ADD A MEMORY
Hans-Eric Pitsch

March 30, 2019

To the Bennett Family my deepest condolences on his passing. My name is Hans-Eric Pitsch and I live in Orlando, Florida. I am currently 51 years old and have been looking for Mr. Bennett and the Bennett family since I was 19 years old. I was born in Berlin , Germany January 22, 1968. Mr. Bennett is my biological father. He was with my mother (Ute Dagmar Feldman Pitsch) in 1967 in Glendale, California. He met my mother as a cook working for Frish's big Boy Resteraunt. What little I know of Mr. Bennett is that he served in the Airforce, his birthday is February 3rd and that I have a half sister named Lisa. He was born in Louisville, Kentucky. I am hoping to find out more about him and his family. I, of course wish I would have been able to meet him. If you are a family member I am hoping you will contact me and tell me about Mr. Bennetts life. Sincerely,
Hans-Eric Pitsch
