Thomas Benderman, 69, of Pensacola, FL passed away Sunday, November 28, 2010. Tom Benderman was born to Herman and Camilla Benderman on March 18, 1941 in Detroit, MI. He had a long career with Mercantile Stores, Inc. before retiring to spend time with his family in Pensacola, FL. Although Tom loved yard work and gardening, what brought him the most joy was fishing with his grandsons Nick and Dane, and his best friend Billy. In addition to being a wonderful father, Tom demonstrated the perfect example of grandfatherly love. He had a keen understanding of youth and Tom's grandchildren flourished through their connection with and love for him. Even though Tom will be dearly missed, his lessons of kindness and generosity will continue on through those he touched. Tom is preceded in death by his mother and father, Camilla and Herman Benderman and his brother, William Benderman. Tom is survived by his son, Andre Benderman; daughters, Johnnie Zimmerman and Leslie Mountain; 7 grandchildren, Nick, Dane, Jorge, Alex, Ashley, Elissa and Jacob, and many nieces and nephews. Tom is also survived by his dear friends, Freda Benderman, Billy and Mary Davis, Rob, Lanny and Karin Zimmerman and Janette Keay. Visitation will be held 10-11:30am Friday, December 3, 2010 at Harper-Morris Memorial Chapel. The family would like to express their sincerest appreciation to Covenant Hospice. HARPER-MORRIS MEMORIAL CHAPEL is in charge of arrangements.
