Stephen (Steve) Michael Benton
Stephen (Steve) Michael Benton died January 4, 2020, in Overland Park, KS at the age of 68.
Steve is survived by his mother, Barbara (Bobbe) Benton; sister, Terrye Morgan; two children from his marriage to Sheran Casey (Kay); son, Sean Benton; daughter, Stacie Benton and grandson, Benton Lee. He is preceded in death by his father, Robert W. Benton.
Steve was born August 31, 1951, in Kansas City, KS to Robert and Barbara Benton. He graduated from Shawnee Mission South in 1970. His children remember him as a supportive, kind, loving, father who would move heaven and earth for them.
Steve excelled at diagnosing and fixing anything that had an engine. He was a car mechanic for most of his life; working on his 1966 GTO, and working at Baron BMW for 11 years. Previously, Steve sold high-end audio equipment at Sound Enterprise and Burstein Applebee. He also installed high-end sound systems at BrandsMart. The stereos in any car Steve ever owned would blow your mind (and probably eardrums). In his spare time, Steve would be with family/friends, listening to music way too loud, and watching NASCAR. He loved nothing more than his two children and grandson.
A Celebration of Life for Steve will be on January 12, 2020, from 11:00-1:00 pm at the American Legion: 6521 Nieman Rd, Shawnee Mission, KS 66203.
All are welcome to attend and celebrate his life. The family would like to thank his caregivers at Shawnee Parc for their care of our beloved Father, Son, Brother, and Grandfather.
