On March 6, 2022. Mr. Bennie Earl Proctor, age 76, of Rutherfordton, crossed over from this life into eternal life with Christ at his home. The son of Julia Proctor and the late Bernie Proctor, he was born in Savannah, Georgia, on December 4, 1945.

Bennie was an avid outdoorsman. In high school, he excelled at tennis while attending Rabun Gap-Nacoochee School. As an adult, Bennie loved bass fishing, hunting, bowling, and golf. In retirement, he enjoyed bicycling, trail maintenance with McDowell Trails Association, and serving his community through the local senior center and Meals on Wheels.

Right out of high school, Bennie served 2 years in the U.S. Navy as a Machinist, 3rd class. He then enjoyed a full career at Great Dane Trailers and concluded his professional years at the Savannah Morning News. Bennie is now in the presence of the Lord, free from all pain and sorrow.
