Clayton Rivenbark, Jr., 62 of Dallas, Texas. He was born on July 15, 1957 in Dallas Texas to Clayton Douglas “Doug” Rivenbark, Sr. and Faye Cordelia Watson.

Clay was known by many for his renown graphic design career and a favorite teacher to many. Outside of his career, he made many friends by showing kindness and compassion to those in need.  He was the type of person who made new friends wherever he went, and always had a smile on his face and love beamed for all as demonstrated through his many acts of kindness.  Clay was a true Texan through and through and loved his country, Dallas Cowboy and good old chili cookoffs.  Towards the middle of his life Clay reconnected with his Judson High School sweetheart, Susan Collingwood Preihs.  They spent 16 years together travelling, cooking and enjoying each others company.  He is survived by Susan, his stepdaughter Kristin Preihs Twombly husband Nick. As well a grandfather to Ambellina and Lily Tweihs. 

The family asks that all remember Clay for his Big Smile, Kind Heart and his Love of the Arts.

A Celebration of Life will be announced at a later date.
