    Benoit’s efforts in WWII helped liberate Western Europe. His service for mankind extended after the war by volunteering to help his community. He was a fine example of a good citizen. Now he will live on through his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren as Benoit’s legacy. Condolences to all

    Angela, Ivan, Kevin and Wanda. Hello friends I have just learned of your dads passing. He may not always have been the conversationalist your dear mom was but he always shared his kind words and warm food with me; whether it was 260 Tower St., or 19 Glengarry Rd. So as I did for your mom, so shall I do for your dad. For his contributions to our country, for those in need of food and his raising of my wonderful friends I’ll raise a bowl of hot soup to say “Thank you Benny”. Much Love Steve
