MEMORIAL — Charles Benham II

Charles “Char” Benham II


I’m the shine you see in the star, and ray of sun that starts your day. My love is always where you are.

Dad and Mom
You are so missed by your family and friends.



You taught me so much in life and there’s so much you had left to teach. Although you were taken what seems like a long four years ago, I can still hear your voice and see your smiling face. So many things we had yet to experience together and so many memories passed. You will forever be in mind steering me in the semi-right direction. I only hope that I’m proving to be the best daughter. Love and miss you forever and always.

Wish you were here. You are always in my heart and thoughts, and are forever loved and missed.

Until we meet again, little brother,



A caring brother and outdoorsman that is missed.

Love, Brian


Uncle Charlie,

Wish you were here to meet Karleigh. You would have loved her. We miss you like crazy and someday we will see you again.

Love You,
Fred, Karleigh and Ashleigh


Uncle Charlie,

We wish you could see our children grow into young ladies. You would love them. They keep us on our toes. You are greatly missed. Love you!

Brian, Amy, Paige and Alexis
