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.

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,
