Joe Benenati was a true man through and through. He could be tough when needed but otherwise was a gentle giant. I admired his fairness and believing everyone deserved a second chance, I know I did, thanks Sheriff! A few more Joe Benenati's in this county and things would be much better. He was and I hope I am, proof hard work and playing by the rules is the way to live. Rest well Joe.

My Uncle Joe will be greatly missed. I grew up calling him "Uncle Joe Big Hands" (he was my grandfather's brother). He was a Rotarian and humanitarian and defintely a role model for anyone who ever met him. God Bless Uncle Joe Big Hands.
