My Deepest Sympathy to all the Benoit family. I was shocked and saddened to hear of Ricks passing. Rick was certainly a unique individual who will be missed by all who had the opportunity and pleasure of knowing him. I have many fond and entertaining memories of Rick during our teenage years beating the streets around Stephenville. What a laugh we use to have! My thoughts and prayers are with you. Rest In Peace my friend.
