James Benjamin Driskill, 43, a native of Mobile and resident of Grand Bay, AL passed away on Sunday, March 10, 2019 at a local hospital.
Ben studied at MSU Mechanical Engineering. He loved to garden, cooking, and old model cars, and watching old movies in his spare time. He was a wonderful conversationalist and debater. But most importantly he loved his family and he will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
Ben was preceded in death by his father, James Thomas “Tommy” Driskill; grandfather, Johnny “James” Driskill; and his maternal grandparents, J.C. Murphy and Mary Maxine Goss Murphy. He is survived by his mother, Kathy Driskill; his grandmother, Gladys Driskill of Louisiana; siblings, Brandy Diane Driskill, of Louisiana and Penny Marie Driskill, of Arizona; two nephews, Justice Glen Driskill and Gage McMahon, both of Louisiana; as well as other family members and friends.
