Ben Gido, 85, of Inverness, FL passed away peacefully with his family surrounding him on December 19, 2019. Ben was born one of 7 children, on July 14, 1934 in the Philippines, to Ricardo and Antonina Gido. Ben married his beloved wife, Rose, in the Philippines, and they immigrated to the United States to live the American Dream. Ben and his family settled in Chicago, IL and was a Mechanical Engineer at a nuclear power plant. After living there for more than 20 years, they relocated to Northern California for another 20 years. Ben loved to fix things, there was nothing that he couldn’t fix or make things better. He also loved to build things, spend time in his garden and take long walks. He and Rose loved to travel around the world, and see exciting places, and spend time with family and friends. They were happily married for 45 years. After his wife passed away, Ben relocated to the sunshine state, Florida, to be closer to family. We love you very much. Ben is survived by his three children, Joy (Marlo) Macaisa, Gil Gido, and Cindy (Mark) Arcenal; grandchildren, Lauren, Sophia, Brooklyn, Skylar, and Hunter; nieces and nephews. And beloved fur-babies Ricky, Kona, Ulysses and Geoffrey. A celebration of Ben's life will be held Saturday, December 28th, at St. Scholastica, 4301 West Homossassa Trail, Lecanto, Florida.
