On April 9, 1954, Peter Linton was the first of twin boys born to the union of Frank Linton, Jr. and Alma Ursin Linton in Reserve, LA. He was the third of 12 children: Ernest, Donald, Paul (his twin), Cleveland, Arthur, Vanessa, Jeanette, Lori, Ronald, Wanda, and Darlene.\n\nBro. Linton was educated in the St. John the Baptist Parish School System and graduated from Leon Godchaux High School in May 1972. He married his wife of 44 years, Pamela Johnson Linton, on May 6, 1978. There were three children: Myesha Charnell, Peter Jr., and Tracy Lxchelle Linton. Myesha blessed him with three grandchildren: Mylah Tracy Joseph, Robert Coleman III, and Rhylan Tracy Coleman. Peter blessed him with Sammie Linton, his spoiled grand-dog. All four were his pride and joy!\n\nBro. Linton was baptized at the Greater New Plymouth Rock Baptist Church by the late Rev. Ernest Taylor, Sr. He later joined First Community Antioch Baptist Church under the leadership of the late Pastor Ferdinand Gaines, Jr. and his current Pastor, Dr. Steven D. Beckham. He was employed by Bayside Grain Elevator, later named Continental Grain Elevator, until it closed. He later became employed with Cargill Inc. until his health failed.\n\nIn 2005, this diehard Cleveland Browns fan was diagnosed with Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma. He bravely fought this treacherous disease with everything in him. Whether he was in Tulane Hospital or at a clinic appointment, he made it known that he was a Browns fan, not a New Orleans Saints fan! He boldly strutted his Browns paraphernalia at the Patrick F. Taylor Hope Lodge, a place that was renovated by New Orleans Saints Drew Brees. This diehard Browns fan reaped the benefits provided by a Saints player. What a guy!\n\nBro. Linton has been on a journey that few can understand, unless they have walked for even a minute in his shoes. He and his family rallied together and kept their focus on the promises of God. No matter what it looked like; no matter what it felt like; Peter knew that God was the One in control. He knew that he was living a testimony that would one day encourage others to stand. Peter also knew that the battle didn't belong to him, it belonged to the Lord. On Thursday, June 2, Jesus "did" work it all out for him. He called him to rest from his labor! That's what it's all about, living one's life in such a way that when our obituary is read the listeners will experience joy and regard the contents of the obituary as "precious memories". This diehard Cleveland Browns fan is now among the SAINTS! Saints of God!\n\nHe leaves to cherish his memories his Wife: Pamela Johnson Linton; Children: Myesha C.
