Benjamin Robert BogleMiami, FL, 1975 - 2022
Benjamin Robert Bogle passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on Saturday, May 7, 2022. He is preceded in death by his grandparents, Rev. Dr. Ben and Maxine Hines, Bob and Marilyn Bogle; and his brother-in-law, Joe Stinnett, Jr.
Ben was born in Branson, Mo., on December 14, 1975, and in his early years, loved to tell friends he was born at Silver Dollar City. But at six weeks old, his family moved to Bentonville, Ark., where he grew up in a small-town atmosphere. A place where, at the age of six, he could get off the school bus halfway home so he could walk the rest of the way and explore the world. However, that soon came to an end when he was recognized and reported to his mother.
After graduating from the University of Arkansas, Ben moved to Ft. Walton Beach, Fla., for his first job and a chance to ride out his first hurricane. On a trip between Bentonville and Florida, he stopped at a friend's home, where he was introduced to Sarah Stinnett, who quickly became the love of his life. After a move to Jacksonville, Fla., for Sarah's residency, they settled in Collierville, Tenn., but the beaches of Florida kept calling. They moved on to Destin with their very spoiled and much-loved dog, Sookie, who loved to ride on their golf cart perched on Ben's lap. Ben loved fishing, especially deep-sea fishing, and living in Destin gave him many excuses to go. He and Sarah enjoyed the beaches and could often be found there. Traveling was a passion and they loved planning trips. On special occasions, they would surprise each other with an unknown destination and new adventures.
He is survived by his wife, Dr. Sarah Bogle of Destin, Fla.; father, David (Tina) Bogle; mother, Susan (Pat) Kennedy; sister, Erin (Jason) Easley; and aunts and uncles, David (Susan) Hines of Edmond, Okla., Becky (Bob) Alexander, Ann (Jim) McKenzie; parents-in-law, Joe and Mary Stinnett of Collierville, Tenn.; sister-in-law, Ping Stinnett of Collierville, Tenn.; Nieces and Nephews, Lukas Easley of Gravette, Brittney Easley of Fayetteville, Halie (Hunter) Deaton of Gravette, and Lydia Stinnett of Collierville, Tenn.
A visitation will be held 10 a.m. – 11 a.m. Tuesday May 17, 2022, with funeral service beginning at 11 a.m. at First United Methodist Church in Bentonville, Ark. A private family burial will take place at Bentonville Cemetery, under the direction of Nelson-Berna Funeral Home, Rogers.
