We Lost Jim Bennett on June 7, 2010 (BHS '66)

From the Loop today:
"We are also saddened to tell you that Jim Bennett '66, recently passed away unexpectedly. Our deepest sympathies go out to his Mother, Brother Tom Bennett '68, and Sister-in-law Annette Dinolfo Bennett '68, his nieces and nephews and many many friends. Plans for a Memorial have not yet been finalized. Jimmy will be missed by so many..."

We are praying for Jim's loved ones.

August 9, 2010 UPDATE

From Gil Uribe...


Just wanted to drop you a line and let you know that the Jim Bennett Celebration of LIfe get together came out better than I had hoped for. Family and friends were all there and Jim's nephew gave a beautiful and touching speech about his Uncle. Perfect night and the Bennett family really appreciated it.

Have a good one,
