Funny and warm, a giver to his core. When he smiled or laughed you felt it. He hunted the deer and loved to fish the big Pee Dee. He loved most of all his people. You knew if you were under his circle of protection. He knew loyalty and had a bravery that is rare in this world.  His sense of humor and wit were a gift to us. The memories we have because of who he was are too many to count.  Those who loved him will be forever changed by being a part of him, changed by his rugged love, fierce protection, and kindness. His strength and sincerity were something that he wore so easily. A gentleman, a jokester, and a lover of gravy, he lived full out and we loved him for it.

 
He is survived by his wife Laura Rollins Bennett, his boy Thres Bennett and wife Joanna, and his Cookie, Maggie Bennett. Three sisters Norma Hudson (Billy), Shannon Bennett (Rhonda Watts), and Charrish Welch (Legrand). One brother, Cullen Bennett. His mother and father in law, Bud and Kathy Rollins. His brother in law, Trez Rollins and wife Deanna. His super crew of nieces and nephews that meant the world to him.
 
He was preceded in death by his mother, Margaret Hicks Bennett, father Norman Bennett, and his son Taylor "Buck" Bennett that are joyfully waiting to greet him in Heaven.
 
"A life so beautifully lived, should be beautifully remembered"
 

Norton Funeral Home and Crematory is honored to serve the Bennett family.
