LaRoy Benham Obituary

     Mr. LaRoy Benham, age 66, of Brandenburg, KY, passed away on Sunday, October 8, 2023, at Harrison County Hospital in Corydon, IN.  LaRoy was born January 12, 1957, the son of Nevitt Graham and Edith Mae (Alston) Benham.  He was very hard-working, passionate, fun-loving, and a jokester, who took pride in helping others.  He owned and operated D&L trucking for over 35 years.  He loved his job and was a great friend to many.  He never met a stranger.  He also enjoyed attending truck pulls, riding his four-wheeler, and was an avid deer hunter.  He spent countless hours working on his family farm, but most of all enjoyed spending time with his family.  In his own words, “It’s always something!”

      LaRoy was preceded in death by his parents; and his brother, John Matt Benham.  He is survived by his loving wife of 47 years, Diane Benham; three children, Daniel LaRoy (Calvina) Benham, Matthew LaRoy (Noelia) Benham, and  Emily Diane Benham; five grandchildren, Chesney, Devin, Danielle, and Isaac Benham, and Abigail Humphries; his great grandson, Kingston LaRoy Benham; his sister, Bonita Tyler and her husband, Deacon and their daughter, Sarah Tyler; his brother Joe Benham; and a special niece, Nicole Benham.
