Rev. Benford Stellmacher Passes Away At The Age Of 63
Stellmacher was affectionately called “Rev. Ben” aka “Benjie” aka “Leader.” He was an All American Civil Rights Activist that spent his Life fighting Racial Injustices.
He was a man with a passion to register thousands of people to Vote, a man who spent countless hours at expunging people’s criminal records, a man who campaigned for people he thought would make a difference, or a People TV Producer for 11 years, but to his sons Benford Dwight Stellmacher Jr. & Christopher Stellmacher,they simply knew him as “Dad!”
Ben Stellmacher served under the tutorship of the late Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. & Rev. Hosea Willams. Rev. Stellmacher patterned himself after Rev. Hosea & proudly strutted his Blue Jean Overalls & red tshirt 365 days a year, as a sign that he was on the Battlefield. Rev. Ben spoke out for the poor & disenfranchised.
Rev. Ben greeted most Civil Rights Activist daily in the streets by shouting out loudly to them, both male & female as “LEADER”!!!
Rest in peace to this iconic leader!
