J.C. Bennett

AGE: 68 • Ocean View

John C. "J.C." Bennett, 68, of Ocean View went home to be with the Lord on September 1, 2016, after a brief illness.

He was born in Sharptown, Maryland to Victor and Mildred Bennett. With his family, he moved to the Ocean View area as a child. From his early years as a lifeguard in Bethany Beach to his later years fishing and going on nature walks, J.C. was an avid outdoorsman. He enjoyed fishing, boating, kayaking, canoeing, and bird watching.

J.C. graduated from Lord Baltimore High School in 1967. He was a member of the Delaware National Guard and worked for the phone company. He retired from Verizon in 2008 after 34 years of service. He and his wife, Patricia, settled down in Clarksville, where they raised their daughter, Kristen.

He is survived by his wife, Patricia, with whom he shared 41 wonderful years of marriage, and his daughter, P. Kristen Bennett. J.C. was predeceased by his parents, Mildred and Victor Bennett, and his brother Leland "Lee" Bennett.

The family wishes to thank the medical staff at Atlantic General Hospital and Peninsula Regional Medical Center not only for the wonderful care that they provided but also for their kindness and compassion.
