FERRON-Joshua Chase Benson, age 23, returned to his Heavenly home on Oct. 7, 2008, after a motorcycle accident in Provo, Utah. He was born March 20, 1985, in Price, Utah, to Jacen and Annette Jex Benson.
Chase had a loving, generous heart and cared deeply for his family members and friends. He showed great tenderness for young children, especially toward his sister, Brianne, who adored him.
Chase loved to camp, hunt, and enjoyed the outdoors. He could be a real joker and had a great sense of humor. He delighted in testing his father's strength-pitting him in wrestling matches.
He is survived by his sweetheart, Janeen Nelson, of Duchesne County; his parents, Jacen and Annette Benson; his siblings: Jennifer (John) Steinman, Chelsea (Chase) Behling, Chantelle (Buck) Parrish, Connor Benson, and Brianne Benson; his grandparents: Ralph and Linda Benson, and Patsy Jex; along with numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.
He was preceded in death by his grandfather, Ronald Jex; grandmother, Ruth Richmond; and his great-grandmother, Juanita Averett.
Chase is loved and will be missed greatly by all his family and friends.
Funeral services were held Monday, Oct. 13, 2008, at the Ferron Stake Center. Chase was laid to rest in the Ferron City Cemetery. Services were in the care of Fausett Mortuary.
