From the moment Dale joined the Associate Editors of the JBC, he was an interactive and truly valuable member of the team. He drew on his extensive experience in other venues, and his enthusiasm and positive attitude led to excellent suggestions and important contributions to the Journal. He will be sorely missed.

Dr. Benos had such an incredible way of lighting up a room as soon as he entered it. His enthusiasm for the journal and deep affection for his family were an inspiration. He truly cared about people and always took the time to ask how you were doing. His wonderful energy and spirit will be greatly missed.
