Benton was a godly man and loved the Lord with all of his heart! He was an avid Texas Rangers fan! His girls and grandkids were his pride and joy! Benton has always had a passion for music and was a very talented guitar player. His favorite bands included Journey, KISS, heavy metal and contemporary Christian music. People have often mistaken him for Gene Simmons (which he absolutely loved)! He loved to do weekend projects with his wife Adina.
