Military Status: Veteran
About Me:
First wife, Jan, passed away early 1999 from Alzheimer's at age 62. I've been very lucky to find another to share my life. Judy and I went to college together; her first husband and I were college fraternity brothers; we were in each others weddings in 1959 and 1960. He passed away a few years ago; and now Judy and I are married. I have five grandkids from age 15 to six months living in Plainfield, IL, near Nashville, TN, and Colorado Springs, CO.

Benn retired from the Army since 1988. Worked in banking in the Chicago area from 1990 to 1994. Stopped working altogether in Aug 1994 to care for spouse.
