Brian Claxton, with his friendly smile and outgoing personality, is our Resident in the Spotlight this month. He is a father with a positive outlook and an inspiration for all ages.
Born of two hard-working parents in Manchester, England, he joined the Royal Air Force and loved it. After his military service, he became a printer - work that demanded perfection. Brian worked tirelessly at in his craft until he decided to go to night school to advance his career. He says, "I knew I could do it...I knew it would work out." Upon graduation, he worked in regional sales for Eastman Kodak. Always an optimist, Brian advises "work hard, keep growing, and continue setting new goals."
He has loved living in the United States and says he has met great people here.
The father of three wonderful children, he is now a grandfather to three as well!
Brian's hobbies include golf and doing things with his hands such as woodworking and fixing things. Another passion of his is automobiles and motorcycles. As Brian puts it, "I'm mad about cars!"
He is a fabulous dancer and loves dancing during our musical events. When Love on a Leash comes to visit, you will be sure to see Brian enjoying all the pups.
Brain can be seen helping around ActivCare Bressi Ranch in any way he can and spreads joy while he does. Recently, when a fellow resident friend was under the weather, Brian picked flowers from the courtyard garden and brought them to her!
Happy Father's Day, Brian! You bring joy to all of us at ActivCare at Bressi Ranch.
