David Bendus, formerly of Bethlehem, Pa. and Plymouth, Mass. passed peacefully surrounded by family in Bradenton on January 11, 2011. An avid fisherman, a frustrated golfer, and a truly unselfish friend, he touched the lives of countless people during his short 52 years. His smile and enthusiasm for life inspires an extended family that includes his parents, Francis and Susan in Pennsylvania as well as siblings, nephews and nieces across the country. His compassion, caring and dedication will be remembered by those fortunate to have known him. His laughter, love and wit will be profoundly missed, yet never forgotten.
