Celebrating The Life of Crayton Devone Saffold

 

 

Crayton Devone Saffold a.k.a "Norton" born July, 20th 1984 to Bernadette and Craig Wilson.
Crayton attended Arthur Ash Elementary School and further higher learning at Prospective
Charter High School where he received his high school diploma.
Shy to say the least, but not to a dollar. In 2016 Crayton was employed with Elite Staffing work-
ing various factory jobs. A musician with the hands he loved to do mechanical work. The vear
of 2020 was golden. Crayton was over excited to be upholding the position of a supervisor at
UPS shortly after being employed for a year moving up the ladder so rapidly.
However the journey just didn't stop there, he studied to achieve his goal to be a commercial
delivery license driver. Goal achiever he was. There was no goal that Crayton could not accom-
plish. Protector, provider such a phenomenal man.
Crayton stood out for his charming smile, laid back demeanor, swag, big heart, strategic way
of thinking and wisdom. Oh, what a wise individual he was. Crayton, was no stranger to this
thing called life, but built way different from most.
Crayton was always willing to lend a helping hand. Literally, give the shirt off his back to whom-
ever was in need.
Crayton lived life with a heart of a lion. Brave and courageous. There was no obstacle too big
or too small that he could not conquer.
Crayton played many significant roles in so many people lives and a father was one.
Crayton blessed the world with two beautiful daughters "Kaliyah Saffold and Keyannie Saffold"
and a daughter proceeding him in death "Ke'Zyah Saffold",. He leaves a legacy of divas. Father
figure to "Kejwuan Downs and Terron Symlie". Crayton was nothing less than a family man.
Well respected, humble, big influencer, someone destine to be greater than his situation. Cray-
ton
accomplished so much within so little time, building bonds with family and childhood
friends, creating so many wonderful memories without an enough time to create more. God
made no mistake he accepted the higher up kingdom leaving behind his loving mother and
father "Bernadette and Craig Wilson" siblings two older brothers "Stephen(Danielle) Saffold
and Cartez(True) Parker" five sisters "Christyanna Saffold, his baby sister whom he hold dear
