  7. If there was a biography of Clayte Brewer I it would be a top ten best seller. My sincerest condolences.

  8. So Very Sorry for your loss – and ours! Clayt was always there when we needed him, no matter the time, no matter the weather – we could always count on him. They don’t make ’em like that any more! He will be missed!

  9. It’s hard to believe Clayt is gone, I still expect him to come out and pump my gas at Brewer & Brewer. When he got the “Claytona” built they tried to use it against him in the next election and it failed miserably, because everyone knew he did it for the kids. He was a character and there will never be another one like him. My deepest condolences to his family, they can proud of how many people he helped and the smiles he brought to so many faces.

  10. Clayt and my dad were good friends in auto business and I am sure they are together working on engines for our Lord. Rest in peace to a gentleman and leader.

  11. Very sorry for your loss, Clayt was a great guy, when you pulled into brewers you knew he was coming out with a smile and a joke. He will be greatly missed. My condolences to the family.

  12. Becky clayt Jr and family. Clayt was sure a joker and remember the days at classic weekend.we will always have the memories…. He will be truly missed..our prayers are with you and your family….. . RIP CLAYT……..

  13. Clayt was a wonderful man … I could always depend on my vehicle being repaired properly and quickly at a fair, affordable price …

  14. A man of respect and honor, you will be missed. Our prayers are with you and your family. Thank you for all you have done for our community.

  15. RIP Clayt! My sincerest sympathies to his family and friends, Clayt was a wonderful man. We will surely miss his smiling face at the credit union!

  16. When I get my paper and doughnut at Price Chopper, they would ring me up and tell me how many gas points I had. I would respond
    “there is only one place to get gas in this town and it is at Brewer and Brewer on Broadway”. There would not be a 1/4 Midget race track in Volney if it were not for Clayt Brewer. May his legacy live on.

  17. When you think of Fulton, New York – you automatically think of Clayt. He will not be forgotten especially all the lives he had touched one way or another.

  18. We are so very sorry to hear of Clayt’s passing. He was such a wonderful man, always had time for you no matter what..we were so blessed to have known him and he will be greatly missed.. He was a pillar of the community and greatly respected by all who knew him.
    Our deepest sympathy goes out to the whole family.You will be missed, RIP dear man.
    Bob and Monica Donaldson

  19. Yes we will miss Clayt. Honest men that work in politics are hard to find, Clayt was surely one. He lived his life for “The People” I will never forget him or the members of his family I have meet. He will for ever be miss in this community! RIP dear Friend!

  20. It brings great sadness to think of Clayt not being there at the station, He always had a smile and always called you hon. I will miss all our discussions about the times we served on the legislature. He loved his time there. May his family find peace with this great loss.
