David Eugene Clayton

October 8, 1983 — September 18, 2022

David Eugene Clayton passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, September 18, 2022, just weeks before his 39th birthday.

The son of Sharon Kay Mason Clayton and the late David Norman Clayton, David was born in Austell, Georgia, on October 8, 1983. After high school, David served in the United States Air Force.

In addition to his father, David was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Jesse and Annie Fay Johnson.

Throughout his childhood, David had a very close bond with his two sisters. The three of them remained best friends into adulthood. Anyone who knew David knew that he had a giant heart of gold. He loved animals, loved music, and was an amazing artist. Even during his own hardships and struggles, he could be found helping any and every person that needed it. He had a genuine heart and made a huge impact on every person that he encountered. David will be remembered for his contagious laugh and beautiful smile. His kind spirit will be missed greatly.

His memory will forever be treasured by his mother, Sharon Kay Mason Clayton of Kathleen; two children; siblings, Jennifer Clayton of Bonaire and Amber Clayton of Warner Robins; paternal grandmother, Betty Flowers of Mableton; paternal uncle and aunt, Daniel Clayton of Mableton, and Vickie Holyfield of Ball Ground; maternal aunt, Dianne Jones (Keith) of Midland, Texas; cousins, Ben Suddeth, Stephen Suddeth, Zachary Clayton, Dylan Jones, and Dalton Jones.
