Birth: Aug. 14, 1984
Death: Jan. 18, 2012
Paktika, Afghanistan

Spc. Keith D. Benson, 27, of Brockton, Mass., died Jan. 18, in Paktika province, Afghanistan. The circumstances surrounding his death are currently under investigation. He was assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 28th Infantry Regiment, 172nd Infantry Brigade, Grafenwoehr, Germany. Norwood High School principal George Usevich said Benson was "solid student and a real gentleman in school... he was a true son of this School on the Hill." Usevich said Benson found his niche at Norwood High as a member of the school's music program. "He was a member of our concert chorale for four years, and it was something he loved," he said. "He really enjoyed being a part of that group." The Norwood High School Director of Fine Arts Connor-Moen said Benson was as a sweet kid with a great sense of humor who was always willing to help out. "He was definitely a team player. He, within the group, was one of the ones you could always count on. He was always around and was very reliable," Connor-Moen said. "I could see him as a medic, as the type of person you could rely on when you were nervous or scared." He was the beloved son of David Benson of Mansfield and Kathleen (Short) Benson of Norwood; loving brother of Kyle Benson of Norwood; cherished grandson of Anne Benson of Norwood and the late Henry D. Benson, Lillian D. Short, and Col. John J. Short. He is also survived by and will be missed by many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
