Clayton Lane Beech, 50, passed away at his home in Chatom, Al, Monday evening, October 31, 2022. Born in Berlin, Germany, on June 15, 1972, Clayton was a graduate of Washington County High School. He also attended Alabama Southern Community College and was a die-hard Auburn fan. A vibrant, life-loving man, Clayton was known for his sense of humor, always joking and kidding with anyone around him. A central part of his life was his nieces and nephews, who adored him. Clay Bob, as he was called by them, certainly returned that adoration. He loved spending time with them, with his brother and sister, and with his pets. Clayton loved people. Anyone who knew Clayton, loved him as well.
