Born May 18, 1977 in Waynesboro, he was the son of Annette (Bell) Bess and the late David Mitchell Claytor, Sr.
David was a 1995 graduate of Wilson Memorial High School. As an avid sports fan, Mitch enjoyed spending his Sunday afternoons cheering on the Washington Redskins and NASCAR driver Kevin Harvick.
