Bobby was born in Tupelo, MS living most of his life in Slidell. Was an Army Veteran, owner/ operator of Benson’s Gulf Service Station for 18 years and lover of pool, planes and the words of Hank Williams. Preceded in death by his mother Janie Ruth Lowe and father Robert L. Benson Sr. Survived by his 3 sisters, Sherry Benson McInnis, Rebecca Benson Morley, Deborah Benson Vann; daughter, Melissa Jane Benson; son, Robert Louis Benson III and all those who cherish the sound of a well broken 9-ball rack or the roar of a single engine plane careening down the runway with sights on the sky. Wheels-Up Bobby Benson, the skies are clear!
