William “Billy” Benefiel, 88, passed away on September 28, 2021. He was born on April 9, 1933, to Nancy (Myers) and Charles Benefiel.

Billy was in the army for 17 years before he retired as a security guard for the casino. He was an avid fisher who loved sitting back and just waiting for his next big catch. Billy also enjoyed playing bingo and cards, specifically Kings in the Corner. Billy loved his family dearly, and truly cherished the time he spent with them.

Billy was preceded in death by his parents Nancy (Myers) and Charles Benefiel; sons John Benefiel, Bobby Benefiel, and Ronnie Benefiel; his daughters Patricia Woodard, Yvonne Poole, and Debra Demuth; and his grandson Gary Woodard.

Billy is survived by his loving wife of 25 years Cathy Knight-Benefiel; his daughter Yvette (Bob) Poole; his grandchildren John Poole, Keith Poole, Jay Benefiel, and Debra Dreggy; and his great-grandchildren Caitlyn Pritle and Cadin Dreggy.

Services are pending.
