Dexter Louis Clay was born June 12, 1956 and passed away at the age of 61 on August 26, 2017 at 2:32p.m. in Big Bear Lakes, California, in the beautiful mountains that he loved. He was raised in the White Oak Terrace subdivision in Northwest Houston, Texas. And graduated from Eisenhower High School in 1975 where he played and loved football. The first football thrown by him to Tommy George will be inducted in the Aldine School District Hall of Fame, currently under construction. Clay was a cast member of the “Star Trek Next Generation” television series before he began the KatyNation Project, here in Katy. The city’s support and excitement at that game he attended with a best friend while on a trip from California was his inspiration for the Project. He was passionate about the Project and continued actively working towards the goal of completion into a motion picture movie. Dexter wore many hats as an athlete, orator, screenplay writer, witty comedian, director, motivator, remodeling contractor, and friend. He authored and published five books: “Black Eye on America”, “Walking With Power”, “KatyNation – Where Football Gets Real”, KatyNation 2 – The Tradition Continues”, and his mother’s life story entitled “Only For A Season”, a heartfelt gift to her that he was able to present to her before his passing. His last gesture of love was the donation of his body to Research for Life – Cancer Research.
A Celebration of Life Memorial service remembering our beloved will be November 4, 2017 at the Sheraton Brookhollow Hotel (Houston), Magnolia Room, 3000 North Loop West from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.
He is survived by his mother, Quincia Clay; sister, Carolyn Richardson-Wells; brother and sister-in-law, Carl and Charita Clay; and many close relatives and friends.
