BENTON — Paul Douglas Hughes, 49, passed away Sunday, Feb. 14, 2021. He was born May 5, 1971, in Hot Springs to William and Diana Hughes.

Paul had many friends in Jonesboro, Benton and Hot Springs. It seems appropriate that his passing was on Valentine’s Day as most who knew him describe him as a “real sweetheart.”

He loved his family and friends.

Funeral services will be 11 a.m. Saturday at Smith-Benton Funeral Home, 322 N. Market St., in Benton. Visitation will be one hour prior to service.
