Benton Cothran "Benjy" McNabb, Jr., 81, passed away comfortably and peacefully in the early morning hours, at his home in Gillsburg, MS on March 13, 2024.  He was surrounded by the ones he loved the most.

He leaves behind his loving wife of 31 years, Connie Carter McNabb; son, Benton "Duke" McNabb, III (Dawn), Bedico, La; and grandson, Benton "Coty" McNabb, IV San Diego CA.
