Police & Fire
Putnam Names County Undersheriff
Paul Boscia, who just recently retired from the Sheriff’s Office, will take the post.
By Lanning Taliaferro (Patch Staff) – January 19, 2017 7:08 am ET

*** begin quote ***

Putnam County Sheriff Donald B. Smith announces that he has named Paul Boscia as the new Undersheriff of the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office.

Boscia’s appointment fills a vacancy in the position following the untimely death on Nov. 15, 2016 of the previous long-time Undersheriff, Peter Convery.

Boscia’s official appointment as Undersheriff will commence on Feb. 6 and is effective through the remainder of Smith’s current elected term of office, which runs through Dec. 31, 2017.

*** and ***

In addition to his long police service, Boscia has served his country in the Air Force, first serving as an active member for ten years before joining the Sheriff’s Office and then continuing as a member of the Air Force Reserve until retiring in 2006 at the rank of Lieutenant Colonel.

Boscia holds a bachelor’s degree from Manhattan College and is a graduate of the FBI National Academy. He and his wife, Regina, reside in Putnam County, where they have raised their four children.

“The death of Undersheriff Peter Convery left a big hole in our hearts and it also left big shoes to fill in leading the men and women of the Sheriff’s Office and in serving our citizens,” said Smith in the announcement. “I am grateful to Paul Boscia and to his wife, Regina, for temporarily putting their retirement plans on hold and for answering the call to duty for the people of Putnam County.

Following the Sheriff’s announcement, Boscia said that he is “honored by the Sheriff’s appointment” and that he is “privileged to serve as his Undersheriff.” Boscia went on to express confidence that his long experience in the Sheriff’s Office will enable him to serve the County well in his new role: “The Sheriff is an outstanding leader and I am prepared, together with the very capable command staff of the Sheriff’s Office, to assist him in fulfilling our mission to serve and protect the community with professionalism and dedication.”

Donald W. Rowe
1940 – 2017
Obituary 

Age: 76

Donald W. Rowe passed away on January 17th, 2017 at the VNA Hospice House in Vero Beach, Florida from a brain injury resulting from a fall. Don was born in Yonkers, N.Y. on July 31, 1940 the second son of Harry and Agnes Rowe. He graduated from Gorton High School and Manhattan College and completed graduate studies at Columbia University and NYU. He had a long and fulfilling career teaching English and directing theater at colleges and Universities in Ohio, Maine, and Vermont. His lifelong passion was all aspects of the theater including directing, acting, and attending. He directed over 60 college and community productions and starred in some of his favorite plays including Hamlet, Equus, Macbeth, King Lear, Coriolanus. He taught English and directed theater at Champlain College in Burlington, VT for over two decades and inspired countless young people in the love and craft of acting and theater. During his tenure at Champlain College he produced original adaptations of East of Eden and Rebel Without a Cause. He also directed community theater at the Unadilla Theater, the Vermont Repertory Theater, the Stowe Theater Guild and the Shelburne Players. He attended the Stratford, Ontario Theater Festival over 30 consecutive years and was a season ticket holder for local theater groups wherever he lived. Few people loved or had greater knowledge of theater than Don.

His passion for theater was almost equaled by his love of movies. He had encyclopedic knowledge of directors, actors, and productions and shared his infectious passion with friends and family. His home is a library of books, CDs, and recordings of his favorite theater and movie productions.

Don is survived and forever loved by his four siblings, David Rowe and his wife Ellen, Frances Rowe, Susan Rowe and her husband Ib, and Will Rowe and his wife Theresa—all who live in Vero Beach, Florida. Donald was an inspiring uncle to his nieces Alison, Amy, and Alyssa and his nephew Chris and their families. He also showed interest and caring to his step-niece and step nephew, Carol Cowan and Chris Jones. He always zeroed in on the happenings of the young lives in the family.

A memorial gathering for Don will be held in the community room of Trinity Episcopal Church, 5171 Shelburne Road in Shelburne Village, VT at 3 p.m. on Sunday, January 29th. Friends are invited to come and share memories, tributes, readings, and theatrical monologues or scenes, especially from the many plays in which Don was involved as a director and/or actor. Refreshments will be served and contributions in that regard are welcome. For details or if you would like to sign up in advance for a reading, contact Robbie Harold at rah53@comcast.net.

To honor Don’s life, people are invited to make a contribution to the Shelburne Players, 274 Hullcrest Rd, Shelburne, VT 05482.

“He was a man, take him for all in all. I shall not look upon his like again.”

William Rudolf “Bill” Bensch
1943 – 2017
Obituary 

William “Bill” Rudolf Bensch

73, of Indianapolis, went home to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on January 14, 2017.

He was born July 31, 1943 in New York City to the late Rudolf and Phyllis DeGuard Bensch. Bill graduated from Archbishop Malloy High School, received his BA from Manhattan College and his Masters Degree from Purdue University. At Purdue Bill met Diane Kjonaas, who would become his wife of more than 46 years. Together they had four children. Bill was employed as a Biochemist at Eli Lilly and Company for 35 years, retiring in 2008.

Bill was active in several area churches including St. Thomas Aquinas, Indianapolis 1st Church of the Nazarene and East 91st Street Christian. Passionate about theology and ancient history, Bill was the leader of dozens of Bible studies, Sunday School classes and small groups.

Bill was a very active participant in the lives of his four children, volunteering his time as a soccer coach, Bible quizzing director and science fair judge. For many years he was a volunteer with the Lawrence Central Performing Arts Association where he supported his children in both the marching band and show choir.

Though never exposed to it as a child, Bill became an active camper in his adult life, taking his family on camping trips to National parks all over the United States and Canada. He also organized a yearly camping trip that included dozens of families from Indianapolis 1st Church.

Bill became a Master Gardener through the Purdue Extension program in 2010. His other hobbies included photography, music appreciation and woodworking.

Diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease shortly after his retirement, Bill and his family were supported by many volunteers and organizations around the city. The family would especially like to thank the kind and caring staffs at the following organizations: the Alzheimer’s Support Group at E91, especially it’s leader, Dawn; the Still Waters Adult Day Center at Castleton United Methodist; the Reflections Unit at Hancock Regional Hospital; the Cherished Memories Unit at Copper Trace and Heart to Heart Hospice.

The family would also like to give a special thanks to Bill’s daughter, Kristen, who moved home from California to assist in Bill’s care and support her mother, Diane, in this journey. With Kristen’s support, and Diane’s service to her husband, Bill was able to remain at home until the final weeks of his life.

A celebration of life service will be held on Saturday, January 21, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. with visitation from 11:00 a.m. at East 91st Street Christian Church, 6049 East 91st Street, Indianapolis 46250.

Bill is survived by his loving wife, Diane; sons, Nathan (Tara), Tim (Kacy), and Ben Bensch; daughter, Kristen Bensch; and grandchildren, Aidan, Maddie, Quinlyn and Alexis Bensch.

In lieu of flowers or other gifts the family requests that Memorial contributions may be made to the Still Waters Adult Day Center at Castleton United Methodist Church. Checks can be made to “Still Waters Adult Day Center,” 7160 Shadeland Station, Door #3, Indianapolis, IN 46256. Final care and arrangements entrusted to Shirley Brothers Washington Memorial Chapel. http://www.shirleybrothers.com
