The 2017 Brown County Fairbook is dedicated in the memory of Thomas Cluxton. We lost Tom last year after thirty-two years as the Director representing Union Township on the fairboard. Tom became a Director in 1984. Tom and his wife, Marilyn, and family have been a vital part of the fair.
Tom’s major involvement was as chair of the Feeder Calf Show as well as the Open Beef Show. In addition he was chair of the Monday night Parade as well as serving on several committees as chair and member of: Demo Derby, Election, Sanitation, Market Barrow Show and worked on many more committees.
Tom’s family continues to be involved with the fair as his son, Todd Cluxton, has replaced his father as the Union Township Director. His wife, Marilyn, each of his other two sons and wives and grandchildren continue to help with the feeder calf show on Tuesday night.
Tom and his casual smile will surely be missed at fairboard meetings and at the fair. We feel blessed to have had Tom as a fairboard member.
