Beloved Music Teacher Dies in Car Crash

PASCAGOULA, Miss. (WPMI) A Pascagoula musician and music teacher has died following a fatal car accident on I-10 in Mississippi Sunday. 

Kevin Benefield was struck by Donald Lockhart after he lost control of his truck. 

Local 15s Kelly Foster knew Benefield very well. 

Kevin Benefield was a kind-hearted man who had a voice of an angel. I was privileged to have known Kevin and his family since I was a little girl. He sang in my wedding and taught me guitar. He touched so many lives an educator teaching in Pascagoula, Moss Point, Diberville and even here in Mobile at Little Flower, said Kelly. 

For the past three years Kevin served as the music instructor and choir director at Resurrection Catholic School where his wife, Elizabeth, is the elementary school principal. 

Counselors will visit both RCS campuses on Monday for students
