William Marshall Bennett, known to friends as “Willo,” passed away unexpectedly on Friday, April 13, 2018 at the age of 62. Willo was a loving husband, father and grandfather.

Willo, you left this earth so young. I know you’re at peace and out of pain. You will be missed by so many. Your 3 babies lost their dad so suddenly and so young. Please know that Aunt Pam and Uncle Garry will always be there for Aaron, Holly and Scott. I will always remember your jokes and will be forever thankful that you and Glenda let Holly spend her Senior year with us. It meant the world to my family. Rest In Peace Willo.

Willo....we are so saddened by your sudden departure from this earth. However I will always carry your memory because of the three beautiful children we had together. You had special names for each on. Our son Aaron was "Rascal", our daughter Holly was "Baby girl" and our son Scott was"Special boy". You loved them such much those special names were tattooed on you. You will be in our hearts forever. We will miss you but are comforted to know you are at peace. Love your wife of almost 27 years, Glenda who you fondly called "G" or "BUD".

Dear Dad,
You were my beloved father. You held my hand as a little girl. You read me Winnie the Pooh books. You hugged me when I did wrong. You called me “unique” instead of different. We had a lot of wasted time, and I’m sorry about that. I missed you then and miss you now. I carry you with me until my end of time. I loved you and know you loved me, too.

I know that Aaron and Holly are going to miss you as much as I will. I wish we could have had more time together. So many of us do. I wish we had the opportunity to mend fences and work through difficult issues. I wish my children had the opportunity to get to know you. I wish for a lot of things. The selfish part of me wishes that you were still here too. You always wanted to do the right thing even if you didn't. I know the pain had a lot to do with that. I'm glad to know you don't have to carry that pain anymore.

Rest well dad.
