Benny was a very true person. He had a real heart
kindness. Benny was in the past a good friend of mine. We saw each other often in several places in Ahoskie and would catch up on family, work and friends. I am so glad that friendship was still like yesterday. Great down to earth person. I will miss him, but there is no worries about where he is now. He has always had a love for his pets. He was a true humanitarian for this earth.

Benny was my good neighbor and friend. I met him about 6 years ago when I bought the property across the lane from his house. Benny always kept our lane graded for nothing in return but a thank you. He freely let me borrow his tractor to do work in my yard. Anytime we saw each other in our yards or in town he would take the time to stop and chat about work, children, gardening and pets. Benny was a good neighbor and friend and will be greatly missed. My sympthies go out to Jordan and Jennifer and all of his family.

Growing up in the country as next door neighbors, Benny was my best friend. We played together often and explored the woods around our house. We rode his mini bike, played with trucks, played ball in our yards, rode bikes, watched the Lone Ranger and explored around, when we weren’t in our fort in the woods! Though I have not seen Benny in a lot of years, thoughts of our times remain in my heart as one of my best childhood memories. My prayers, thoughts and love go out to the family in this most difficult time. I pray for God’s peace and comfort to be with his children, Miss Katie, Jimmy and Jennifer.

Benny and I grew up in the same section, not neighborhood because we lived in the country. We played together as kids, went to school and church together. As happens in life we didn’t see much of each other for several years. In the the last few years we would talk at the farm shop or the fertilizer warehouse quite often..We had many in depth conversations over the last few years and shared many laughs. I am glad I got to talk with him a week ago. He was a good soul. Rest In Peace my lifelong friend.
