May 29, 2019 – Calgary, Alberta
Bill Benstead beloved husband of Rose, of Calgary Alberta, passed away on Wednesday, May, 29, 2019 at the age of 64 years.
Having spent 40 years in the casino industry Bill touched a lot of lives. He spent many years at the Stampede Casino and most recently Grey Eagle Casino as a casino manager.
Throughout his gaming career he had the opportunity to train many of Calgary’s gaming staff. Helping others succeed in the gaming industry was his goal and gave him a sense of accomplishment. His giving spirit, kind and caring nature, along with his quick wit and constant sense of humour will be forever missed.
Besides his loving wife Rose, Bill is survived by his son Bryce; daughter Kasey; four grandchildren; mother Marion; brother Frank (Rose Ann); sisters, Rosanne (Detlef), Marion (Rex) and Christine (Ron); numerous nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews. Bill was predeceased by his father Frank.
Bill’s final wish was that you donate time or make a memorial tribute to the charity of your choice; and that you hug someone you love today.
A private family service will be held at a later date. Condolences may be forwarded through www.McInnisandHolloway.com
