Edwin Harry Clanton was an affectionate, dedicated, and hardworking man who always put the needs of others above his own.  Harry was born in Alpharetta, GA, in 1948.  He was a faithful member of Atlanta Street Baptist Church where he served as a deacon.  Harry was always ready to lend a helping hand and offer assistance to others with a true servant’s heart and a witty sense of humor.
