1934 - 2022
It is with deep sadness that Various Small Fires announces the passing of Billy Al Bengston (1934-2022). Billy died peacefully of natural causes in the arms of his loving wife, Wendy, at their home in Venice, California.

Billy—you were singular. Words cannot describe the loss of this California legend, who was loved and revered by so many. It was a true pleasure working with Billy in the last years of his life and such an honor to be entrusted with his work and legacy. You will be missed dearly.
