RIP T.R. Benning

Not many people know him as T.R Benning, co-founder of the Benning Construction Company…but if you’ve ever been to a Thrashers game, you’ve seen him, and have probably applauded. Him and his wife Maria, were very popular amongst the Thrashers organization and crowd. During home games, you’d normally see them on the big screen, as part of the “Kiss Cam.” Unfortunately, we’ll never see that again. Mr. Benning passed away today at 89, of unknown reasons. He and his wife(normal season ticket holders) received the 7th man award last season, for obvious reasons. Condolences and condolences to his family during this time of tragedy. RIP Mr. Benning!
