I will always treasure our fishing trips on Lake Martin and the wonderful smile on Benny's face each time he catch a fish. Our prays will be with Shirley and all of the family. Bud & Carroll Nason

I love to hear Dad tell stories of their childhood days growing up together. I'm grateful for the precious memories I have of my sweet Uncle Benny....visiting in Brewton, y'all visiting us in Mobile, visiting in Navarre, and of course at many family events especially the happy birthday celebrations. Uncle Benny was very special and loved by so many including me. Love and prayers for you Aunt Shirley, Danny, Tanya and families during this time of tremendous loss and grief.
