Benny Lee Rains, age 63, of Middlesboro, passed away at the Mountainview Nursing Home and Rehabilitation Center in Pineville.

He was born October 20, 1960 in Middlesboro to the late Dan and Thelma Rains.

Benny was quite the chatterbox and loved a good conversation.  He could talk to anyone about anything.  He especially enjoyed hanging out with and talking with his elders, learning so much from their life lessons.
