man it was impossible not to like, sadly, Benny Taglienti left us today…

That familiar face behind Jokers’ counter, or whizzing by on one of his beloved motorbikes was always a happy one.

Even when he was diagnosed with Motor Neuron disease in August 2017, the man held on to his trademark smile. And was soon whizzing by on his electric wheelchair.

You can explore Benny’s history here. In the meantime, here’s the obituary…
