He was born October 24, 1965 in Caruthersville, Missouri, the son of Bennie Taylor and Charlene Peals.
Bennie was a Baptist/Christian. Bennie led a very diverse life never judgmental of other people and accepted them for what they were. He was known to be able to make friends with anyone and just loved people. He was an amazing person and would give you the shirt off his back. Some of Bennie's passions were; he was a jokester, loved B-B-Qing, truly enjoyed music of all sorts but loved his jazz. He enjoyed riding and taking care of his Kawasaki KZ1000-P motorcycle, loved to go fishing, and was pretty good at the art of wood burning. He was a sports fan but loved the Chicago Bulls especially during the Michael Jordan era. He loved the comedy shows "Kings of Comedy '', and any karate movies. But Bennie's world was all about his family. He was always there for them regardless of the situation. They knew they could always count on him.
He is survived by his three daughters, Catchet Young of Niles, MI; Andrea (Lemaris) Edwards of Indianapolis, IN; Deja Coldiron of Atlanta, GA; two sons, Garik (Amanda) Peals of Elkhart, IN, Tyler Kuhn of La Porte, IN; four brothers, Robert Lee Peals, Jr. of Indianapolis, IN, Bennie, Cory, Nathaniel; six sisters, Aretha (Farrin) Wigfall, Angela, Barbara Jean, Abagail, Dorthy, Juanita; eleven grandchildren, Mya Young, Sienna Young, Anya Young, Marshal Johnson, Jr., Jemarian Peals, Jordyn Lavergne, Carriana Peals, Jamareion Grant, Anna'Leena Peals, Lemaris Edwards, Jr., and Malachi Edwards;
