Bernie Benton, age 93, passed from this earth to our Heavenly Father on Saturday, September 29, 2012 at Hospice Home Care in Little Rock, Arkansas.

Bernie’s greatest love was his farm and fishing.  He could tell some stories about both anytime he could get anyone to listen.  He was also a WW II veteran, of which he was very proud.  Dad, we will miss you!
