From Today’s Sunbeam:

Brandon Lee Benner, age 18 of Woodstown, NJ, departed this life on early Friday morning. Born in Morrisville, PA on February 12, 1991, Brandon was best known for his joyful smile and easy going attitude. 

Brandon attended both Woodstown High School and the Salem County Vocational Technical School where he excelled in his welding program. He would have been a Senior this September. Brandon was a volunteer for the Woodstown Ambulance Squad, a self-employed landscaper, and a friend to many. 

Brandon’s interests included camping, shooting with his grandfather, country music, and horseback riding. He was a regular attendee of Sharptown Church and had previously spent a summer serving as a lifeguard for Delanco Camp in Tabernacle, NJ and Ranch Hope in Alloway, NJ.
