Obituary

Benjamin Elroy Jones, 53, passed away with his family around him on July 27, 2022, in Louisville, Kentucky. He was a New Year’s Day baby boy, born on January 1, 1969, to the late Clarence Carter and Cynthia Green O’Bryant in Louisville, Kentucky. Ben was loving and care free. He had a beautiful smile and eyes that would light up the room. Ben was a ladies’ man and never met a stranger. Whether it was watching the Dallas Cowboys with Debo, or joking around with his niece, Chica, Ben loved hanging out and spending time with his family. He had a great sense of humor and loved being around people to socialize. In his spare time, Ben enjoyed eating at Long John Silvers, traveling to Gatlinburg, listening to his favorite R&B, Old School Motown, and church music, and watching cartoons and animated movies. Ben will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.

In addition to his parents, Clarence and Cynthia, Ben is preceded in death by his grandmother, Lucy Stevenson; and his brother-in-law, Dennis “Debo” Carney.

Left to cherish his memory, Ben leaves behind 7 siblings, Noredda Potts, Louis Jones, John Jones, Calvin Jones, Dowvona O’Bryant, Montella Sanders, and John O’Bryant; auntie, Wanda McIntyre; 3 uncles, James Green, Sherwood Green, and James Ross; a host of nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews, extended family, and close friends.
