We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Clark Funeral Home
It is with very heavy hearts that we inform you of the passing from this life of Mr. Elliott Bernard Holmes, 64, a native of Albany, NY currently residing at 655 Mickle Drive, Roanoke, Alabama. Mr. Holmes peacefully transitioned from this life on Saturday morning, September 4, 2021 at his residence in Roanoke.
Mr. Holmes was born in Albany, New York, where he spent most of his early years. His parents are Bernard "Bee" Holmes and the former Edna G. (Slay) Holmes. While in New York, Elliott was gainfully employed in both state and local government services. During his years of active employment, Elliott drove the snowplow, and garbage truck until declining health forced him to retire. His family relocated to Roanoke, Alabama, where they have remained for the past 14 years.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Holmes family which includes his mother, Edna Holmes of Roanoke, AL; father, Bernard "Bee" Holmes of Pinellas Park, Florida; brother, Garry Holmes; niece Allyssa Holmes; a special cousin, Cynthia McClendon, and a host of other relatives, family and friends.
