Wilma and family, Frank was a part, a fixture of Belton. It will seem strange for him not to be there. However he will always be a part of Belton and of those who knew him. God be with. Sue & Jerry Posch (Lake Lotawana).
You are in my thoughts and prayers. Frank and George worked together at RGAFB for Maytay refueling airplanes when we were first married in 1961. We always thought very highly of him. He will be missed.
It has been several years since I had the opportunity to spend time with Frank but the memories that remain with me are the years we were scuba diving together. It was a great group of guys and the time we spent together was great. Wilma my thoughts are with you in your and the family's loss.
Frank was always a chipper type of person, business first, then talk about whatever came up. He will be sorely missed by everyone that came by the store. Wilma, you're a sweet woman, one we can all call "MOM". Frank was blessed to have someone like you to share life with, a void has been created, so fill it with lots of good times and memories. BTW this is David the meatcutter at YOUR Price Chopper.
I went to school with Franks son, Frankie. I got to know his parents when I became of age to go to the store. Frank was always such a pleasant person and his wife Wilma was always so nice to me and always spoke to me years later whenever I would run into her at the grocery store or some where in Belton. With loosing my mom and one of my brothers just two months ago I know the loss and pain that you are feeling. My thoughts and prayers are with the family during this very difficult time.
Wilma and family, please accept our heartfelt condolences and sympathy. Frank was a wonderful person and will be sorely missed. Benjamin's was an icon of Belton - we both enjoyed coming in and visiting, especially in winter when Frank had the stove going. He created such a wonderful atmosphere in that place. Vaya con Dios. Debbie and Walt Ferguson
My family has known the Benjamins my entire life. As an adult I always looked forward to going to the store early on a Saturday morning and getting the fattest worms you could buy, petting the dog and sharing stories with Frank. He would also tell me stories of when my dad was young. Frank will be missed. God bless the Benjamin family.
Wilma & Family, I am so sorry for your loss. We moved to Belton in 1965 and I met Wilma soon after when I lived in Lacy Estates. My name was Wanda Jacobs then. The boys may have gone to school with Alan (graduated 1973); Terry Ann (1975) or Curtis (1978) Jacobs. I married Dick Kiefer 1978 and he was a friend of Frank's. He made the Arkansas toothpick Frank hung on his wall. Dick died 12/2005. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Wanda Kiefer
I am going to miss the talks Frank and I would have when I would come into the store. He seemed to be so understanding when it came to the VA. I could have gone elsewhere but I really enjoyed the hospitality Frank and Wilma would show. I wish I could have known you all better. You will be missed!!. My condolences are with you Wilma and with all of your family. Sincerely, Barry Newcomer 214 N. Chestnut Belton.
We knew the Benjamins in the 60s when living in Belton. I was a member of the Baleens. Frank was a grand person. I still remember him well. Our condolences. Bobbie & Joe Jordan (Parkville, MO)
We just wanted to let you know how sorry we are for your loss. As long as we can remember the store has always been there. Daddy bought whatever beer he drank from Frank. God bless everyone. Craig, Jim, Linda Blum Medlin
Wilma & Family, We are sorry to hear about your loss. He will be missed. Time will heal. Lucille & Jerry
