Joseph, who loved the Lord would want Glory given first to the King of Kings & Lord of Lords, Jesus Christ, for his salvation found as a young man & passionately lit again as an adult. He loved to be in His Presence during praise & worship at Seacoast Church, always on the front row.
He was a Charleston native, born on March 5, 1977 son of Marvin Wayne Yancy & Louise Mildred Livingston Yancy of N Chas, SC whom showed Ben what God joined together could never be severed by man, this he believed, & lived through his marriage to Kristen Ann (LeVaur) Yancy for 20 years this October 4.

Joseph was predeceased by his sister Amy Melissa Yancy, grandmother Lois Elrod Livingston & grandfather PH Livingston, who was lovingly emulated by Benji. His mother Louise raised him to have strong ties for the entire Livingston family, including special bonds like his Uncle David and Cousins Matt, Harrison, Angie & over 40 aunts, uncles & cousins & his Godson, Jesse Hayden. Benji was liked & loved by them all as he valued hard work, humility, philanthropy & the rewards of living for the Lord. He loved to spoil his family, providing for them was the fuel for his drive.
