Michael David Clayton, age 70, passed away peacefully February 5, 2017 after a heroic battle with a lengthy illness. He was born December 29, 1946.
He graduated from the University of North Texas with an accounting degree. He was a consultant for Timberline for many years before his semi-retirement. He was an active participant in a variety of leadership roles with The Boy Scouts of America. Michael enjoyed being outdoors either at his deer lease where instead of hunting, he enjoyed cooking and sitting with friends around the campfire, or at his lake house his favorite place to be with family.
He will be forever loved by his wife of 48 years, Debbie. They met as teenagers on a blind date and it was love at first sight. He was so proud of his sons, Jason and Ryan, and the men they have become. Michael adored his three grandchildren and enjoyed spending time with them.
Family and friends will remember Michael as the nicest, kindest and most thoughtful man. He is survived by his wife Debbie, his son Jason and wife D’Anna, his son Ryan and wife Laura, his grandchildren, Kaylee, Carter and Duncan and his sister in law Cindy Sauls.
