Benny loved spending time with his family. He especially loved cooking for his family. He worked for many years as a carpenter and working with wood was just as much a pleasure as a job. If you came to visit Ben, you’d probably find him reading a western or watching a little bit of an Andy Griffith episode.
Ben was born Aug. 17, 1952, in Monticello, Kentucky, to the late Sylvester and Evalee Spradlin.
He leaves behind his wife, Ruby, whom he was married to for 41 years. He also leaves behind his son, Adam (Josie) Spradlin; his daughter, Chenille (Jon) Johnson; and grandchildren, Cole Spradlin, Jackie Spradlin, Emily Spradlin and Tyler Johnson. Also living are his brother, Billy (Deeanna) Spradlin; brother, Norman “Bay” (Shirley) Spradlin; and his sister, Gleta Dalton. Ben has multiples nieces, nephews, and cousins who will mourn him as well.
He was as fierce as he was lovable. We will miss his laugh, his jokes, and his storytelling. We will miss Ben.
Funeral services will be 12 noon Thursday, June 3, 2021, at Bevil Bros. Funeral Home in Beaver Dam with Bro. Josh Corley officiating. Burial will follow in Sunnyside Cemetery.
