Family-Placed Death Notice

BENNETT, Lawton Lawton Bennett passed away in Marietta, GA on January 25, 2011. He was born in Hackensack, NJ to John Allen Bennett and Mary Lennis McCall, the third of three children. As a child, he traveled extensively through South America for his father's business. The family moved back to Englewood, NJ and then to Miami, FL. Lawton was a graduate of Florida Military School in Deland, FL. He attended Stetson University and graduated from the University of Miami with a degree in Finance. After a brief career in the airline industry, Lawton "fell" into the furniture business as an Operations Officer with Mangurian's and Levitz. In 1976, he formed a manufacturers' rep company selling contemporary furniture in the Southeast. Bennett and Company also had a showroom at AmericasMart for over 25 years where Lawton served on the Board of Advisors for many years. He was passionate about anything to do with business and history, especially the McCall family in Georgia. He delighted in finding relatives. His special joy was being with this family. He is survived by his wife, Pat, and their two daughters, Blythe Smith (Steve) of Smyrna, GA and Melissa Bennett (Ulrich Brinkmann) of Atlanta; two grandchildren, Mary Beatrix and Beck Bennett Smith; and a sister, Edith Confehr of Novato, CA. He is also survived by two sisters-in-law and four nieces and three nephews. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the Boy Scouts of America in his name. A Celebration of Life will be held February 4, 2011 at The Capital City Club - Downtown from 6:00 - 9:00 pm. http://www.lawtonbennett.myevent.com/ Castellaw Funeral Home, Smyrna, GA 770- 435-9038 www.castellawfuneral home.com
