Benjamin Harold Lynch

Benjamin Harold Lynch, 77, entered into eternal rest April 24 in McLeod Regional Medical Center of the Pee Dee in Florence.

Benjamin was born to the late Benny and Eunice Lynch, a farmer and a homemaker in Florence on May 29, 1943.

He was immersed in the Christian Community of Grace and Glory ministries of Coward.

Benjamin graduated from J.C. Lynch on June 7, 1960. Two weeks after graduating he joined the Air Force as an Airman First Class. He went on to do basic training at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas. He went to France until 1963 returning home in August to become a master mason and lifelong member of Robert Burns Lodge NO. 337.

Benjamin had a beautiful soul. He was very humble and soft spoken and got along with everyone. He was a loving son, father, husband and grandfather. 

In his spare time, he enjoyed fishing, golfing and spending time with his two boys and his grandchildren. He was very patriotic and loved this country that he fought for.
