In Memoriam: Keith Benjamin

by James G. Beldock on July 30, 2008

I am pro­found­ly sad­dened to re­port the pass­ing of friend and col­league, Keith Benjamin, whom we lost yes­ter­day at the far-too-young age of 49. While Keith will un­doubt­ed­ly be re­mem­bered for the in­ef­fa­ble cre­ativ­i­ty which per­me­at­ed his life, he will no doubt al­so be re­mem­bered even more for his undy­ing de­vo­tion to his fam­i­ly. I re­mem­ber fond­ly run­ning in­to the Benjamins as they were out for a walk in Cow Hollow (San Francisco) per­haps five months ago. There was noth­ing par­tic­u­lar­ly spe­cial about the encounter—just two fam­i­lies out en­joy­ing the day who hap­pened to run in­to each oth­er. But for all the pre­sen­ta­tions I’ve given to Keith’s firm and the meet­ings I’ve par­tic­i­pat­ed in with him, what I will re­mem­ber most fond­ly is the im­age of Keith out with his fam­i­ly on a Sunday af­ter­noon en­joy­ing the ear­ly spring weath­er. Keith, we will miss you.

Keith E. Benjamin
