Obituary for Benjamin Oliver Belaustegui

Benjamin Oliver Belaustegui, 17 months, of Hollywood, SC, passed away on Sunday, May 7, 2017.

He was born on Thursday, December 10, 2015, in Charleston, SC, son of Da-Niel Miller Belaustegui and Michael Belaustegui.

Benjamin was “all boy”, and loved to play in the yard, dig in the dirt and play with his dad’s tools. Although he was an independent toddler, he liked to follow his sisters around, and was definitely a Mama’s boy.

His family will remember him as being a happy baby, who brought so much joy to all those in his family. Benjamin is a hero and will live on through his gifts to other children.

He is predeceased by his grandmother, Cynthia Jennings Petty; great-grandparents: Harry Bruce Lippard, Betty Simpson Lippard and Louis Clayton Jennings.

Benjamin will be deeply missed by his loving parents, Michael and Da-Niel and his sisters, Charlie and Reagan, all of Hollywood, SC; grandparents: Robert and Sandra Belaustegui; great-grandmother: Jacqueline Badger Morrison and her husband, Sonny Morrison; and aunts and uncles: Celese Miller, James Petty and Sarah Belaustegui.

The family will receive friends on Friday, May 12, 2017 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM at McAlister-Smith Funeral Home West Ashley Chapel.

A funeral service will be held at 2:00 PM on Saturday, May 13, 2017, at Grace on the Ashley Baptist Church, 2014 Bees Ferry Road, Charleston, SC 29414, with Pastor Greg Smith officiating. Burial will follow in the Live Oak Memorial Gardens Cemetery.
