New Middletown

New Middletown - Chester Benny Pinciaro, 71 of New Middletown, Ohio, passed September 30, 2023 after years of battling Alzheimer’s and more recently being diagnosed with an advanced cancer. In his final days, he was blessed to have been cared for by the wonderful staff at the Hospice of the Valley Hospice House.

Benny was born October 17, 1951 in Wichita Falls, TX and was a son to the late Antonio Tito "Tony" and Leona Williams Pinciaro. He attended both Struthers High School in Ohio and Hirschi High School in Wichita Falls, TX and served his country in the United States Army and the National Guard. He met the love of his life, the former Karen Patton Fookes, and the two took vows on November 4, 1979.

Ben was the owner of Boardman Auction Gallery in Leetonia, OH where he worked as an Auctioneer for many years. Prior to becoming an auctioneer, he was in the business of buying and selling furniture and attended many auctions. Through the years, he became close to many others that were also involved in the business. Not only were they great friends, many were considered family.

His favorite pastime was golf. Many years ago, he and fellow golfers formed the Blue Max Golf Club. Along the way, he brought home a multitude of tournament trophies. In his later years, he was a member of East Palestine Country Club where he found some of his best friends.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by three sons, Kelly (Michele) Fookes of Poland, OH, Robert (Gwenda) Fookes of New Springfield, OH, Jarrod Gifford of Los Angeles, CA; daughter, Tiffany (James) Ladesic, of New Middletown, OH; ten grandchildren and eleven great-grandchildren; stepmother, Patricia; and siblings, Tony, Jennifer, and Frank.
