    Clayton was one of my dearest friends. He was a man of God. his focus was on prayer ministry, serving as prayer advocate for SC United Methodist Men as well as the SE Jurisdiction and was known as a strong, devoted leader in the area of prayer. He will be remembered and missed. Clayton was devoted to his wife Evelyn and his two daughters and their families . Rest In peace Clayton.
