Dr. Michael Clay Obituary, Death – We regret to inform you of the demise of Dr. Michael Clay, one of our doctors. He was a beloved and well-respected team member of the Hohenfels Clinic and a devoted patriot. We are releasing his obituary, which celebrates the outstanding life he led, with his family’s consent. On September 21, 2023, at 1500, a memorial service will be place in the Hohenfels Post Chapel for those who wish to offer their condolences.
If Dr. Clay served as your primary care physician, you will be immediately transferred to another clinic provider who is open. On September 10, 2023, at the Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Landstuhl, Germany, Dr. Michael Clay, 64, entered eternal rest.
