Memorial for John Paul Benbow

It is with a heavy heart that we share the news of John Paul's passing on Saturday, May 26th at 8:40 p.m.

John gave us one week of life after his accident (an accident that he should have never survived in the first place) to talk and laugh and pray despite his excruciating pain. During that time he expressed his deep love for his family, his coworkers, and his friends. And while we are filled with great sorrow, we know that the best way to honor his life is to hold each other close through this difficult time. And maybe attempt a laugh or two as John would have done.

We cannot express the love and support we have felt throughout this past week. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you. Your faith and kindness have made all of the difference.

If you would like to join us, please set aside this Saturday morning as we will be coming together in Roseville, CA to celebrate John's life. We will post more details of the times and location at a later time.

From the bottom of our hearts,
Thank you

The Benbows
