Obituary for Kevin Benjamin

Kevin  Benjamin
Kevin Tyler Benjamin walked into the loving arms of the Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on April 30, 2018, as a result of his precious life being violently taken at the young, tender age of 19. Kevin was born July 27, 1998, in Omaha, Nebraska. Shortly after birth, Kevin moved to Mobile to live with his grandmother, Deborah Benjamin, who raised him and his younger brother, Kalieb Benjamin. He is preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Ruby and Dewey Frazier of Mobile.

Kevin was an avid lover of sports, and during his young life played football for Trimmier Park and basketball throughout middle and high school. He also enjoyed playing video games and competitively "hooping" with his neighborhood friends. At BC Rain High School, where he graduated May 2016, Kevin developed a passion for welding. After graduating high school, Kevin attended Bishop State Community College completing his welding degree. Kevin was a handsome, hardworking, sweet-spirited young man with tremendous potential of being self-sufficient. He dreamed of becoming his own man and earning his own way, then reaching back to help his family and those he loved.

His smile and laugh were captivating, and he always lit up a room. He was kind, polite, and mild-mannered. Kevin's sweet spirit will live on and on. He will forever be cherished, loved, and remembered. Kevin is known to all of us by many different nicknames. To name a few: Lil Kevin, Lil K, KB, and "White" Boy. Loved by all who knew him, Lil’ K was a chill, cool dude. Kevin loved to dress “fly” and have the latest Jordans. His sense of style was unmatched, and his friends lovingly referred to him as “The Real Jumpman 23.”

He is survived by his devoted grandmother, Deborah Benjamin, whom he affectionately called "Grandma" and “Mom”. His brother, with whom he shared a special bond, Kalieb Benjamin; two sisters, La Porsha and Kayla; nephews and niece, Kody, Kori, and P’ Irie; parents: Kevin Benjamin (Mobile) and Melissa Benjamin (Dallas); loving aunt, Shontee' Benjamin (Houston); great aunts: Aunt Carol (Atlanta), Aunt Rita (Mobile), Aunt Rose (E. Palo Alto); close cousins: Terri, Ashley, Ryan, Tyler, Mark, Marious, and Marlyn. He also leaves his best friend, Cameron Carter and his parents, Cecil and RaMona Carter; tutor and cousin, lil Peter Dais Jr; friend and tutor, Tony Walker and many other very close family and friends too numerous to count, including the Doyle Avenue family and the BC Rain community.

His remains will lie in state on Friday, May 11, 2018 from 1 - 8pm at Small’s Mortuary, Mobile.
Visitation will be held on Saturday, May 12, 2018 from 12pm until the 2pm funeral hour at Christians United Baptist Church, 2576 Pleasant Valley Road, Mobile, Alabama. Interment will follow in Pine Crest Cemetery-Mobile, AL.
