Clinton Alfonso Khan was born in Kingston, Jamaica on June 26, 1931, but was registered a month later; hence his birth certificate indicates July 26, 1931. He was the fourth child to the late William and Hilda Khan. Clinton attended primary school in Kingston and then moved on to Buxton High school where he joined his sister, Iris.

On November 12, 1954 Clinton married Daisy Pearl Russell of Saint Ann, Jamaica. From their union, they were blessed with 7 beautiful children – Carol, Claudette, Yasmin, Michael, Richard, Dennis, and David.

In 1954, Clinton and his new bride left Jamaica and migrated to the United Kingdom in pursuant of a better life. After several years of life in the U.K., they migrated yet again to the United States making Mount Vernon, New York their home for many years.

Clinton went on to graduate from New York School of Mechanical Dentistry in 1968 and worked as a Dental Technician until retiring in 1987. Once retired, he and wife, Daisy moved to Miami, Florida for a number of years and then to Palm Bay, Florida where they remained currently.

Clinton was a member of the Independent United Order of mechanics Western Hemisphere where he held the office of Jr. Deacon. He had a passion for gardening, politics, classical movies, tennis, and golf, just to mention a few. His selfless character to help others will be greatly missed by all.

Clinton is preceded in death by all of his siblings and his daughter, Yasmin and is survived by his wife of 69 years, Daisy Khan; children – Carol, Claudette, Michael, Richard, Dennis, and David; 16 grandchildren; and 14 great-grandchildren.

This is one of my favorite pictures of my grandfather and I. He was there from day 1. I couldn't have asked for a better grandfather, from his conversations to his caring nature, those same qualities among others, will always be a lasting impressions in my mind. Even though the Lord has called you home, you will never be forgotten...Ever! Thank you for all the great memories, I'll always love you Grandpa!
