My Grandfather.....

Born to G.W. and Daisy Lou Mitchell Bennich He farmed most of his life and worked for Ingalls shipyard at night.. Owen retired and a week later was completely blind, from an inherited disease. During the Great depression he hauled timbers for the bridge that originally spanned the Tennessee River on Highway 31 in Decatur. During World War II he worked in the shipyards in Mobile Alabama.

He was a kind Christian man that raised 4 sons Joe,Thomas,Larry,& Rex.He was Called Poppaw by his grandchildren whom he adored.
My grandmother would give him scolding's at times because he would give away the vegetables that were to go to market.
Some of his siblings said he took from his parents, ...They took his inheritance from him, a few gave his part back to him. He was a humble man and never fought them or showed the court his letter. His sons found it many years later and cried asking him why....
My Pappaw taught me to drive at the age of 9 on the very land I live today. He loved to go to the County Fair we went every year. I would ride with him on many trips to neighbors homes where he would take food to others.
