After living an energetic life filled with family, friends, music and dancing, Robert Benner passed away surrounded by family on February 22, 2021. Born in Ridgeway in 1934, Robert was proud and passionate about the history of his small town. We're sure he's being reunited with his brother Harold and that together they are seeking out "spontaneous sociability". Robert's children, Jeff, Sue and Scott would like to thank Dr. Spencer's team and the fantastic staff at St. Catharines hospital. A private family service will be held at a later date. Please visit Robert's memorial webpage at to share photos and memories.

Have many fond memories of badminton club and all the other events Bob was involved in. Still remember him installing our heating system at the house on Southmill as well. Great guy and will surely be missed in Ridgeway!

Jeff, Sue, and Scott, I am so sorry for your loss. You and your families are in my thoughts and prayers during this time of sadness.
Robert touched so many lives in a positive way. He had a wonderful sense of humor and a positive outlook on life. When I was in my 30's he taught me to ski. He would take the time from his busy day to stop by my dry cleaners (Viking Dry Cleaners) just to say hello and brighten my day. I remember how much he loved ballroom dancing and music. He always had a smile on his face and I never saw him express anger. No matter what Robert did, he did it with passion. He cherished his children and was extremely proud of his grandchildren. Robert Benner lived his life to the fullest.
R.I.P. Robert
