Waldyn Joseph Benbenek (1929-2019) is now in the arms of our Lord. He was a proud and loving husband and father of six. He was preceded in death by his son Greg and two grandchildren. He will be missed by June his wife of 69 years, as well as 5 children, 12 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren.

He was a devout Roman Catholic who loved to sing, laugh and pray. A retired Naval veteran, he took great pride in his Polish heritage and his professional accomplishments. His success is exemplified by his love of his family and faith, a love that his family feels not only for him but also for each other. He enjoyed singing and was often praised for his beautiful voice, and he instilled in his children this same love of music. Always leading by example, he showed that honesty, devotion, dedication and love are enough to lead a successful life. His laughter, love and voice will be missed but will live on in our memories.

A viewing will be held Tuesday, August 27, 2019 from 5-7PM at Metcalf Funeral Directors. A funeral Mass will be held at Sacred Heart Church on Wednesday, August 28, 2019 at 2pm. He will be laid to rest at a later date.

Waldyn Benbenek Sr. (aka. Grandpa for me) will be missed greatly within the lives of those who knew him. He is survived by a large extended family (including me) whom he loved greatly. I know I was prayed for and worried about, along with everyone else, daily. There are three generations in the picture here and you can see how proud he is.

He loved singing, like all good Benbeneks - perhaps this is even where it started), was an active member of his church, and was devoted to his rose garden - the green thumb being a family trait I fear I did not receive.

I regret I didn't get to hear more of your stories Grandpa, please rest in peace.

June,

He was a great man. You were such a faithful wife. May the Lord comfort you in the days to come. Bill and I enjoyed the Sundays we shared sitting behind the two of you.

I have enjoyed and loved attending mass and hearing Wally’s beautiful voice lifted in praise to the Lord. What a gift he was. May he be singing with the Choir of Angels in Heaven today and always.
