Slain Baylor Seminary Graduate Remembered As “Gentle Spirit”

| March 4, 2011

WACO (March 4, 2011)—While police in the Dallas suburb of Arlington were looking for leads Friday in the attack that left Baylor seminary graduate the Rev. Clint Dobson, 29, dead, and ministry assistant Judy Elliott, 67, severely injured, those who knew the young minister were trying to come to grips with the loss.

"We are just dumbfounded. I don't think it has quite sunk in. We're in a state of shock,” said Truett Seminary Dean Dr. David Garland.

"He was known as a gentle spirit, a sweet spirit…very bright, very caring, and a great preacher,” Garland said.

Dr. Robert Creech, who was the Dobson family’s pastor and who had known Clint Dobson since childhood, was also reeling from the news Friday.

"My son spent a year in Afghanistan and came back unscathed,” he said, “and here is this young man his same age who goes to seminary and pastors a church in the city and dies violently.”

Dobson, a Houston native, earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from Baylor University in 2004 and graduated from Baylor’s Truett Theological seminary four years later.
