  • Southbury’s Quiet Entrepreneur Homer Bennett Celebrates 60 Years

    During his post-World War II military service, Homer Bennett sat in the precarious position of tail gunner in a fighter bomber flying from what was at the time the largest ocean-going craft on earth, the USS Franklin D. Roosevelt.

    When he returned to his home town of Southbury, a growing suburban community tucked into the southern fringe of the Litchfield hills, he did what a lot of young returning veterans did — bought a car and got himself a job to pay it off.
