Bobby E. Bennett, age 87, passed away January 27, 2022.
Bobby was the beloved husband of the late Mildred Bennett; loving father of Barbara (Dave) Hanley, Kathy (Ken) Kennedy, and the late Eric Bennett; devoted grandfather of Erin (Rochelle), Jeff, Michelle (Jeff), Kyle (Ashlee), Kory, and Kris (Natasha); and proud great-grandfather of 7.
Bobby was always a hard and dedicated worker and had over 30 years as a Railroad worker and retired from that career. His lifelong passion was music. He played any kind of guitar you could dream of and played in quite a few bands over the years. Bobby was always hard at work and saved everything he could. He loved to fix anything he could himself. He was a regular Mr. Fix-It and Jack-of-all-Trades. His other pass-times included playing chess and woodworking (he even built a few of his own guitars). He always liked to catch a game of his favorite teams, the Kentucky Wildcats and the Dallas Cowboys. Later in life, he was more of a home-body and liked to sleep in, but he still enjoyed talking about and hearing about the lives of his kids and grandkids, the greatest joys of his life.
Visitation Friday, February 4, from 3:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. with a 7:00 p.m. Funeral Service at David Wysocki Funeral Home, 29440 Ryan Road, Warren, Michigan.
Donations in his name may be made to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
