He was devoted to his profession, putting in countless hours to ensure everything was done perfectly, only stopping when he was satisfied with the final product. Benny retired earlier this year after many years of beautifying homes.

He loved watching a Celtics or Red Sox game, and especially loved the Patriots. Benny also enjoyed working around his house, taking pride in his ability to improve his home.
