Clayton James JenkinsVisit Guest Book
Clayton passed away early morning April 16th from heart failure.
He was born on December 18, 1989 one minute ahead of his twin sister and best friend Jamie, and to loving parents Richard and Vicky.
He enjoyed a boisterous and energetic upbringing in the Holladay and Fruit Heights areas. He loved sports and especially baseball spending countless hours playing catch with his dad. He was a wizard in video editing and production, computer software of all types and was perfectly content to be at his laptop day and night. He was a young Entrepreneur, started his own business at 17 and helped with website development for other enterprises.
At age 12, he contracted diabetes but handled it on all fronts and was proud of his control of the disease. He attended Burton Elementary, Kaysville Jr. High, where he was a class officer, and graduated from Davis High School. He was a senior at Utah State University and was employed as an IT Security Analyst for the State of Utah - a job he loved. He will always be remembered as our "Bud" and was a good, loyal friend to many and a protector of his mom and sister.
He was preceded by two grandfathers Burke and Jack.
Survived by parents and sister, his Grandmothers Dorothy and "Nana" Joan, Aunts Susan Osborne (David), Cathy McAbery (Chuck), Uncle Rick Wilder (Mari), cousins John, Deena, Ryan, Kelli, Rich, Andy, Erin and Meghann.
