Emanuel “Benny” Bennett, 77, passed away on Wednesday, February 10, 2016 at his home in New Smyrna Beach, FL. He was born March 25, 1938 in West Virginia and moved later to New Smyrna Beach, FL. “Benny” worked for the Road and Bridge Division of Volusia County until he retired. He is survived by his wife, Patty Bennett, his step children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and one brother.
He enjoyed golfing, fishing, camping and family gatherings and anything that had to do with the grandchildren.
A life celebration will be held at a later date.
All of us here in PA want to extend our deepest sympathies to you and the rest of our FL family. You and Benny always helped us so much through the years at our home and then when Paul got sick you worked together and traveled thousands of miles to take care of us many times. We will always be grateful for the years that we had with Benny and the times we were able to spend with him. I know Paul and Benny enjoyed golfing together. Benny and Paul will now be able to visit with each other in heaven and maybe play a few rounds of golf up there. God Bless you Pat. We love you and we loved Pop. With Love from your PA family. Love, Sharon, April, Stacy, Bobby, Logan, Landon and Preston
The sorrow of the faithful
is not that of permanent loss,
but the tender sense of sadness
that comes in saying good-bye for now
to someone we love.
May today's sorrow give way
to the peace and
comfort of God's love.
We love you.
