Commemorating Benito Barron

Benito Smiling
Benito smiling along brick wall.

On Friday, November 27th we lost a precious soul and dear participant to our program. Benito was a regular participant of Lake City Seniors for years and was an instrumental figure in the Latinx group.  He participated in various classes such as Bingo and Momentia events, volunteered his time to drive other participants to the Center, and was always giving out hugs and love to friends. He will be greatly missed by all and we were lucky to have him in our lives. Included are words from our staff.

Benito, thank you for having been here with us, sharing yourself with us. You left memories and laughter in our hearts. You will always be present and we will never forget a phrase that is so very yours, ” The sun is within you”. Rest in peace!!! -Martha

Benito was the type of person who consistently reminded me of why I do the work that I do. His effervescent personality and big heart brought joy into my life, and into the lives of others. Benito will be greatly missed by all of those who knew him, but will live on through our memories of him. He brought the feeling of community to our center and our lives. Rest in power, our dear friend. –Vedrana

We lost one of the good ones. I remember the day he first walked into our senior center.  He was angry and upset about something and he sought some relief. He always said he was lucky to find our program, but I often wonder if we were lucky he found us. He was both complex and simple, which is why he was so compassionate. He could talk with anyone and always offered a smile or support. After talking with Benito, I always had a smile on my face. He was open about his early struggles with addiction and how he overcame them to find peace and happiness.  This difficult journey served him well in his later years as he provided so boundless empathy, wisdom and support to others who were suffering. Rest in power Benito. – Akira

 

Benito’s hugs could make the most stressful days lighter and his smile was infectious. I always looked forward to seeing him, having a chat and listening to his wisdom; he had so much of it to share. He will be remembered for his kindness, laughter, and the light he carried inside of him. Thank you for showing it to us. –Emily

Benito always had something to give:  Christmas chocolate, tamales, a box of zucchinis from the trunk of his car, a hug. He had a radiant personality that was sorely needed in an all too cloudy world. He’ll be deeply missed by anyone and everyone who had the chance to know him. –Darcy

 

Benito, you brightened up our lives with you light, you playfulness, and always, you kindness. I learned so much about generosity of spirit from you. Thank you for all the time and energy you shared with us. You are deeply missed. –Claudine

Lunch will be served at the same time from 12:30-1:30pm on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. We hope to see you there!

LGBTQ2 Community Conversation Meet-Up & Pride Month Film Series

Do you have questions about what the different letters stand for in LGBTQ2? Are you curious about what it actually means when someone is transgender and what to say when you aren’t sure what their gender is? Do you wonder how it can be that some people know these things about themselves when they are as young as 3 years old and some people do not come out until they are in their 60’s?

We want to create a space where we can all learn together and be ourselves. Each of us is touched by things in different ways. As lifelong learners, when we open up to our diversity, life just keeps getting more interesting! Watch the movies in the series that look interesting to you and then come to our community conversation on Monday, June 25th from 1-2pm.
