In Memory

Bob Benesh

The passing of Bob Benesh‚Äč to an apparent heart attack. Bob was a great friend, father-in-law, grandfather and an overall wonderful man. He was as kind a person as I have ever met and never heard him say a bad word about anyone. His loss was sudden, but I take solace that his suffering is over. At the time of his death he was still able to live alone, b...ut as his health deteriorated I am sure some sort of supervised living arrangements would have had to happen soon. I remember years ago Bob making it clear that he was not interested in living a "home" of some sort. So we are sad to lose Bob, but glad he exited life on his own terms with his independence and dignity in tact. I am sure he is in a better place, entertaining those around him with his sly grin and easy manner. He will be missed. A copy of the obituary and the funeral home information follows so that anyone who wants to pay their respects can do so.

Bob Allen Benesh, 74, of Lake Charles, passed away Monday, January 2, 2017, in Ames.
