This is so sad. Judge Benson was a great judge with a good sense of humor.
A quick story.
A few years ago, he and I were on our way to a CLE in Park City. We had to ride the gondola together up to the Canyons resort, just the two of us.

Judge Benson gave me my first “clerking” experience as a rising 2L extern.
He made the bus trips from Provo to SLC incredibly worthwhile, taking individual time to work with me–just some kid attending his alma mater. The world lost a great one.

It is difficult to imagine Utah’s federal bench and bar without Judge Dee Benson’s presence and positive influence. Judge Benson served as a shining example of professionalism, kindness and courtesy. We extend our heartfelt condolences to Judge Benson’s family at this time.
