Charles Edward Bennett
Friends and Schoolmates,
I am very saddened to report this news today. Charles Bennett, father of my #1 daughter-in-law, Mary Bennett Harty (Litchfield HS, IL - '89) of IL, and father-in-law of my #1 son, Lewis Harty (Hillsboro HS, MO / Hillsboro HS, IL - '89) of IL, passed away at the Hillsboro Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center, Hillsboro, Illinois on Tuesday, September 15, 2015, just nine days before his 91 birthday.
Charles was an amazing man, a decorated veteran of WWII, who fought in the Battle of the Bulge among many others.
His wife, Dee Hill Bennett, preceded him in death in April.

Amazing grace! (how sweet
That sav'd a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.
'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears reliev'd;
How precious did that grace appear,
The hour I first believ'd!
Thro' many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
'Tis grace has brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.
The Lord has promis'd good to me,
His word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.
Yes, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease;
I shall possess, within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.
The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine;
But God, who call'd me here below,
Will be forever mine.
