Reverend Dr. Walter Edward Clayton (also known as Walt, Deek, and Peter) was born, reared and educated in Bankhead, Alabama. He was the oldest son of Walter Lee and Mary Ellen Clayton. After graduating from high school, he relocated to Pontiac, Michigan for many years. The Lord was working with him even as an entrepreneur in Michigan. He migrated back south in 1982, joined the Miles Memorial C.M.E. Church and held positions as Class Leader, Bible Study Teacher, and Director of Christian Evangelism. It was at Miles Memorial C.M.E. where he met and married the love of his life and soul mate Mrs. Lillian Holman Clayton.
