Joe Clayton Being Laid to Rest Today

Joe Clayton Left – Jim Clayton Right

Joe Clayton, co-founder of Clayton Homes, is being laid to rest today. He was killed in a helicopter crash on the Tennessee River last week.

Joe’s brother and other founder of Clayton Homes, Jim Clayton survived the crash. A grandson and friend were also on the craft.

Visitations are from 3:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m tonight at the Berry Highland Memorial on Kingston Pike. Because of the pandemic the graveside service will be private for family and extended family. They plan to have a celebration of life at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, the family asked donations be made to The First Tee of Greater Knoxville and the Boys and Girls Club of Knoxville.
