Obituary: Caleb R. Duggan (Benton), 22


Caleb R. Duggan (Benton) was born February 10, 2000 and died January 8, 2023.

He is loved deeply and missed greatly by his parents, Dr. Thomas and Kathleen Benton; his sister, Erin (Lawrence) Ludwig and brothers, John (Heather), Paul (Anna), and Joshua; 3 nieces and 4 nephews; his maternal grandmother; and many aunts, uncles, and extended family members. Caleb was a faithful platelet donor for over 6 years, and he donated his bone marrow to a patient who desperately needed it two years ago.

Caleb’s death was a death of despair. May it serve as a reminder to care for one another deeply, seek and accept help, and check in with friends and family often…

A Memorial service will be held Saturday, January 14, 2023, at 5:30 p.m. at Williams-Thomas Westarea Funeral Home, 823 NW 143rd St. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in Caleb’s memory to Life South Community Blood Center, 4039 Newberry Rd, Gainesville, FL 32607, or Intact America. Please visit his memorial page at www.williamsthomasfuneralhome.com
