Remembering Tex Benton

Long-time Rockbridge Democrat Elihue P. Benton, better known as Tex, passed away April 17 after a long illness.

A gathering in Tex’s memory will be held on the Mezzanine of the Virginia Horse Center, 487 Maury River Road, from 5 to 7 p.m. on Friday, April 28. There will no formal service, but anyone wishing to speak may do so. Our condolences to his beloved wife, Joyce.

Tex and Joyce always volunteered to staff the Democratic party booth on the Fourth of July at VMI and at the Community Festival in downtown Lexington in August. They regularly joined the Democratic contingent in the Buena Vista Labor Day parade. He will be missed.
