Very sad to hear this news..
Benny “The Bull” Benith passed away..
~ A WTC Ram and legend who led his team to the only undefeated 8-0 season ~ # 33 the man & the fullback legend - I recall as a kid.. I always admired his talents on the football field. He was a WTC celebrity!
He was a Jones Beach lifeguard for many years; a talented athlete, architect, designer & builder. I got to know him as a friend during the Gatsby days.
A really down to earth nice guy. He was admired, loved and will be missed by many. Go Rams!
R.I.P. #33
A note from Bill Keenan, his lifelong friend..
It is with Great sadness that earlier today I learned of the passing of Benny Benith, a Longtime and Very Good Friend, one who like all of you had the pleasure of knowing for in many cases 70 plus years. Benny was not only one of Long Islands most talented athletes but even more importantly one of the most genuine and nicest guys that ever existed . I was fortunate to have stayed in touch with Benny since our days growing up on Long Island and we always reminisced of the wonderful times, the wonderful friendships that have lasted to this very day.
Fortunately, it won't be too long before we get together once again and once again can reminiscen of Old Times and Old Friends.
