David Forbes Bennett

BENNETT, DAVID FORBES, 59, born to Joy Post and Walter V. Bennett, passed away on March 15, 2013 at the Mayo Clinic, while being treated for respiratory problems.

David was deeply connected to the Oldham County Community: a retired volunteer fireman of 30 plus years, a local farmer growing hay, and a master cattleman raising black Angus cattle. He was interested in maintaining the land for hunting, and worked hard to promote wild life protection and trail building. He was a great horseman, trainer and fox hunter. David was always ready to drop everything in order to help his friends, neighbors, and family with his winning smile and sense of humor. As a retirement specialist, David served with Alexander Investment Services for over 20 years.

He is survived by his children, Hamilton Barlow Bennett and Baylor Alexander Bennett, both of Somerville, MA; his sisters, Gay Stoltz, Julester Bennett and Grace Bennett, and his brother Stuart.

A celebration of his life will be held 4-7 p.m. Friday at the Long Run Hunt Lodge. The Lodge is located at the end of Brooks Lane off of US 60 in Simpsonville, KY.
