyllis and Family
Where to begin! In my 32 yrs at OLMC SCHOOL, many families have passed thru but not all make a lasting impression. Seeing the pictures of the kids when they were students are what I remember the best. But parents also make impressions as did you and your family. My dearest thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I always looked forward to seeing you, it was always a great visit. Thankyou for allowing me to meet you all. GOD SPEED CLAYTON! Love, Linda Donovan
Dear Wells Family,
It is with great sorrow and heartache that we received the news of Clay's passing. We remember Clay as a kind, compassionate young man, who touched the lives and hearts of many. May God hold you close and comfort you and your family during these difficult times and may the reflection of him in the eyes and hearts of those who loved him, remind you that he is close at hand.
We just learned today of Clay's passing and our hearts are heavy thinking about this sad news. Clay was an amazing young man and I am so glad I had the opportunity to know Clay as his former lacrosse coach. Clay was a relentless competitor with a kind heart and an amazing smile. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Well's family. God Bless!
I am shocked and saddened to hear of Clay’s passing. There are few people and families that come along in life that you’ll remember forever. Clay, and the entire Wells family, are those type of people. I’ll always remember preparing for the next lacrosse season working out at The Edge with Clay, Gordie and Mr. Wells. My deepest condolences. Rest In Peace, Clay.
