Services For Richard David Benefiel

On Oct. 13, 2013, Richard David Benefiel, age 34, passed leaving two children behind. These children need to see their father one last time. They have asked that we have a viewing and I can't find the words to tell them no. Unfortunately, I also cant find the funding. During these troubled times, I am calling on your sense of humanity to help them see their dad one last time.

Richard was a welder that had been laid off after a shut-down on a construction site and he had a difficult time finding work. His twin brother Robert had recently moved to Texas to start a new career in welding. Earlier in the day before he passed, Richard was with Robert and accompanied him to class to show him some minor "passes" with the welder.

Robert was very proud of Richie and even flagged down a class mate to introduce him. Needless to say, Robert is devastated. Both of these men are not only my brothers, but my friends.

My name is Mark. I am also in a lot of shock, but need to help my nephew Seth (10 years old), and niece Amber (8 years old), see their father one last time. Because of what had been going on in Richard's life the children hadn't seen him in a couple of months.

My brother was a kind and caring person who loved playing with his kids, spending time with his teenage sister, and living life to the fullest. Please help us gather the funds necessary to give his children a proper goodbye.

Thank you.
