Franklin Benjamin Dobson aka “Benny” age 62, of Easton went home to be with his Heavenly Father on Tuesday, September 7, 2021, as a result of an accident.
Born October 5, 1958, son of the late Elva Aquilla Downes Dobson and Franklin Benjamin Pinder. Benny attend Talbot County Public Schools. He was last employed as a landscaper for several families in Talbot County. In his earlier years he worked for local companies including Price Car Wash and Allen Family Foods.
As a child, Benny attended Sunday School and Vacation Bible School at Water’s United Methodist Church in Oxford, MD. In his more recent years, Benny loved attending his two special churches—Easton Baptist and Union Baptist
Benny had a love for fixing bikes and cutting lawns. He felt that it was his job to ensure that everyone’s yard looked fantastic. He would often ask people to check out the freshly cut lawns or to watch him cut grass with great pride. Most recently, he purchased a new tractor, which became his pride and joy. Benny would often say that no one knew how to fix his tractor like his brother Eddie. Although Benny never had enough patience to wait for Eddie to actually fix his tractor.
Benny spent a lot of his time at the office of Every Voice Counts and will forever be considered an honorable member of the team. The staff knew to expect Benny to either pull up to the office on his bike or his very loud tractor, which was often accompanied by the loudest police-like knock at the door. Upon Benny’s arrival, they all knew that he was either delivering some important drama that would either involve an abundance of laughter or deciding which one of the employees would be ushering Benny on his way to his next location.
Benny had a great love for the ladies and declared that wearing his hat to the side with his sunglasses on was a guaranteed way to find someone special. It was those types fun-loving comments that will never allow us to forget about Benny. Some people knew him as “Benny the tractor man”. Others knew him as the fun, fussy and/or lovable “Benny”. But all in all, he was loved by many and will be missed by all.
Bennie is survived by his sister Marilyn Dobson, of Baltimore; 2 brothers: Gary Pinder of, South Carolina, and Edward Anderson Jr, of Easton; his only niece, Sharon Pinder of Easton; 4 nephews including: Troy Copper, Lloyd Copper Jr, Kevin Copper, and Kirk Bowser; and a host of great nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives, and friends.
Besides his parents, Benny is preceded in death by his sister, Dorothy Copper; a brother, Isaac Dobson; and a nephew, Ronald Copper.
