Clinton was the beloved nephew of Judy and Leon Hackney of Apex, NC and grandson of John and Jan Russell of Chapel Hill, NC. Clinton had never met a stranger and passed that loving trait among many others on to his son Carson. He was always wanting to help others or make someone’s day with his contagious smile and conversation. He was a loving husband who lifted up and adored his wife Ashley, who he endearingly called, “Tater Tot.” Clinton was a wonderful daddy, daddy he didn’t have to be, uncle, son, and grandson. He participated in the rodeo community as a bull rider for many years and loved the sport just as much as being a fan. He lived his life by the Cowboy Code and loved living his Cowboy Life and sharing that with his children, his loved ones, and his friends. He had a heart for all animals and working with his hands; especially to serve others and make them happy. He did this all with a sense of humor like no other. Clinton was a die-hard Tar Heel Fan, Cowboys fan, a family man, and man of Faith. He was loved by everyone he met and will be forever and deeply missed by all those who did.
