Bonnie, in my lifetime I have known many, many men; but, only two who when passing left a void that was almost impossible to fill and both were named Louis Benoit Abadie. Benny I will see you soon. Love daddy

I met my best friend Benny at the age of sixteen years old back in the fall of 1983. I had just move down here from Alaska to live with my uncle after my father’s death via helicopter crash during an Army training exercise. I stayed close to my uncle’s house because I did not know anyone. I saw Benny tinkering in his back yard across the way with a back yard full of creations and interesting things. I decided to walk over and meet him and we have been best friends ever since. We were always kindred of spirits with gifts of being able to see and do things using our imagination. He taught me confidence to apply these gifts and to share this with other people. Benny was a very good teacher with everyone. He knew how to teach at different levels with some he would back up and make people think and figure out things for themselves while others he would explain. He was a good judge with this. Benny would regularly call me just to hear about the new projects I had going on as well as to share with his. Benny also helped me through my time of great need during my divorce. He called regularly to see how I was doing and to listen and give good coaching with sound advice. He has always been an inspiration and true friend through good as well as bad times during my life. I figured out why he kept me busy designing and constructing things for him during his last couple of weeks before his passing. He did not want me to focus on his failing condition but to focus on his heart and my memories of him. He was a true friend all the way up to his last breath on this earth. Benny, I will always have fond memories of you every time I walk into my shop and turn on a piece of equipment to design and to build something. I miss you dearly and pray that you are at peace and happy.
Your Best Friend,

Benny was a part of our family. We had many good memories as children growing up together. Family get togethers were good times. I wished I could have known Benny in his later years. From all I have been hearing he was a fine young man. I pray for him and his greiving family. May he rest in peace.

I haven't been knowing you for that long but I known you long enough to say that you were so nice and wanted whats best for your family and friends.I always enjoyed going to the boat to spend time with you and
Mrs.Bonnie.I remember going down the canal by the boat to look for alligators.I remember you joking around with me,Chloe,Cambrie,Brooke,Logan,and Gabby about their being ghosts that would stack pennies in the corners.I always use to feel bad when I would tangle fishing poles up in a bunch of knots and you would have to untangle them. hahaha I miss you Benny!!!R.I.P.WE LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU!!!!!!
