Benjamin (Ben) Franklin Kindle, age 85, of Woodsfield, Ohio passed away April 26, 2018 at Arbor’s at Woodsfield Nursing Home surrounded with loving family.
Ben was born November 24, 1932 at home in Monroe County to the late Homer “Cotton” and Margaret R. (Smith) Kindle.

He retired from working over 20 years ago.  He played fast pitch and slow pitch softball for almost 40 years. He would also umpire some games as well.  People have said he was the best umpire because he wouldn’t cheat for anyone.  He would also give you advice on how to stand at the plate, hold the bat, or anything else.  He also was a big fan of the Monroe Central boys’ baseball and girls’ softball teams.  He has taught many how to pitch.  Ben also enjoyed spending time with his children and grandchildren.

In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by 3 brothers; Jacob, George, and Raymond, 6 sisters; Mary Ethel, Stella, Viola, Goldie, and twin sisters, his ex-wife Carolyn (Jackson) Kindle, a great grandson Zane Dossitt, and a daughter-in-law Donna (Daughtery) Kindle, and a son-in-law Samuel McLean.

Surviving are his children: Robin McLean of Orlando, Florida, Bruce Kindle of Graysville, Ohio, Todd Kindle of Batesville, Ohio, and Camela (Cammie) Kindle of Barnesville, Ohio, a brother Jim (Carolyn) Kindle of Bedford, Ohio, sisters; Bessie (Vernon) Morgan and Betty (Jim) Edgington of Graysville, Ohio, grandchildren: Tara, Tommy, Carrie, Natashia, and Cortney from Ohio, Derek from New Hampshire, Amber from Virginia, Friend (Bub) and April from Florida, great grandchildren: Hanna, Brayden, Emily, Kirbie, Benjamin (Benji), Thomas, Klayton, Noah, Iesha, Eric, Austin, Randy, Junior, Trystan, Talon, Keyarra and a great-great granddaughter: Alayna and many nieces and nephews.

To all the Family of Ben Kindle. Your Father was the greatest and will always be loved and sadly missed. My heart is so very heavy right now as i just lost my x-husband whom was Ben's younger Brother Raymond. I know this is so very hard on everyone right now but with the faith in God and our love for all God will be with them. Ben is in a better place and in no more pain and misery. My condolences to all. Love all. Aunt Donna J. Johnson

To Ben's family. We are so very sorry for your loss. We met Ben at the turkey shoots held at the Bethel VFD years ago. He was always so friendly and so funny. A wonderful sense of humor that is rare any more. He always made a point to speak and tease a bit no matter where we saw him. This world could use a few more like him. I'm sure Ben touched many lives is so many positive ways. May God help you all through this very difficult loss.
