We dedicate this site to the memory of, and in appreciation of:

Paul W. Crayton, Sr. Mr. Crayton started Crayton and Company in 1950. His vision and guidance established the groundwork for this successful, well respected company. Mr. Crayton believed all successful people have a responsibility to help others by being involved and volunteering one's time and talents wherever the opportunity presents itself. He also believed life was to be enjoyed and lived to the fullest.

Floyd A. Smith. Floyd was a superintendent with Crayton and Company from 1965 to 2005. He truly cared for, and was quick to offer, a helping hand to others. Floyd was a friend to many and a stranger to none.

Helen Phillips. Helen was a receptionist and bookkeeper with Crayton and Company for many years. She was not just a loyal employee but a great friend and person. She is missed.

Davis Lindsey. Davis kept our jobsites spotless and material delivered on time for many years. He was an expert at his job. They don't make them like Davis any more.
