Douglas "Doug" Calvin Benfield, 69 of Mechanicsville, MD passed unexpectedly due to injuries sustained in a vehicle accident on Tuesday, November 17, 2020.

He was born on April 22, 1951 in Caudwell County, NC to the late Doyle Benfield and Ruby (Lackey) Benfield. He was one of six children.

Doug was a hard-working man with a gift for turning wrenches and fixing even the most difficult engine. He was born to be a mechanic and never worried about a little grease on his hands. The callouses came from an honest day's work and determination.

With a smile that was a guarantee he was up to no good and a contagious laugh, Doug was the life of the party. He made friends easily and was generous. He would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. Doug found great joy riding his Harley and cruising the roads on a beautiful day. His greatest joy was being "Pop-Pops" to his grandson, Douglas Scott Benfield. They spent many days together growing an unbreakable bond.

Doug is survived by his son, Jeffrey Benfield of Woodbridge, VA and his grandson, Douglas Scott Benfield of Woodbridge, VA. He was preceded in death by his parents, daughter-in-law, Terri Benfield and all of his siblings, Roger, Randy, Clay, Betty and Peggy.

A great man was lost, but his memory will remain in the heart of his loved ones.

At this time, all services are postponed due to Covid-19 protocol and will be scheduled for a later time.
