He is survived by his wife, Amanda and their two daughters, Shelby Lane (10) and Josey Kate (3) who is lovingly referred to as "Hell on Wheels"; his parents, Charlene and Stanley Pinkston of Portales; his mother-in-law, Fran Bilberry and his father-in-law, Mike (Stacey) Bilberry both of Portales; his sister and brother-in-law, Audra and Rusty Higgins of Portales; and his nephew, Troy Eugene Higgins.  Clayburn was preceded in death by his grandparents, Charles and Mary Sours and Charles Clayburn and Ola May Pinkston.
