Obituary

Benjamin Dewayne Dunivan was born on October 15, 1957, in Newport, AR to the late Morris and Inez (Lamb) Dunivan. Benjamin was called to his Heavenly home on Tuesday, December 20, 2022, at his home in Charlotte, AR, surrounded by his loving family. Benjamin was of Christian faith. His faith was evident in his life as Benjamin loved to serve and help others in need. He was a firefighter for the city of Newport, an EMT (both in practice and as an instructor), and an LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse). He enjoyed many hobbies such as hunting and fishing, and he was also a master gardener. Of all of Benjamin’s hobbies and professions, the thing he loved the most was his family. He will always be remembered as a loving husband, son, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, uncle, cousin, and friend. Benjamin will be forever loved and dearly missed by everyone who was blessed to know him.
