“Hooch as he was affectionately called by family and friends, Lance was educated in the public schools of Richland County.  In his spare time, Lance enjoyed listening to music and watching television.

He was a loving son, brother, uncle nephew, and friend.  Though he is no longer physically with us, his loving and kind spirit will forever live in the hearts and lives of all those who loved and knew him.

Lance was preceded in death by his brother, Jermaine English; and his grandparents, John and Irene English.

Those who are left to cherish fond and precious memoires are his parents, James and Lizzie Benbow; and his brother, James Benbow, Jr., all of Columbia, South Carolina; a host of nephews, nieces,  uncles, aunts, and other loving relatives and dear friends, all of whom join the family in sharing the grief caused by his departure.
