Michael Bennett, 71 of Marietta, GA passed away on September 14, 2012. He was born to the late Roger and Beatrice Bennett on October 20, 1940 in Bronx, NY. He grew up in the Bronx and also lived in Mahopac, NY and New Fairfield, CT. He eventually settled in Marietta in 1981. Michael enjoyed a 30 year career with IBM working in their real estate department. He was a man with many hobbies, including coin and stamp collecting and keeping track of the teams at the University of Georgia. Some of his many interests included history (especially WWII and the Civil War) and trains. As a Boy Scout leader he was very thoughtful and caring.

Parents are like air.We can't feel it much when we are breathing. They are there for us all the time. But when we lose them, we start to feel the big void and pain in our heart, and for a long time. Roger, I pray that God is and will be with you and your family now and time to come, giving you strength and peace to face this difficult loss in your life.
