Erik James Clinton, age 36, passed away on Monday, July 19, 2021 at the Good Samaritan Medical Center in Brockton, Massachusetts. Born in Stoughton, Massachusetts on June 26, 1985, he was the son of Brian E. and Janet A. (Scheffler) Clinton. He was raised in South Walpole, Massachusetts, where he graduated from Walpole High School with the Class of 2003. After a short sabbatical, Erik returned to his education, earning his bachelor's degree from the University of New Hampshire in 2009.
As a proud graduate of Walpole Public Schools, Erik returned to Walpole High, taking a position as a para professional educator, teaching and mentoring young students. While he worked hard with his students, Erik also enjoyed the schedule that the school offered, affording him time off in the winter to carve the slopes of New England on his skis.

Loving brother of Emily E. Reese and her husband, Kenny, of Dedham and Daniel E. Clinton and his wife, Cori, of Norton.
