Obituary of Clayton James Hauser, MD

HAUSER MD, Clayton J.

66, peacefully passed away July 16, 2018 surrounded by his loving family and friends at Bayfront Health Hospital.  Clayton was born and raised in La Crosse, Wisconsin, completed his undergraduate degree at University of Wisconsin-La Crosse and earned his medical degree from the University of Wisconsin Medical School. In 1977 Clayton came to St. Petersburg with his wife, Sharon, and completed the Bayfront Family Medicine residency program. Along with Ernie Frierson, MD they opened Northeast Family Practice in 1980 where he provided patient care for over 18 years.  Clayton was a skilled and caring family physician who loved and was loved by his patients.  During later years in clinical practice, Clayton transitioned to work as an independent medical consultant for Met Life where he was considered a vital part of the IDI Claims Department for over 23 years. He willingly shared his medical knowledge freely with management, claim specialists, doctors and others with patience and understanding.   Clayton was an avid Green Bay Packers fan, enthusiastic Lightning fan, and a long suffering Bucs fan.  He treasured his pets, enjoyed traveling the world with his wife, was a passionate beer connoisseur, enjoyed his Porsches, and called his mother every day. His friends, family and patients will fondly remember him for his kindness, generosity and dry sense of humor. Clayton is survived by his beloved wife, Sharon of 44 years; dearly loved mother Joan; brother Rich (Sue); brother Bill (Lisa); brother Brian (Debbie); and sister Sallie Schroeder (Tim) and many nieces, nephews, great nephews and cousins. He was predeceased by his father Jim and brother Ron.
