Not sure what to say?

I always appreciated Don's smile, he made me feel special and we will miss him.

Lisa and Family,
Chester and I send our condolences to you all on the loss of your father, husband and grandfather. We met Don once at your home, Lisa, when we celebrated your college graduation and you could just feel how much he loved his family and how proud he was of your accomplishment. It was a very special day to remember. You're in our thoughts and prayers. Love, Judy and Chester

This was the Eulogy that my brother Don read at Dad's service. He summed up Dad's life very nicely! We will all miss him very much!!!

The fact that all of us have gathered here today to celebrate the life of a great friend, husband, and father speaks volumes as to the wonderful life my father had. He was always there for everyone. When he owned his business, many of his customers became friends and he would do anything to help them when they were going through rough times.

We found this old photo of 413 Becks Run Road Birringer Service which eventually became Bennett's Service

Our thought and prayers are with your family during this time of sadness.

I can not think of Dad without the rest of my family. They are all one unit. Which is such a rare and beautiful love to witness. Let alone to be part of.

Provided me guidennce when I needed to be shown the way. How do I share with everyone the love I felt as a little girl looking up at a man who cared so deeply for his...

Bennett Family And Friends,

Uncle Don was an inspiration to me throughout my life. He taught me to talk like Donald Duck. This legacy has been carried on; my daughter Caitlyn (Don's great great niece) loves the 'Donald Duck' voice and is currently taking lessons. Furthermore, Uncle Don served in the Army and as a fellow veteran has my utmost respect and admiration. The most inspiring thing about Uncle Don is is love and devotion to his wonderful family. I hope to follow in his...

Dear Margaret,

We would like to extend our sincere condolences on your loss.
A long time ago I met Donald when he was a serving soldier stationed in Germany. He visited our family – his relatives in Germany – and I will always remember him as very kind person.

Our thoughts are with you in these difficult and trying times.
Please accept our condolences during your time of loss.

With deepest sympathy
Wolfgang Birringer with Ulli, Markus, Thomas...
