Daniel Lewis Benson, a resident of Vienna, VA, died unexpectedly on November 13, 2018. He was 77 years old.

Dan is survived by his wife Sabra D. (Scotty) Benson, and son James R. Benson. He is predeceased by his son Douglas S. Benson, his mother Ethel H. Benson, his father John R. Benson, and his brother David C. Benson.

Dan was born in Newark, NJ, and attended Glen Ridge High School in Glen Ridge, NJ. He received a B.S. from Lehigh University in Bethlehem, PA and an M.B.A. from the University of Hartford in Hartford, CT. He was a member of Psi Upsilon Fraternity.

Dan and Scotty were married in 1967, and started a family in 1969 in West Hartford, CT. Dan worked in banking and civic affairs in Hartford, CT before relocating the family to Vienna, VA in 1979. Dan’s professional career in the greater Washington, DC area included marketing, governmental affairs and retail positions. He was most recently employed as a cashier at Giant Foods in Oakton, VA.
