Elton James Levingston

Elton James Levingston also known as Jamie or EJ. A son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, and dear friend. He was born on September 22, 1952 in San Diego, California to the late Bertha Mullen and Elton Levingston Sr. He passed away of an aortic aneurism on December 22, 2014. He was the third child of five. He graduated high school in San Diego and shortly after joined the military. Elton retired from the military after serving a total of 21 years in the Navy. He fathered four children. His first born Mary Levingston who preceded him in death, Gregory, Tiffanie, and Nicole Levingston. At age 29 Elton met and married his life partner Bonnie Strickland and together they cherished 32 years of marriage.

Elton had a kind and wonderful soul. To know him was to love him. From an early age he was a collector of people and friendships. He truly cherished his relationships with others. Elton often… actually always talked to people and made them laugh. He was all heart and made it a priority to keep in touch with those he cared about. He was the biggest most sentimental 6 foot 5 inch black bold man you could ever meet. And he loved that about himself. Elton was his own biggest fan. He enjoyed making time for all people. He made every interaction with others an opportunity to collect another friend. He prided himself on the three things he said he did best, cooking, driving a bus, and talking _ _ _ _. If you knew him, surely you’ve heard the saying. The amount of people touched by Elton is immeasurable due to the time he spent connecting with others. To those who were near and dear to his heart, he made you feel cherished. He often times told those he loved how much they meant to him. He lived his life as a man who was never too proud to show his affections towards others. He believed everyone was entitled to his opinion and shared it with you whether you wanted it or not. Elton regularly talked about what a proud father and grandfather he was. He had a total of 10 grandchildren and enjoyed spending time and taking pictures with them. He was truly the life of every party and made his presence known wherever he went. And let’s not forget what a loyal and devoted San Diego Charger fan he was. Elton loved deeply, lived fully, and cared honestly. He will be remembered as joining his angels.

He leaves to cherish his memory his Siblings Valerie, Vester and (Silvia), Donald and Robert. His wife Bonnie, His Children Gregory: Tiffanie, and Nicole. His beloved ten grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and other extended family members. As well as all the friends his heart chose to be family
