Paul Beniston, of Parrish passed away September 2nd 2019 at the age of 73; he was born November 26, 1945 in Leicester United Kingdom.

Paul joined the Royal Air Force when he was 18 years old and served 25 years in the military leaving the service in 1988. He still pursued his love of aircraft by continuing working for various airlines using his expertise to identify cracks and corrosion in a plane before they could cause life threatening consequences. He gained much respect through his conscientiousness and work ethics. Most importantly to him he was a lifelong Leicester City Football Club supporter who delighted in watching them become Premiership Champions in the 2015/16 season. He will be remembered by all as a wonderful, kind man, always happy to help everyone, who endured his illness with bravery especially towards the end and left a lasting memory with everyone he met. He is survived by his loving wife Maureen, and his beloved stepchildren Vicky, her fiancé Matt, and Emma.

He is preceded in death by his parents Harold & Verrill Beniston

We all say goodbye to Paul today, but his memory will stay with us. He was our neighbor for all his and Maureen's time here in Florida. He was a great "mate", always giving and happily taking a good ribbing. He lived a wonderful life, traveled, served and loved his England, and loved the USA too. He exhibited great courage, the "stiff upper lip", in his struggle, and kept his sense of humor. Donna and I are so happy to have stood in witness to Paul and Maureen's renewal of vows at the Don Cesar some years ago. They pledged their love, and celebrated their life together. Paul and Maureen, with tenacity, rekindled the "pub life" here in the states, and we hope to hoist one today at Woody's in honor of a really good man.
