John was a member of Fresh Fire Ministries, loved cooking, was a huge Pittsburgh Steeler fan and was kind to everyone he knew. He loved to go shopping, but more for the opportunity to run into someone and talk with them.
He is survived by his wife, Kimberly Ann Douglas Benton, whom he married on January 27, 1990; three children, Uriah Hill, Nicole Benton (Ryan McCurdy) and Natalie Benton, all of Marietta; three granddaughters, Jaydon Benton, Aneesha McCurdy and Joselyn Castin; siblings, Nora Lewis, Brett Benton, Angela Stevens (Tim), Bruce Benton (Jackie) and Rob Benton; and many nieces and nephews.
Funeral services will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 16, 2019 at the Marietta Chapel of Cawley & Peoples Funeral Home, with Dr. Christopher Longgrear officiating. Visitation will be from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the funeral home. Burial of his ashes will take place in Oak Grove Cemetery at a later time.
Donations may be made to The Parkinson's Foundation in his memory.

My prayers and thoughts are with all . I haven't seen John for quite some time . Every time I saw him we were so glad to talk together . He was a beautiful person with ,very kind and gentle ways . I will miss knowing I will not see him on this side . He is with Jesus now , safe and more loved than ever . See you someday John . May treasured memories live in all hearts .

Wow, Iā€™m sad to learn this. Johnny was a genuine soul, with a kind heart. But he rests with Jesus now, and for that we can find complete peace in, for he and his family. šŸ™šŸ½ā™„ļøšŸ™šŸ½
