There are so many things I could write about our times spent with David and the Benson clan, the laughs, the tears, the joy of new family additions, so many things come to mind over the years. But the love of true friendship with all of you is what comes to the top of the list. You all know we loved you all like our own, and forever will. Know that we will be there in spirit with all of you as you put David to rest. We will be thinking of you all on the 28th and 29th.
Love to all of you.

Just a great guy! Always a smile and a kind word. I worked with him at the high school and he always did a great job keeping the place up and running. My prayers for your family at this sad time.

David, Jr. I am so very sad and sorry to learn about your dad. Over the many years I have known your dad, we spoke of you often. What a proud father he was to have you in his life. I thought the world of your dad. He was REAL. He was wise and thoughtful and kind. He and I talked about so many interesting topics as we both were getting our work done after dismissal. There wasn’t much he couldn’t discuss. He had a strong sense of self. I admired that about him. And he did the right thing because it was the right thing. I shall treasure my memories of your dad just as you will. Each time I think of Dave Benson, Sr. I will also think of you as well.
