Peyton was one of my favorite executives at S/P during the glory years. He was intelligent and direct, mostly fun with his sense of humor. One always felt comfortable and valued when working with Peyton. He will be missed, but remembered, Blessings to the McLamb family during this sad time.

A true Gentlemen has left us, but his compassion will continue to live with all of us.
Peyton was so kind to my family after my Uncle passed way....Always checking in
on Sally, Mom and Dennis.
His infectious smile and " Bear Hug " were always a welcome sight , as we would enjoy splitting " Burger Night ".
He was a great role model to me, as he continue to stay active while enduring his condition!
You may have passed this way before, but you will never be forgotten...
God Bless The McLamb's,
