Benjamin Todd Clough Jr., 11, Attalla, was born on the eve of Easter; Sunday, April 22, 2000. On Sunday, June 5, 2011, he rushed into the open arms of Jesus.
Benjamin was preceded in death by his grandfather, Don Clough. He leaves to celebrate his victory, parents, Todd and Jenny Clough; sister and best friend, Taylor Clough; brother, Adam Clough; grandparents, Milton and Janice Nelson, Judy Clough Cornelius and Don Cornelius, Reba and Jerry Young; many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends from all over the world.
Ben received Christ and was baptized as a member of Whorton Bend Baptist Church. One of his greatest pleasures was worshiping with his church family and sitting on the front pew every Sunday morning with friend and his pastor, Joey Jones. Ben loved Alabama football, hunting and most of all countless hours of laughing, playing and living life to its fullest with his big sister, Taylor. "They were the perfect match" in so many ways.
