BENNETT, David Robert

April 21, 1968 – Calgary, Alberta
August 17, 2018 – Calgary, Alberta

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our son, brother, uncle, nephew and cousin, David Robert Bennett, on August 17, 2018 at the age of 50 years.

David was born in Calgary, AB on April 21, 1968 to parents, Marion (Terry) Poole (nee Helps) and Robbie (Mon) Bennett. He was the grandson of the late Harold and Anne Helps and Robert and Daisy Bennett, all of Calgary.

David was athletic, thoughtful and funny and was loyal and caring to a fault. He was keenly interested in history and was an avid Flames and Stampeders fan, but nothing made him happier than spending time with his two best friends, his son and his mom. He is and will be missed greatly by all.

Besides his parents, David is survived by his son, Jake; his sister Michelle (Steve) Kraemer; his brother Michael (Lyda) Bennett; his niece, Ashley Weeks; his nephew, Jack Bennett; his aunt and uncle Sue and Dave Helps; numerous other aunts, uncles, cousins and friends and his appropriately named cat, Blackitty.

In accordance with David’s wishes, cremation will take place and no service will be held.

Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to Epilepsy Canada (www.epilepsy.ca).

In living memory of David Bennett, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Park Memorial, 5008 Elbow Drive S.W., Calgary, AB, T2S 2L5, Telephone: 403-243-8200.

Offer Condolence for the family of BENNETT, David Robert
