On Monday, March 15, 2021, Payton St. Clair, proud father and friend to everyone he met, passed away at 21years young.
Payton was born February 21, 2000, in Henderson and lived the majority of his life there. He graduated from Beckville High School in 2018 and later entered the Electrical Lineworker Program at TSTC in Marshall. He was currently working at Longhorn Steakhouse in Carthage and attended Pine Hill Baptist Church. He was also recently elected an honorary member of the Eastside Volunteer Fire Department.
Payton had a passion for people. He loved family & friend gatherings and always made sure he spoke to everyone. You never felt left out or alone in his presence. If you were family or considered his friend, you were important to him and you felt it. He had a kind heart, a gift given from his parents to the world. He taught us many lessons in life, none more though than to keep your eyes on him at all times. You see he loved to prank people. I believe it was his way to brighten your day, bring a smile to your face, and laughter to his ears. We will all remember his mischievous eyes, infectious smile, and memorable laughter. In honor of being blessed to have known Payton, may we all seek to bring more kindness, smiles, and laughter to this world.
