John 14:1-4 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 In My Father’s house are many [a]mansions; if it were not so, [b]I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. 4 And where I go you know, and the way you know.”

Mr. Elkins Bedford Clinton

November 13, 1961 – October 19, 2018

It is with deep sadness the Clinton, Smart and Goodridge families announce the death of our dearly beloved son, husband, father, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin and friend, Mr. Elkins Bedford Clinton. Elkins passed away on October 19, 2018, in Monrovia, Liberia after a brief illness.

Elkins fought the good fight to live for his wife and kids; he was a great provider and he wanted to live to keep being the excellent husband and father he was, but The Heavenly Father decided to have Elkins join Him in Paradise. We will miss him but we look forward to sharing eternity with him and the Father someday.

Elkins is survived by his wife, Frances N. Clinton; his children: Addie, Olive, and Lloyd Clinton and Thomas Williams; parents Sarah Smart and George E. J. Clinton and Albertha Addie Clinton; his brothers; Ishmael and Dolph Clinton, Darrick Porte, Histin Major, Francis Fayah, Charles and Swen Tweh, Emmanuel and Cyrus Jackson; and sisters; Vivian Morris, Roseline Jarbar, Debra Tina and Elkinsette Clinton, Sterling Clinton Spellman, Christiana Geebro, Victoria Jackson Toby, and Evelyn Jackson, several nieces, nephews, cousins, in-laws, and friends in Liberia, United States and Europe. Elkins left a legacy filled with love and kindness for his fellow man.

 **Elkins was predeceased by his brothers, Julius and Augustus Clinton.

Viewing & Wake-Keeping Friday, November 2, 2018 Trinity Cathedral Broad Street, Monrovia, Liberia

Funeral Saturday, November 3, 2018 Trinity Cathedral Broad Street, Monrovia, Liberia
