• David Benoit Reveals His Final Conversation With His Father, Chris Benoit
During a recent interview with Chris Van Vliet, David Benoit (son of Chris Benoit from his first marriage) revealed the final conversation he had with his father.
Below is what David said:
“No, I didn’t see him that much. I’d see him in the summer for four weeks and then two weeks for Christmas.
I talked to my dad on Father’s Day. That was the last time. We talked for like two hours.
We were just laughing and getting ready to make plans for the summer and I got to say ‘I love you’ one last time to him. That was the last time.”
