Donna, I didn't find an obituary--just a notice about the graveside service. Here is what it said:
FIRING SQUAD AT BENWELL RITES
The Kearney Air Base furnished a firing squad, color guard and bugler at the funeral Sgt. Sheldon Benwell held at Ft. McPherson yesterday afternoon. The men were under the command of First Lieutenant James E. Bolin.

I also took pics of the headstone at Fort McPherson. If you'd like the pics and/or the copy of the notice in the paper, please e-mail me.
