He played several instruments, the guitar, dobro, mandolin, and the harmonica. He played with the Court House Singer’s, at nursing homes, weddings, and family reunions. He also loved to sing. He would sing bluegrass and country gospel. DC’s favorite song was “Why Me Lord.” His favorite scripture was the 23rd Psalm. He played the part of a grandfather which he did very well. His grandchildren and great grandchildren all loved him very much and will never forget him.

Left to cherish his memory is his wife of 22 and half years, Carolyn Benton; one brother, Coy Benton; one sister, Elouise Hunter; five step children; and a host of nieces, nephews, and friends. DC will be loved forever and never forgotten.

Carolyn, we were so sad to hear about D.C.'s passing. We haven't seen y'all in quite some time but I remember all the times we heard him play and sing. He and Frank had some good conversations. I know how much you will miss him. May God wrap His loving arms around you and hold you close. Love you.
