Dean John Bennett was born Aug. 25, 1928, in Hay Springs, Neb. Dean was preceded in death by his parents, John and Bernice Bennett; brother, Keith Bennett, of Hay Springs; and children, Dan and Kathy Bennett, of Jacksonville, Fla. As a 25-year superintendent at Bank Buildings of America and a lifelong Mason, Dean earned the respect of all who knew him for his industrious nature and tireless work ethic. Dean served two years in Japan with the U.S. Army following World War II. Dean's interests were many, but his love for the LSU Tigers and Nebraska Cornhuskers was unmatched. He was a woodworking craftsman of legendary stature and the work he left us will speak of his talent for generations to come.
Dean is survived by his wife, Kitty McCarroll Bennett and her children, Laura LeBlanc, Jeff Walker and Mike Walker. His brother, Steve Bennett and sister, Mary Metcalf also survive him and reside in Hay Springs. Survivors also include six grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Regarding Dean's wishes, no funeral service is planned. Arrangements entrusted to Charlet Funeral Homes, Inc., Zachary, La.
