Benjamin Allen Dotson

Tonight as you gaze at the nighttime sky, you will notice that God has blessed us with a bright new star named Benjamin Allen Dotson, who was born premature at just 22 weeks and five days on Friday, September 08, 2017 in Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown.

Benjamin blessed the lives of his parents, Kevin Andrew Dotson and Lura “Brianne” Bean Dotson of Jane Lew, WV the minute they saw his sweet little face during their first ultrasound. With just one look at this beautiful new life with a strong beating heart, they fell in love and formed an everlasting bond with this precious soul.

Shortly after he made his grand entrance into the world, God changed his plans for Benjamin, so he sent his most majestic angels to carry him home on their wings, to meet the family members who were waiting to greet him in Heaven: paternal great grandfather, Richard “Alan” Dotson; paternal great grandfather, Anthony Daro; maternal great grandfather, Aubrey Murphy; and cousin, Michael Lehman.

At just 1 lb. 2 ounces and 12 inches long, he touched the hearts and lives of family and friends who were looking forward to welcoming him into their lives: paternal grandfather, Craig Dotson of Ashland, OH; paternal grandmother, Kimberly Burnside and step grandfather, Danny Burnside of Jane Lew; maternal grandparents: Melissa Bean of Jane Lew, and Roger Bean of Lost Creek, WV; paternal great grandmother, Donna Hubbert of MI; paternal great grandmother, Diane Thornton of OH; maternal great grandmothers: Helen Jenkins of Jane Lew; maternal great grandparents: Debra and Bernard Posey of Jane Lew; and several aunts, uncles, and cousins.

His family will have a private Celebration of Life Service, and expressions of sympathy may be sent directly to Kevin and Brianne Dotson 2923 Jesse Run Rosd, Jane Lew, WV 26378.

The Pat Boyle Funeral Home and Cremation Service at 144 Hackers Creek Road in Jane Lew is honored and privileged to serve the family of Benjamin Allen Dotson.
