Clayton B. Flack, loving husband and amazing father, entered Heaven on Wednesday, August 5, 2020 at the age of 80, to be in the presence of Jesus and to be reunited with his dearly departed family and friends. He was born in Poultney, Vermont on April 18, 1940 to the late Frank Edwin Flack and Bertha Shepard Flack.
During his teenage years, he worked full time for Word of Life Camps in Schroon Lake, New York. He then served honorably in the Marine Corps from September 1958 to September 1962 overseas in Morocco and Africa in the military police.
Clayton married Charlotte L. Ashman at the King’s College in Briarcliff Manor, New York on July 27, 1963. They lived in Pleasantville, New York where their two children, Sarah and Daniel, were born and they also adopted two brothers, Ricky and David. The family moved to Pennsylvania in 1989 and has resided here since. He is the proud grandfather of five grandchildren: Josh Travis and wife Dawn, Shawna Foor, Ellianna Vazquez, Liam Flack, and Adyson Flack, all of Chambersburg.
Clayton attended Westchester Community College, was a supervisor at Homelite Chainsaws, and was a Certified Technician at a Volvo dealership. Then he spent fifteen years in full time service with the New York Army National Guard of Engineers as a Staff Sergeant.
