Bennie Walter Bean, age 81, of Stevens Point, Wisconsin, died on June 29, 2020 at Northshore Health Services in Little Chute.

Bennie was born December 6, 1938 to Emmett and Minnie (Williams) Bean in Linwood, Wisconsin. He attended the local schools and enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1962. He was an Engineer Equipment Mechanic and was honorably discharged in 1964.

He enjoyed spending time with his family, playing cards, assembling puzzles, and listening to polkas. His loved ones will remember his laughter, hugs, patience, kind-heartedness, and willingness to help anyone.
