    Dr. Bento was such a wonderful person to work with. Although a short time I worked with Dr. Bento, he never complained, always said “good morning” and was always a good worker. I admired his work ethic. He was very humble man. He is truly missed at CSP-Sac and I am speaking for everyone here in the mental health department. Our hearts go out to his family and friends. RIP, Dr. Bento.

    Dr. Bento was a co-worker of mine at Rudolf Steiner College for many years. He was a very gracious and
    kind person and very respected by me and others at the College.
