Benny R. Cline, Jr.

Age 53, of Orland Park, passed away on December 23, 2022 at his home.

Born July 31, 1969 in Chicago, a son to Benny, SR. and Carolyn (Thomas) Cline. Benny was raised and educated in Chicago. On July 8, 2017 Benny married Heidi Lamkin in Luttrell, Tennessee, she survives. Benny enjoyed watching WWE and was huge sports fan, with many considering him to be the biggest Chicago Cubs fan in all of history. He enjoyed playing catch but more importantly being a commentator during the baseball games which most people found more exciting than the game itself. During his time in Tennessee he served as a deacon at his church. He was known by many to always see the good in people and seem to never know a stranger. Benny loved both Country and Christian music and could always be heard singing. He truly wore his heart on his sleeve and saw other people's needs above his, often times saying, "They need it more than I do." Benny cherished his family and will always be remembered for his love of life and dedicated service to others.

Survivors include his wife Heidi Lamkin of Orland Park, two children: Colleen Cline of Spring Valley, IL and Carrie Cline (Bina) of Homer Glen, IL; three brothers: Michael Cline of Orland Park, Earl (Amy) cline of Rochester, IN and Randy (Jenny) Cline of Kokomo, IN; two sisters: Martha (Jorge) Alvarado of Orland Park and Rebecca (Jeff) O'Shaughnessy of Orland Park; and several nieces, nephews and cousins.
