In Loving Memory
February 28, 1959 – July 24, 2018

Kindhearted…clearheaded, “Mike” as he was affectionately known by his family and friends, made this world a better place with his presence for 59 years.  Mike was interested in so many things…collecting clocks..renaissance fairs…StarTrek (and was captain of a local mobile group…USS Jubliee),…books…art…music…chess…too numerous to list… He enjoyed and loved his family and friends. He would, if he could, entertain them for hours with his sense of humor…his puns and stories.  On Tuesday, July 24, 2018, after a brief illness, when he could no longer grace us with his presence, he turned to Scotty and said…”Beam me up”.  Mike will be truly missed by all…we all loved him so…

John (Mike) is survived by his wife and soulmate of 21 years, Sharon Lyn Jones (his “Sharona”); his father, John H. Clayton (Diane Clayton) of Panama City, FL, and his mother, Kay Barron of Mobile, AL; brothers, Michael David Clayton of Panama City, FL, Jeremy Clayton (Samantha) of Huntsville, AL; sisters, Cindy Vinson (Robert) of Magee, MS, Tracy Cavender of Panama City, Florida; his beloved feline “Lilbit”; and other family members and friends…

Services will be scheduled at a later date.
