HIGH SCHOOL CLASS '52
Bramwell High School Class '52 classmate Benjy "Benny" Profitt passed away on October 30, 2015 at Fairfax Hospital in Virginia at the age of 81. Benny was known for his many contributions to sports in the late 1940s while attending BHS. He stared in both basketball and football. Many would agree that Benny was perhaps the most talented athlete to ever attend Bramwell High School. He went on to excell in playing football while attending Concord University in Athens, WV. Benny attended Beaver High School in Bluefield, WV his senior year.
He served four years in the Navy and graduated from Concord University. He taught school in both West Virginia and later in Fairfax County, Vriginia until he retired several years ago.
Benny was a friend to everyone who knew him. He never met a stranger. As some would say "a room would light up" when Benny entered. This dear friend will always be remembered. Memories of him will be forever cherished.
"They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old. Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them.
