Chance Payne Clifton Obituary
Chance Payne Clifton, 17, went home to be with the Lord on Friday, June 21, 2013, due to a fatal car accident. Funeral: 11 a.m. Tuesday at First Baptist Church, Colleyville. Visitation: 7 to 9 p.m. Monday at the First Baptist Church Epicenter. All the community is welcome. Chance was born in North Richland Hills and from his childhood has always been a high energy overachiever who brought laughter and joy to everyone he encountered. Chance placed his faith in Jesus Christ as a young boy and demonstrated godly character in everything he set his mind to do. As a son, he brought delight and joy to his parents. As a student he was incredibly popular at Birdville High School and was a leader among his peers. As a friend, he was funny, loyal, outgoing and kind. As a young man he was responsible and highly respected. And as a football player he was a tenacious, "hold nothing back" defensive back that earned him First Team All-District recognition. Chance lived life to the fullest. He loved being with friends, driving his truck, fishing, working on cars and boats, riding and roping, playing football and making people laugh. Chance left his mark on the Birdville community. And the Birdville community left their mark by wrapping white ribbons around trees and lampposts all over town. The family would like to thank everyone in the Birdville community for their outpouring of love. There is no doubt that Chance lived his life with a smile on his face and joy in his heart and by God's grace we will do the same. Chance was preceded in death by grandfathers, John Davis and Donald Clifton. Survivors: Parents, Greg and Tina Clifton; sister, Emily Vanderpool and husband, Kurtis; sister, Carly Clifton; grandmother, Frances Davis-Peck and husband, John; grandmother, Dixie Clifton; aunt, Carol and uncle, Donnie Warner; aunt, Donna Clifton; uncle, Roy and aunt, Sherrie Clifton; numerous cousins and friends.
