WARSAW — Bob R. Bennett, 74, of TR 341, passed away Friday, March 30, 2012, at Southeastern Medical Center in Cambridge following a lengthy illness.

He was born April 23, 1937, in Jerryville, W.Va., to the late Arnt and Fleuridellis (Parker) Bennett. He married Irene (Fronsman) Bennett Feb. 18, 1956. He worked at the Rice-Chadwick Co. in Killbuck for 35 years. Although he loved his job there, he was a farmer at heart and loved nothing better than to be on his tractor mowing. He loved being outdoors and had a passion for helping others. He will be greatly missed.

He is survived by his wife, Irene Bennett of Warsaw; his son, Robert (Tammy) Bennett of Warsaw; one granddaughter, Brittne, of San Antonio, Texas; and one grandson, Cole, of Warsaw. His grandchildren were his pride and joy, and he loved them very much. He is also survived by two brothers, Dan (Karen) Bennett, of Millwood, and Steve (Ann) Bennett of Fredericktown; and a sister, Mary (Junior) Carter, of Shreve.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by two brothers, Gene and Ross Bennett; and two sisters, Jane Bennett and Sylvia Looney.

Funeral services will be held at 1 p.m. Monday at the Fischer Funeral Home in Warsaw, with the Rev. Bill Russell officiating. Burial will follow at Darling Run Cemetery near Warsaw. Visitation is one hour prior to service time. Visit
