He was a devout Christian, and he was a devoted and faithful member of the Church in Lake, Mississippi, but continued to serve the Lord faithfully at Liberty Baptist Church in Forest, Mississippi. He frequently utilized his carpentry skills to serve his church and local association by giving of his time and talents to help with repairs and construction projects.

We send our love & prayers to Ms. Maude and all of Bro. Bennie’s family. His kind, gentle spirit made our lives better every time we saw him. We will miss worshipping with him and his family on our frequent visits to Liberty Baptist Church. While your hearts are heavy, what a joy to know he is Heaven, healed, whole and experiencing the joys of his Lord. May the presence of God bring you comfort and peace until you all meet again.
