Benito Neris, age 88 years, of Lambertville, MI passed away February 20, 2016 at home surrounded by his family. He was born on June 02, 1927 in San Lorenzo, Puerto Rico to the late Norberto and Valentina (Medina) Neris.
Benito was a tremendously strong man, devoted to the Lord and his family, children and friends. A master domino player and ardent Chicago Cubs fan. His love for gardening was evidenced by his beautifully landscaped home and the homes of the many who sought his help.
He was hard working and tenacious, and would help no matter the situation or his condition. So gentle, kind, and patient to his grand and great-grandchildren, who will always remember not only the delicious food and handcrafted treats he so lovingly prepared for them, but even more so the traditions behind them. Benito will be sorely missed by all those he has touched.
Benito is survived by his devoted wife and companion of 63 years, Ogla Neris; five children, Jeanne (Richard) Bardoulas, David (Donna), Mike (Michele), Eva Martinez, Ricky (Lisa); siblings, Juaquina Rodriguez and Frank; eight grandchildren; five great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.
Preceding him in death are his two sisters, Ignacia Baez and Dominga Garcia; brother, Otilio and his son-in-law, Guillermo Martinez Jr.
