Benny P. Stockdaile, age 71, of Columbus, Georgia died on Sunday, May 12, 2019. Benny was born on October 21, 1947 to Ben Preston Stockdaile and Sara G. Stockdaile in Cusseta, Georgia.

Benny graduated from Cusseta High School and after graduation he worked in the mechanical field and attended Columbus Tech, where he received his certification in motor mechanics. He retired from Communicorp as a pressman.

In his spare time he enjoyed spending time with his family, his children were his world and his grandchildren were his heart. If you didn’t find Benny in his yard gardening you could find him enjoying a good NASCAR race on the television. He was so dedicated to his family and worked so hard to provide for his family.

He leaves his legacy to be cherished to his loving wife, Melinda Stockdaile; his son, Burt Stockdaile and his wife Gracie Stockdaile; his daughter, Melisha Plemons and her husband Mathew Plemons; his loving grandchildren: Brian Stockdaile, Blake Stockdaile, Madison Richmond, Blaine Garren, Madison Goodson, Brooklyn Plemons and Oliva Plemons; his two brothers: Danny Stockdaile and his wife Cheryl Stockdaile of Evergreen, Alabama and Larry Stockdaile of Portland, Oregon; several nieces, nephews, and other relatives.

A service to celebrate Benny’s life will be held at graveside in Parkhill Cemetery on Thursday, May 16, 2019 at 3:00 PM. Family will visit with friends at Striffler-Hamby Mortuary on Macon Road, Columbus, Georgia on the day of the service from 1:30 PM until 2:30 PM with the family going in procession into Parkhill Cemetery.
