Sertoman of the Day: Today we are honored to have Bill Benton return to the stage to give us an update on his life and where it is headed with the great job he still has. Bill reserved this date because he turns 90 in a couple days and couldn’t wait to be front and center again. (Maybe he will be the next President ???)
Bill Benton (Mr. Tooth Pick) is a Denver native – entering the scene Sunday, October 14, 1928 during the depression, coming in at 7lbs 1 oz. He went through Mitchell Elementary, Cole Jr. High and Graduated from Manual High School, all in Denver – joined the Navy in 1946 and served for 3 years, 2 months as a photographer, and was stationed on Guam for about 21 months and returned to Denver and graduated from the University of Denver in 1954 on the GI Bill. He then went to work for Bear Frame and Axle.
Bill married Betty in 1954 (who passed away in 1995, the day after Christmas). Daughter Cindy is retired from Metro West Fire, and a son is flying a Corp. Jet for the Gates family. Bill also has a granddaughter that is 26 and a snowboarder ski bum. She moved to the mountains to be close to the slopes.
Bill has peddled cars for Burt Chevy since 1964 but the dealer is been sold (to Elway) so every day Bill goes to work, he looks at the sign out front. He claims to have sold over 23,000 cars and still going. He was asked if he held the title of being the longest employee at Burt but he isn’t, he is real close though. Burt is now owned by John Elway
Bill has had a couple ‘significant other’s’ but he is now back on the open market. Bill was brought into Sertoma by Bill Anderson in 1976, back in the days when we met at Wyatt’s Cafeteria. He’s been a consistent and faithful doer of good deeds ever since. Listen to Bill Benton.mp3
