Ted Lesley Elkins, age 85, was a son to the late George Davis Elkins and Lillie Bell Thomas Elkins.
Truly a member of America's Greatest Generation, Ted and his four brothers served simultaneously in various branches of our country's armed services during World War II. Mr. Elkins spent his naval tour of duty as a mechanic at the Naval Air Station in Florida, earning the American Area Medal and the Victory Medal. He retired after 38 years of service with Dupont. Ted was a member of Spring Valley Baptist Church where he served the Lord in many ways. Ted was a faithful husband, loving father, and obedient servant to his Lord. His faith was authentic. He truly practiced what he preached! He was a man of his word, who loved his family and always placed their needs above his own.
Interment in Greenlawn Memorial Park with military honors provided by the US Navy.
