On Dec. 2, 2018, our family lost its most crucial and beloved husband, father and grandpa Paul Benton. This man was truly the “gentle” in gentleman: soft-spoken, intelligent and definitely the “listener” of our family. His encouragement, actions and deeds were entwined in his genuine love for family. Although his “roots” were in Texas, of which he was quite proud, he became an Okie at heart via his degree from Oklahoma A&M College. Born in McKinney, Texas, Oct 13, 1932, to Leslie Frank & Maggie B. (Kindle) Benton. Paul later moved to Oklahoma where he began a life of self determination and dedication to “making it in life” and became his own man by throwing newspapers at age 7. He faithfully served his country in the U.S. Army and was deployed to Korea during this conflict. Paul honorably achieved the rank of Master Sergeant. He was especially proud to be in the last graduating class of Oklahoma A&M College where he received his Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. Paul was married to Beverly Haun for 35 years and while married, he was drafted to the Army. They had two children and Paul worked for Southwestern Bell. He then was employed by AT&T where he stayed until retirement. Paul married Alice Lay Lechtenberger in 1991. They enjoyed retirement, traveling, being antique dealers (Benton’s Bounty) and just “being together”. Preceding Paul in death were his mother and father, brother Leslie Benton, and sisters Anne and Margaret. Surviving family members, including his loving extended family are: Scott Benton, Edmond, (Nick and Andrew, grandsons, and Eugenia); Kerri Hickman, Longmont, CO. (Mike and grandchildren Jim, Rachel and Kaitlyn); Alice, wife of the home; stepchildren Kirk Lechtenberger, Dallas, (Blair and grandchildren Olivia and Wes); Dayna Koontz, Del Mar, CA. (Jim and granddaughter Alice), and Denise Lechtenberger, Denver, CO.

I am so sorry for the family’s loss. Death is truly an enemy. May you find comfort from the future promise recorded in 1 Corinthians 15:26 which says “the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing.” This is a promise from God’s word the Bible and we can be certain he will fulfill his promises.

My sincere condolences to the family. May the God of all comfort give you the comfort you need to endure this difficult time and the days ahead (2 Corinthians 1:3,4)
