Rob Benzon was a lot of things to a lot of people, but what he did most was to remind people that every day is a precious gift. He took great pleasure in making others smile. His infectious laugh and reassuring presence, along with his willingness to help others, is missed every day. Never a wealthy person, Rob gave generously with his money, his time, and his love. Our work is in memory of him.

Rob Benzon

On Saturday, June 5, 1999, the San Diego Community lost one of its greatest friends, Rob Benzon. This vibrant and inspirational 31-year-old drowned in a sudden ocean rip-current while on vacation in Acapulco with many of the current board members. His sudden death was devastating to all those who knew him.
