William Eugene Kazmar

William Eugene “

Billy” Kazmar, 77, passed unexpectedly Oct. 27. 

He loved the same woman for almost 50 years, worked the same job for more than 40 years and raised two crazy kids.



Billy was one to never pass up a good steak, motorcycle ride or race. He was a man of infinite wisdom (measure 10 times only cut once), a welcoming and comforting hug, boisterous laugh and silly sense of humor.



He was a devoted husband to Candy Kazmar, loving father to Kevin Kazmar and Jenny Fredericks and her husband Jason. Dedicated grandfather to Harper Willa and Cole Jackson Fredericks, and loyal friend to many, 

Billy was predeceased by his parents Henry John and Eugenia Kazmar; brothers, Jack and Steve Kazmar; and his son, Kevin Kazmar.



Billy's guiding hand on our shoulder will remain with us forever.

 Samantha A. Benson

Samantha Ashley Benson, 32, passed away Nov. 5.

Samantha lit up every room she walked into with the loudest hello, and always left a room laughing with the loudest goodbye. Sam was many things in her life -- a shoulder to cry on, class clown and the life of the party. She was what any big sister would be, picking on her kid siblings, but protecting them from everyone else. 

A loving and caring daughter and granddaughter, she’d have your back no matter what and she always fought for what she believed in, all while making you laugh hysterically. There will never be another soul like Samantha’s, but that only makes it so that we will always remember her.

She is survived by her mother, Pamela Benson; father, Charles Benson; siblings, Rebecca Benson, Trevor Benson and Alicia Benson. 

She also leaves behind a loving family including her grandparents, aunts and uncles, nephews and her many cousins, who all love and miss her deeply.
