Clayton Fossum Memorial- Auto Body
Clayton was a beloved member of the Willmar community for 70+ years. He co-owned and operated the West Central Wheel and Body shop in Willmar. for more than 40 years before retiring in 1988. Customers fondly recall a welcoming atmosphere, great service, a cup of coffee, and a laugh or two with Clayton, Buzz and their employees. Clayton was an active member of the Willmar community in many ways and a volunteer fireman for 21 years. His compassion for his family, friends, neighbors, and pets was evident. This kind and gentle man’s presence was usually known before you could see him by his melodic whistle. This scholarship goes to an Auto Body student.
