New Canaan native Ron Bentley was on a golf course with his uncle at the family’s regular outing in Vermont three years ago when he began to consider taking over the family business. His uncle, Bobby Thompson, had launched Key Holder Services Inc, an alarm response and vacation house check service, in 1990, and his aunt, Sue Thompson, had been an owner. “I started talking to him about selling the business to me, and I just said, ‘Please give me first opportunity to keep it in the family,’ ” Bentley told NewCanaanite.com on a recent morning. Today, Ron Bentley and his wife, Kelly, are about one year into ownership and operation of a business that sees them connect with area residents in a personal way to ensure their homes are safe and secure—already a priority for Ron Bentley as a longtime New Canaan police officer. “It was a risk but I think it’s a good risk,” Ron Bentley said of the decision to acquire the business from his uncle.
