Robert (Bob) Lee Benbow, 81, of Marion, passed away peacefully at his home on March 31, 2021, after battling a valiant fight against Alzheimer’s disease. His loving wife, Gail, was by his side.
Born on December 17, 1939, Bob was the son of the late Robert and Violet Benbow. He was the second of their four children: Linda, Bob, Bill, and Jim. Bob attended Roll High School in Blackford County, where he played basketball and baseball and was on the track team. He was a standout at all, but his prolific scoring in basketball earned him a brick at the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame.
