He was born March 24, 1972, son of Dinnos and Erma Dean Clayton. He was raised in the Hickory Corner Community with many relatives and friends. He graduated Chester County High School in 1990. He married his high school sweetheart, Maria Holmes, March 21, 1992. They had three children Dara (Will) Young, Logan Clayton and Ben Clayton. He loved and was so proud of his children, but the apples of his eye were his grandchildren, Brynli, whom he called “Tater” and Owen, whom he called “Tot.” He would gladly tell you all about them. He was proud of his son, Logan, and what a great reunion they had in Heaven this past week.
He was a very accomplished construction worker. If you knew him, you knew he was meticulous, making sure everything was level and square. After graduation, he worked for Davey Clayton, hanging dry wall until 2000. He then worked in construction with his Daddy until 2008. From 2008-2011, he was self-employed. In 2011, he joined E&T construction and continued with them until 2020. In 2020, he returned to being self-employed until the time of his death.
Anyone who knew him knew that he loved his family and friends. He also had a deep love for music. He was a special son to his late mother and father-in-law, Donald and Delilah Holmes.
He is survived by his wife, Maria Clayton; son, Benjamin Clayton; daughter, Dara (Will) Young; sisters, Angie Clayton and Debbie Clayton both of Bethel Springs; sister-in-law, Vera (Steven) Reed; brother-in-law, Donald (Linda) Holmes, Jr.; nephews, Brandon (Lauren) Holmes and Andrew Wolter; nieces, Haley (Chris) Holmes, Abby Wolter and Erin Greene; great-niece, Elena Greene; and great-nephew, Braeden Greene.
He was preceded in death by his son, Logan Clayton, and his mother, Erma Dean Clayton.
