He is survived by his wife of 46 years Sherry G Brown, and his children Adam (Kathy), Ashburn, VA, Kevin (Kim) Dumfries, VA, Corey (Samantha) Ashburn, VA. He is also survived by his five grandchildren (Caden, Olivia, Avery, Landon and Kinsey) and two step grandchildren (Landon and June). Family and close friends attended a celebration of life memorial on July 21, 2021 at the Paradise Springs Winery in Clifton, VA . A Florida celebration of life dinner was organized by schoolmates Randy Briggs and Rod Canon in Ocala, FL on Oct 27, 2021. Thank you to everyone who attended and spoke about particular times they remembered with Bennett. A very special thanks to those friends in Northern Virginia who were helpful to him when transportation was needed as his sight deteriorated.\nMemorial contributions may be made to the JDRF Mid-Atlantic Foundation, 1400 K Street NW, Suite 1200, Washington, DC 20005. JDRF has consistently designated 75-85% of all donations to research, with administrative expenses being kept to a minimum.\nDeserving of special recognition is Direct Cremation Services of Virginia, Chantilly, VA. They provide a service, which has in the past, been unparalleled for families who are putting together arrangements for a deceased relative, can use their facility, at a very modest cost for cremation only, not necessarily in conjunction with, or a part of, any funeral home or other services, although they offer those services also. We chose them as we desired the cremation package only. They exceeded our expectations as a professional group of people providing a service to vulnerable, shaken families always asking how we wanted to proceed-identification, transportation, signing of forms, and retrieving the ashes. They could not have been more aware, caring and concerned about the feelings and desires of the family, and it was perfectly thought out. We were more than happy and impressed with our experience. I would highly recommend them to anyone desiring cremation only.
