The communities of Mudgee and Lithgow are mourning the loss of a champion Benton William Harris who passed away on Sunday November 29.
Benton was the life of many parties and always the mate to have around. He always had a zest for life and would always be around to offer a lending hand if required or to give you the shirt off his back if you needed it.
He had met his best friend and the love of his life Tayla Pennell and between them they had Oaklyn Harris, the apple of his eye. He was a doting and loving father and partner. He had many friends Australia-wide and his love of cars bikes anything mechanical had him with a close group of like minded friends.
Benton will be dearly missed by his family and they would like to thank all of his friends and work colleagues for the outpouring of support they are receiving at this difficult time.
A funeral for Benton will be held today at the Lithgow Civic Ballroom at 11am with all of Benton's friends and colleagues invited to celebrate his life.
