Glenn A. Benningfield, Taylor County, KY (1933-2017)

He professed faith in Christ and was a member of Good Hope Baptist Church where he served many years as a Deacon. He was a veteran of the Korean Conflict, having served his country honorably in the United States Navy. He was a retired employee of Fruit of the Loom and Moorman Feed. Glenn's laugh was so infectious, no one could resist joining in. To have laughed with Glenn, was to know the meaning of "almost laughing yourself to death"; your face would be distorted, tears would be streaming down your cheeks and you would be gasping for breath. Glenn loved going riding on his big strawberry roan gelding, Drummer. His nieces and nephews will cherish the memories of going to Uncle Glenn's to see his many animals. He always had dogs and usually, cats, horses, goats and turkeys.
