Springfield, Mo., farrier Connor Daniel Clayman, 22, passed away unexpectedly Saturday, June 13, 2015, in Benton County, Ark.

He was born to Bridget and Jay Clayman on March 29, 1993, in St. Louis, Mo.

In 2011, Clayman graduated from Ozark Technical College and, in 2013, he trained as a farrier at Oklahoma State Horseshoeing School in Ardmore, Okla. He married his best friend and high school sweetheart Tearnie on June 13, 2014.

Clayman was an accomplished farrier and was fiercely passionate about the outdoors. He enjoyed spending time fishing, camping, boating and trail riding. He was the type of guy who everyone wanted to know and there wasn’t a stranger who didn’t love him.
