On Monday, June 17, 2019, at 9:40 p.m., Benedict "Benny" Brummett was received into the loving arms of his Father at IU Health Ball Memorial Hospital in Muncie. Born in London, KY, on August 18, 1952, Benny was the son of the late Fred and Elizabeth (Cornett) Brummett.

Benny was a graduate of Garfield High School in Hamilton, OH, and a veteran of the U.S. Army. He married his wife, Vicki A. Kidd, on October 30, 1971, and they enjoyed nearly 42 years together before she passed away on June 26, 2013.

Benny retired from General Motors and was a member of both the UAW Local #977 and American Legion. He was a fan of UK basketball, and he enjoyed fishing, raising chickens and pigeons, and gardening. He especially loved being with his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. He was always there to give you his time and a listening ear. His faith in God, strong will, and positive attitude is what his family will remember the most. Benny attended Center Chapel UMC.
