I will never forget when we all had Thanksgiving over Aunt Lucille and Uncle Tony's. The whole family together. I will always remember your sense of humor. Rest EZ Joe.

It seems too much of a coincidence that I knew a boy at Prospect St School in Terryville named Joey Bengston. I was born in 1946 also. I believe it was 4th grade. If it is the same boy , I remember him well. I am so sorry for your loss.

I worked (and I use the term loosely) with Joe at Associated Spring Barnes Group for several years. Joe always had a way of making a "Bad day" at work a "Good day". Good friends are hard to find, harder to leave, & impossible to forget. Rest in Peace my old friend...

May the memories of all the people who new and love “Joe Joe or Mr “B” (as some of us fondly called Joe on B-upper) help you through this difficult time.

What I remember is that Mr B was such a quiet respectful man who loved his HOT COFFEE.

He has left is footprint in my heart and I am certain in many staff and fellows at DVA.

I am also thankful for his service to our country to help keep this nation free.

His light will shine on in our hearts.
My prayers are with you Annette and your family.
