Pieterson, Benjamin "Benny P"

July 14th, 2017

A newly arrived resident of Gatineau, Quebec, primarily from London and formerly of Chatham, Benny P passed away at his residence on Friday, July 14th, 2017 at the age of 40. Born in Windsor, “Furr-daddy” of the late Begbie, treasured son of the late Theresa Sterling and George Murmann, beloved brother of Tena Pieterson, the late Joseph LaMarsh, late Jackie LaMarsh and former brother-in-law Louis Bailey. Survived by his Aunt Rita, cousins Jess, Tina, Dave, Marcus and many more aunts, uncles and cousins. He will be missed by so many. Benny P will also be truly missed by his extended family, including “adopted” sisters Michelle, Lacy and Rhonda. Celebrated by his brothers, the Steve’s, the Mike’s, the Morton’s, Ben, Barker and so, so many more that we cannot list them all. His infectious smile and swagger brightened up every room he entered. Family and Friends will gather for visitation at WESTVIEW FUNERAL CHAPEL, 709 Wonderland Road North, London, on Saturday, July 22, 2017 from 3:00–5:00 p.m., followed by a “Revelry for Benny” at the Cherryhill Centre, 1508-190 Cherryhill Circle, London, from 6:00-9:00 p.m. (extra parking behind 201 Westfield). No drinking “inside” the facility. Cremation to follow with a family and friends tribute at a later date. Donations, instead of flowers, are appreciated.
