A beautiful man! I first met Mr. Benton as he was a substitute principal in our building. Always insightful, he knew what to do. He was a perfect role model for our young men. I am so sorry for your loss. He will be remembered and missed.

I have a lot of great memories of Louie during our Army/CG&S course in Dover, DE. He was a great friend. And you too, Carolyn. May he rest in peace.

I admired Louis Benton for the gentleman that he was. I learned through him what it meant to be a man of selfless duty, as a citizen, a husband and a father. He shared with me in many conversations, his desire to model for his children what it means to be an upstanding citizen and civic activist.
Through Louis, I witnessed a selfless commitment to marriage. I observed him as he drove his wife Carolyn for long distances to her PhD residencies on the east coast. He was always close by...

Mrs. Benton,Taheera, & Louis
Our thoughts and prayers are with your family. He was great man.
