Clay was a lifelong resident of Baton Rouge who graduated from Central High School and Southeastern University, and then spent over 20 years as a Financial Advisor. He attended First New Testament Church with his family. There are so many things that could be written about the beautiful life Clay lived. His love for his family was abundantly evident in everything he did. He loved sports, music, playing games, coaching baseball, working, vacations, and going to church. He loved people, and was dearly loved in return. A thousand attributes could be named to describe Clay, but the only thing he really wanted us to remember about him, is that he loved Jesus. If we listed every good thing we could say about him, he would reply, “That’s not me, it’s Jesus!” Clay gave his life to the Lord when he was only 8 years old, and he lived his entire life for Him. He was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2016, and he spent the last 16 months of his life telling the world about the love of God. Rather than hiding in anguish, he faced death proudly. He used his diagnosis to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and show the watching world that God is able to carry us through the trials of this life. His full testimony is told at Survivors include his wife of 18 years, Kristy Furlow; their children Sam, Grace and Ben; parents Jim and Flo Furlow; brothers Ron and Steve Furlow; in-laws Richard and Susan Longmire; many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.
