Benjamin "Benny" Lindsey Obituary

Benjamin “Benny” Lindsey, 78, of Temple Hills, MD, passed away on Thursday February 29, 2024.  A native of Union, SC, he was the first-born offspring of Mrs. Mary Degraphenreid Lindsey and Mr. Aldolphus Lindsey, who both preceeded him in death.

In his earlier years, Benjamin was known to play sports, being one of the top football players at Sims High School. He relocated to the Washington, DC area for a spell, returning to Union to continue school & also work at Sunny Slopes Peach Farm in Gaffney. In 1964, he made Washington, DC his permanent home. Here he met and married Maria Robinson, and from this union two children were born: SheRina Maria "Stinka" & Everett Benjamin "Spikey" (Patricia). In his later years he welcomed another son with Peggie Hayes. This son would carry the name of his mischievous spirit Dennis DeAndre' "Smokey" (Alicia).

His career spanned from working at a tire shop, performing auto repair, being a driving instructor, beverage distribution and lastly assistant manager of retail sales. In his free time, he enjoyed being the business manager of the Mavericks Social Club which held sporting events where he excelled in baseball, along with other entertainment throughout the area.
