Birth: Feb. 8, 1928
Young County
Texas, USA
Death: Mar. 25, 1984
Maricopa County
Arizona, USA

Edmond Elmo Bennett was the son of Lewis E. Bennett and Tinnie Mateo Ruston Tuttle Bennett. His parents met in Arizona. His father was from California; his mother, from Texas. His parents gave their son and only child the first name of his grandfather--Edmond. He was born in 1928 in Young County, Texas, after his parents' move from Arizona.

By 1933 young Edmond and his parents had moved to Pasadena, California, where his father worked first doing yard maintenance. By 1940 they were living in Archer County, Texas. His father was working there as a pipe fitter for a company that mined copper. They lived next in Palo Alto, California, and then San Jose, California, where Lewis worked as a plumber. Edmond joined the U. S. Army while the family was living in California. He served during the Korean War.

At some point after 1954, Edmond and his mother Tinnie returned to Arizona to live. She died in Maricopa County in 1982. Edmond died there two years later in 1984. His father Lewis died in 1986 in Cleveland, Ohio. Their three graves are next to each other in Valley of the Sun Mortuary and Cemetery.

Edmond descended from a proud Texas family and had ancestors who served under Sam Houston at the Battle of San Jacinto:
