Obituary for Michael Raymond Bennett

Bennett, Michael
Howell, Michigan

His Legacy… Michael Raymond Bennett, age 62, passed away on August 3, 2019. He was born on August 25, 1956, in Detroit, MI to Raymond and Frances (Irwin) Bennett. Michael married Lynne Stone on May 20, 1978, in New Holland, PA. He retired at the age of 50 from Hewlett Packard and then, bored by retirement, sold cars 'just for fun' at Champion Chevrolet. Michael loved animals, as attested by the many dogs, cats, and horses he and his wife owned and loved throughout the years. He was a die-hard Detroit Lions fan, despite often quipping that the team would never win a Super Bowl in his lifetime! He also enjoyed hockey; watching the Red Wings and coaching youth roller & ice hockey. Michael was also a 1st Dan Kukkiwon registered black belt in taekwondo, training for many years in Brighton. He was humorous, passionate, protective, and giving. He will be missed by all who knew and loved him.

His Family… Michael leaves behind his wife, Lynne; daughters, Melissa (Michael) Briscoe, Rachel Bennett; and grandchildren, Xander and Laney. He is also survived by his sister, Deb (John) Moretto. He is preceded in death by his parents.

His Farewell… Michael’s Community Farewell will be on Friday, October 11 at Oceola Township Community Center from 4pm - 8pm. Memorial contributions are suggested to Greyhounds of Eastern Michigan via their Facebook page or during his Celebration of Life in October, where dogs looking for forever homes will be visiting.
