Obituary of Clayton A. Mitchell, Jr.

Clayton Alexander Mitchell, Jr., passed away suddenly on August 4, 2021. Born in Phoenixville, PA, on March 23, 2021, Clayton was the beloved son of Shanya Lewis and Clayton Mitchell, Sr.


Clayton was a beautiful baby boy whose smile and laugh could light up a room and make any day brighter. He touched so many lives during his brief life. He had an infectious grin and loved to snuggle and sing silly songs. He was loved and cherished by so many who will miss him deeply. 


In addition to his parents, Clayton is lovingly remembered by his maternal grandmother, Alyson Wildman; his paternal grandparents, Tyneka and Charlie Mitchell; and many aunts, uncles, great-aunts, great-uncles, cousins, and friends. We miss and love you.
