Is this the Fidel Benavides that I worked with in the 1990's at Pagoda Trading Corp? If so, I am crushed. The Fidel I knew was a wonderful, free - spirited man who left the footwear business to do woodworking. This man was a dear friend, and we spent many days together in Taiwan and Hong Kong. May God bless Fidel and his family. Rest in peace, my dear friend. Alan Levy, November 2, 2019
