Obituary   -   Ronald Bennett

BENNETT Ronald formerly of East Malling Passed away peacefully at home with his family On November 11, 2010 Aged 77. Dearly loved husband, dad, grandad and great-grandad. I stood beside your bedside, My heart was sad and sore, I tended you with every care, ?Till I could do no more. With tearful eyes, I watched you go, Upon your lonely way, Although I loved you dearly, I could not make you stay. A heart as good as gold, No-one knew how much you suffered, Because you never told. Funeral service to take place at Medway Crematorium at 10.00am on Tuesday November 23, 2010. Family flowers only. Donations please to Pilgrims Hospice, Ashford c/o Viner & Sons Ltd., 54 High Street, West Malling ME19 6LU. Tel 01732 842485. Family and friends are respectfully invited and afterwards at West Malling Town Club.

A man with warmth, love and compassion. He always had time for anyone, whether it be a life long friend or a stranger in the street His sense of humour and laid back approach to life made him someone to admire and respect. I will never forget you brother and always keep you in my heart.

Truly a most wonderful, funny, kind, fantastic man. I am so proud to be your son. I love and miss you so much. Paul xx By Paul Bennett on 19 Nov 2010

Obituary - Ronald Bennett

When I first met you, your opening words were, " Hello mate, want a cuppa. " From that moment on you welcomed me into your home and your heart. You were the most wonderful father in law and I am honoured to have met you and had you in my life, if only for three short years.
Through you I am blessed because I have your son Paul who is the most fantastic husband, he takes after you in so many ways and mannerisms and his son Red who has inherited your football skills and talent but not the Everton gene !
Dad, you are in a better place now, free from pain and suffering. Rest in peace.

Love from Pauline
By Pauline Bennett on 19 Nov 2010
