Obituary for Clayton George Wichtman

Clayton George Wichtman passed away unexpectedly on Friday April 21, 2017, at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital. He was born in Detroit Michigan on August 13, 1931. He worked as a Twin Pines milkman in Detroit for 20 years. Then he went onto working construction, followed by being a tanker driver for Flint Ink. He retired in 1993.

Throughout Clayton's life he enjoyed playing cards and dominoes, horseback riding, farming, yard work and keeping everyone's vehicles clean. He especially enjoyed spending time with his children and grand children. Clayton and his wife Barb enjoyed winters in Apache Junction, Arizona with their many friends. They loved hiking and having afternoon cocktails and cook outs on the patio.

Summers were filled keeping busy between the kids houses. Time at the pool, out on the lawn mowers, cleaning the shop, raking the hay and helping out wherever he could. Clayton's generous nature kept him busy 24/7.

Clayton is survived by his wife Barb of 66 years. His Children, Debbie (Scott), Laura (Gary) and the baby of the family Mark (Dawn). Clayton and Barb lost their oldest son Gary in 1971, due to a car accident.
