MISSOULA — On November 21, 1964, Bennie married Laverne Israel in Manhattan. (They we’re late to their own wedding lol). Mom sadly left us in 1996.
They lived all over Montana as dad was a crane operator building a lot of Montana’s infrastructure, including the Libby Dam and Missoula’s Reserve Street Bridges. He was a proud lifetime member of the Engineers Local 400.
Bennie is survived by his sisters, Donna Davis, and Linda Barbe. His children, Juanita (Marty), Marlen (Bonnie), Bruce (Carrie), and Charlotte (Keith) Brunckhorst, and several grandchildren whom he adored.
Bennie loved to hunt and fish and go for long rides.
A celebration of Bennie’s life will be Saturday, July 14, 2018, at 2 p.m. at Greenough Park.
