Clayton Hoepf

Clayton P. Hoepf, 38, of rural Findlay and formerly of Carey, passed away peacefully with his family by his side at 3:49 a.m. on Tuesday, June 8, 2021, at St. Vincent Medical Center-Mercy Health in Toledo from injuries sustained in a swimming accident.
Born Aug. 9, 1982, in Findlay, he was the son of Paul and Jil (Orians) Hoepf. His parents survive in Carey. He married Angie M. Kessler on Jan. 17, 2015. She survives in rural Findlay along with their children, Hayden, Chase and Hudson. Being a father brought him great joy. He is also survived by a sister, Candice L. Hoepf of Findlay, brother, Conner Hoepf of Carey and maternal grandmother, JoAnn Hoepf of Findlay. He leaves behind many friends with great memories and crazy stories to be told.
Clayton graduated from Carey High School in 2000. He went on to attend Tiffin University and experience college football. For the past 10 years he has worked as a high voltage lineman for Hancock-Wood Electric in North Baltimore.
Clayton was a true outdoorsman. He loved to hunt, trap and simply enjoy nature and all it’s beauty. He passed his love for nature to his children, who loved spending time with him on his outdoor adventures. He loved nothing more than attending his children’s sporting events. His entire world revolved around his kids and Angie. Clayton was the absolute best dad. Family and friends were everything to him. His intelligent, quick wit was second to none and almost impossible to one-up him, but it was always meant in a fun-loving way.
Friends will be received from 4-8 p.m. Friday, June 11, at Stombaugh-Batton Funeral Home in Carey. The funeral service will be held at noon Saturday, June 12, at the funeral home with the Rev. John Bamman, OFM Conv., officiating. Burial will follow at St. Mary’s Cemetery in Carey.
Memorial contributions may be made to Carey Athletic Boosters and sent to Stombaugh-Batton Funeral Home, 225 W. Findlay Street, Carey, OH 43316.
