At this auctions event, we are honored to offer selected antiques items from provenance Joseph E. Bennell (1927-July 7, 2019) Cuyahoga Falls, OH. He enlisted in the U.S. Army, served in World War II, returned home, and graduated from Ohio Wesleyan University. He went on to receive a Master's in Education from Ohio State University (Go Buckeyes) and Indiana University. He married Carol A. Wilhite on November 23, 1952, who was dead in 1988, after 36 years of marriage. After working at Kent State University for several years, he relocated his family to Springfield, Virginia, where he finished his career as the Audio Visual Coordinator for Southern Virginia Community College. He retired in 1988, and returned to Dover Delaware. He was very active in several churches and ministries over the years, including Delaware Bible Church and Centralia Presbyterian Church. Nothing made him happier than spending time with friends and sharing his wealth of knowledge, many stories of travel throughout the world and the time he spent in the service.
Another provenance, David Garrison (July 18, 1948-) Morehead City, NC. He joined the Air Force in July 1968. He did his basic training in San Antonio, Texas, and then went to technical school at Chanute Air Force Base in Illinois. In 1971, he married the love of his life, Patty Madsen. In 1984, they moved to Bethany beach Deleware where he resided for the rest of his life. David obtained an Associate's Degree through the Community College of the Air Force. During his career in the Air Force, he achieved the rank of Chief Master Sergeant. He retired from the Air Force in 1993 after 26 years of service. Not one to slow down, he started a new career as a contractor at FAA, then Tinker Air Force Base. His final retirement was in January of 2016.
