John N. Bennett
March 31, 1932 – May 9, 2018
John Neil Bennett of Fairfield, OH passed away on May 9, 2018 at Mercy Hospital Fairfield.
John was born on March 31, 1932 to Raymond S. and Lurley (Judd) Bennett in Hamilton, OH. On February 2, 1953, he married Janet Rae Whitmore. They celebrated 65 years of marriage which was an inspiration to everyone. John is survived by his wife, Janet; their three children, Vicki (Mark) Fasick, Lois (Mitch) Rhodus and John Bennett. He is also survived by his grandchildren, Chris (Brittney) Fasick, Brad (Brooke) Rhodus and Katie Osborne; and three great-grandchildren, Braxton Fasick and Grady and Laney Osborne. John was a decorated Korean Conflict Veteran who proudly served with the US Army as a radio operator. John worked as a crane operator for McGraw Construction under the Ohio Operating Engineers. He also worked maintenance for Ultimate Distributing and Bennett Beverage until his retirement. He lived a wonderful life of faith and was very instrumental in the construction and building of the Fairfield Wesleyan Church, where he also served as Superintendent and Sunday school teacher. John was a loving, honorable, giving, quiet and gentle man of his word. He was constantly doing for others without ever expecting anything in return, many times without their knowledge of his good deed. His actions spoke louder than his words. He was a great role model. John was preceded in death by his parents; brothers, Jim, Paul and Tommy Bennett; and sisters, Mary Wright and Ruth Shaeffer. Visitation will be held from 5pm until 7pm on Monday, May 14, 2018 at Webb Noonan Kidd Funeral Home, Ross Avenue at South “D” Street in Hamilton. Funeral Service will be held at 10am on Tuesday, May 15, 2018 at the funeral home. Interment with Military Honors will follow in Arlington Memorial Gardens in Mt. Healthy, OH. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions be made in John’s name to The Joe Nuxhall Miracle League Fields, PO Box 18146, Fairfield, OH 45014.

I was surprised and saddened to read in the Hamilton Journal that a respected friend, John Bennett (Janet's Husband) had passed away on Wednesday. He was one of a kind and thoughtful of others and helped out whenever he was needed. There's another light in heaven tonight and the earth is a little dimmer. Rest in peace, John, and love to Janet.

We are saddened by your dad’s passing. We loved him and spent many hours walking dogs with him.
We all know where he is and Heaven is a better place now.
I’m still not up for traveling, little energy and weak, or we would be there. But these effects will pass—no more chemo.
Please hug your mom for us.
And please come see us.
We miss you.

Please accept our sincere sympathy to you and your family. I saw the notification in the Enquirer and wanted to reach out. How wonderful to have been married for such a long period of time; a wonderful gift to your family.
I remember your story of how you and John met when you were working behind an ice cream counter.
Just as a reminder: we worked at Xtek in the 80's. You and David Pollack left the company and I married and moved to Florida. You and John attended our wedding reception. We lost touch but I thought of you often. We are now living in Mason, Ohio.
May you find peace in your memories and your wonderful family.

What a dear man.... I can still see him walking Poco and Alex in the neighborhood. He was a quiet and gentle soul and I'm certain his family will miss him dearly. He left a mark on all our hearts. RIP Mr. Bennett... You were someone to idolize.

I wanted to offer my sincere condolences to the family and friends. Certainly Almighty God did not intend for us to experience the loss of our loved ones. In fact, please find comfort from his wonderful promise found at Isaiah 25:8.
