David L. "Jack" Benz II, 91, of Louisville, KY and Millbrook, AL, passed away January 25, 2014, in Luverne, AL.

Most of all, he loved being with his family, eating ice cream and laughing. In his later years, he gave freely of his time and resources to Bridges of Faith and their work with Ukrainian orphans. He was preceded in death by his wife of 65 years, Jean Benz. He is survived by his sons, David Benz III (Kathy) of Bowling Green, KY, Richard Benz (Karen) of Louisville, KY, and Tom Benz (Larissa) of Millbrook, AL. He was preceded in death by a brother, Merrill Benz (Frances survives) and is survived by his brother Jim Benz (Bernice), and by 10 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren.
