Mickey Benton was that rarest of individuals-- he gave back to the UAW and the community, without ever asking for personal recognition for his efforts. The world is a far better place because Mickey was with us. Let's hope we can learn from his example.

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Mickey was such a wonderful man and was so selfless in his time given to our community and those who needed help. He was always one of my most favorite people and was always ready to greet folks with his great smile and a big hug. He will be missed. Jenni Showalter

Rest in peace Cousin Mickey. I will forever remember your
kind nature and the times that Aunt Sadie and Uncle Frank
would bring you and Pepper down to Huntsville to visit us.
Your entire family have our deepest heartfelt sympathy.
