Bennett J. Birnie

March 20, 1962 ~ September 29, 2012

Birnie went peacefully into the loving arms of Our Lord Jesus, suddenly, on Saturday. People who know him can almost hear him saying "Excellent!" He is survived by his beloved wife Penny Brandon, his parents Fr. Michael and Pat Birnie, and his brother David. He was a talented musician; he played the organ for the church and enthusiastically sang and played in a local band. He was an avid motorcycle enthusiast. He was noted to be the Main Character for ABC Legal for 25 years where his optimistic, humble, "go to man" attitude will be sorely missed. He was recently made a Deacon at St. Thomas Church after several years of devoted service. The Congregation also appreciated his "can do" attitude and depended on him for every aspect of the church life.

Please join us for a celebration of Birnie's life, Sunday October 7th at 2:00 p.m. at St. Thomas Church. 165 NW 65th St Seattle.
