Floyd Allen “Chainsaw” Clayton, 80, of Webster Springs, went to be with the Lord on August 15, 2019 at home surrounded by his family.
He was previously a Deacon for First Baptist Church, where he was a member, a trustee for Sand Run Baptist Church, a drill rig operator for Peaker Run Coal Company, and a United States Air Force Veteran.
