Elbert was born in Providence, the son of James Jones and the late Sally Moten, and sibling to the late Odell, Della and James Moten. He is survived by his youngest sister Margaret Moten, Shirley Robertson, Linda Moten, Curley, David and Stanley Moten and many nieces and nephews. Elbert was a well liked person who enjoyed helping others. He loved music, singing, writing poetry, riding his bike in the country, detailing cars and cleaning things. Elbert volunteered at Mathewson Street Church for 4 years. He always helped out in any way he could, and was entrusted with authority, and well admired. All who have met him know that he was quite the character and enjoyed life to the fullest. He is missed dearly by all. There will be a final service for Elbert on Friday, July 9th at 9am at the North Burial Ground on North Main St. and Branch Ave. in Providence. Donations will be accepted for his burial, and will be greatly appreciated. To donate, contact any representative of Mathewson Street Church, or call 401-331-8900 and leave a message.

Street Sights serves as a forum for advocates, homeless and formerly homeless people, students, state officials, and the general public to share accurate and honest information about issues relating to homelessness. Our goal is to shed light on a subject not often addressed and, to some degree, ignored. We aim to provoke discussion and give a voice to voiceless people in our community. We provide a space free of judgment in which we recognize the dignity and worth of each person and in doing so empower the group as a whole.
