Clayton Arthur Stocks: Obituary

Obituaries

Clayton Arthur Stocks, 37, passed away Monday, July 9, 2019 at Northeast Georgia Medical Center. His death was sudden and unexpected, a chain of events triggered by a bee sting, which ultimately left his brain without oxygen for too long for survival. An unbelievable loss that leaves us with a void that may never be filled again…the loss of a son, brother, uncle, lover, and friend.
Clayton was born in Duluth, MN on March 16,1982, the first-born son to loving parents. He moved to Cumming, Georgia from Ely, Minnesota in 1995. Clayton attended South Forsyth High School and graduated in 2000. Growing up, Clayton was always with his dad and brother dismantling and reassembling a car, go-cart, lawnmower, or truck. Clayton was a natural at building and fixing things with his hands. He was one of the lucky few in this world that was able to make a living doing what he loved, working on cars. He was exceptional at his work as an autobody technician. Clayton loved the outdoors, kayaking, and going to the beach.
Clayton is survived by his parents, Glenn & Genevieve Stocks of Midway, GA, brother Kevin Stocks of Cumming, sister Katie Tambon and her family of Savannah, and the love of his life Amanda and her daughter Gracie, of Dawsonville, niece Olivia, friends, and numerous relatives across the country.
He leaves behind many people who loved him so. Though our sadness is deep and seemingly never-ending, we can find joy and solace in the fact that although he is not with us anymore, the gift of his organs is allowing others to live.
Clayton’s family is planning a Celebration of Life to be held on October 5, 2019, details to follow.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Clayton’s honor to The American Lung Association for Asthma Research. https://action.lung.org/site/Donation2?df_id=31272&31272.donation=form1
