Beverly Clayton Cline, 70, of Statesville, N.C., passed away Thursday, July 13, 2023.

Clayton was born June 30, 1953, in Taylorsville, N.C., and was the son of Loretta Chapman Cline, who survives, and the late Clayton Philo Cline. He was a graduate of Alexander Central High School and was married to Karen Kite Cline, who survives. He worked for PepsiCo, Inc and First Baptist Church of Statesville until his retirement. He was a member of First Baptist Church of Statesville.

Clayton was involved with multiple ministries throughout his life, including Operation In-As-Much, Community Bible Study, multiple church mission trips and the men’s ministry at First Baptist Church. He had a love for the outdoors and enjoyed time in the mountains, hiking and fishing. For family get-togethers, he loved to cook and grill for his family. Clayton was a handyman and was always available to help his family with home projects ranging from carpentry to plumbing. His nature was to be a helper, and he will be dearly missed by his family and those who knew him well.
