Just 18 months after turning off one son’s life support the Clayton family was forced to do it again for their 27-year-old son Jarred

claytonTwo thousand and fourteen is drawing to an end, as we look forward to the Christmas break and some time off to share with family and friends. I make special mention of this because of the recent tragedy in Queensland with the sudden passing of Jarred Clayton. There are very few words that can adequately account for the loss and suffering Jarred’s parents, Graham and Leanne, sister Bree along with loving wife Leigh are feeling at this time.

Jarred was a respected and valued member of Condrill Services in Queensland, and will be sorely missed by those that grew up and worked with him. In support of Leigh who is expecting their first child in the coming months, I ask that we all provide support to ease some of their burden caused by his loss.

The CSDAA has set up a contribution fund to accept all donations on behalf of Leigh Clayton to provide financial support in their time of need. I would ask all employers to share this tragic event with their staff and join with us as a collective group to show support and help all those who knew Jarred get through this difficult time.

The CSDAA is raising funds to help the family and offer support moving forward. If you would like to donate please deposit your donation in the following account

For those that did not know Jarred there is a moving tribute that was published in the Gold Coast Bulletin on the 23rd October 2014. To read more please CLICK HERE to read more.

Thank you for your support.
