The other day, I met Ben Pepper. He has lived in Westport since 1958. I moved here as a child with my parents two years ago. Yet in nearly 70 years, I had never heard his name.
what a shame. He is a wonderful person. Five months shy of 100 years old, he still lives — alone — off North Avenue in the house he and his wife, Frances, built when Eisenhower was president.
