"Benjamin Waynesboro remembered by friends for living life to fullest",
Akron Beacon Journal, 18 Dec 2004.
Benjamin T. "Benji" Waynesboro, 55, of Olde 8 Road in Boston Heights, wonderful husband, father, friend, broth er, and son, fought a fear less battle with cancer for the last year. He died Tuesday, Dec. 14, 2004.
Ben gave us the cour age to go on day after day, always with a smile on his face. The doctors and nurses at the Cleveland Clinic would find him dancing in his room. Benjamin loved his bit of heaven in Boston Heights and took great joy in mowing and tending his yard. He loved nature and was given more than a few parking tickets for stopping to photograph something he thought was beautiful. Ben took his work to heart (as he did everything) and always gave his absolute best. He mentored so many people, always reaching behind to pull someone up. Ben loved his two girls, Lisa and Hannah. He always said, and made sure we knew, we were in his heart. In Ben's short 55 years he touched so many and leaves so many people blessed to have known him. Benjamin lived his life with style, dignity, and class. There will never be an other man like him.
He was preceded in death by his father, Theodore Waynesboro, and is survived by his wife, Lisa (nee Maupin) Waynesboro; daughter, Hannah Waynesboro; brother, Howard (Linda Melby) Waynesboro; sisters, Elizabeth (Kirk) Rattray and Kathy (Sean Carey) Waynesboro; niece and nephews, Morgan and Carson Rattray, and Sean Carey; mother, Kathryn Waynesboro; sister-in-law, Toni Lattur; brother-in-law, Steve Maupin; father-in-law, Charlie (Judy) Maupin; mother-in-law, Louise (Richard) Thacker; special friends, Dan and Elizabeth Hale.
The family suggests that memorial contributions be made to the Benjamin Waynesboro Benevolent Fund, c/o Key Bank. Services were held Saturday, Dec. 18 2004, at Johnson-Romito, Hudson, Ohio. Burial at Fairview Cemetery in Boston Heights, Ohio.
