James was a shining light in the community! I always loved seeing him when he came by the Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped. He will be missed by so many!

Rest easy Mr. Benton. You where loved and admired by so many people.

James will be missed by so many people. I first heard of how he had done so much for Jeff Tucker from Jeff's mother Ruby Tucker. Ruby passed a few years ago and Jeff and Melissa whom are both blind have talked about their friend James and Sharon for so long. I got to meet James and Sharon last year in Mooresville N C at the bowling alley. They were such a happy couple. My prayers go out to every one who ever crossed pathes with James. He left a big impression on me. GOD Bless

Condolences to the family of Mr. Benton. My sister and I had the pleasure of sitting at the table with Mr. and Mrs. Benton at the Raleigh Neighborhood Exchange Event in 2016.

My first impression of Mr. Benton, both my sister and I agreed that he had a voice that would cause people to listen. Such a kind man.

God bless you Mrs. Benton, family and friends. Our prayers are with you.
