Obituary

DARNELL BENNETT SAMPLE was called home on August 23, 2019.
He was born on July 12, 1964 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Darnell “Benny” was the second son of the late Geraldine Sample and Thomas R. Casey.
Benny was educated in the Philadelphia School System and graduated from John Bartram High School.
While in high school, he learned the importance of serving others. Shortly after graduation, he took on the call of duty and joined the U. S. Military where he served with honor in the first Iraq war.
After fulfilling his duties to protect and serve his country, he started his own family. Benny was blessed with six children: Teresa, his daughter, and his five sons, Little Benny, Kiersten, Forrest, Elan and Dominique. Having children truly brought a sense of joy to his heart.
Outside of family, Benny enjoyed his career working for the United States Department of Defense in the medal department, where he recently retired after many years of service.
When he wasn’t spending time with his family, putting smiles on the faces of his loved ones, or telling war stories, you could find Benny cooking a good meal or dining out at a local restaurant — eating was truly one of his favorite hobbies.
Benny is survived by his father, sister, three brothers, daughter, five sons and two granddaughters, Destiny and Briana.
His family and friends wish him eternal rest in his Savior’s arms.
