Obituary for Charles R. Bennett Sr.

Charles R. Bennett, Sr. formerly of Melrose, MA, age 95, passed away peacefully on September 30, 2020 at his home in Wallingford, CT surrounded by his loving family. He previously resided on Grove Street, in  Windsor Locks for 36 years. He was predeceased by his beloved wife Phyllis (Rossi) Bennett.
Born in Medford, MA on October 4, 1924, he was the son of the late Albert Bennett and Sophie (Landry) Bennett. Charlie was a graduate of Medford High School Class of 1942 where he was an outstanding student-athlete excelling in schoolboy football, hockey, and baseball. Upon graduation, he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps and served honorably in World War II. Upon returning home, he was employed for forty years as a warehouse supervisor at the First National Warehouse in Somerville, MA. During his retirement years, Charlie became an avid golfer, enjoyed traveling, visiting his grandchildren and enjoying family and friends of which he had many.  Charlie enjoyed watching all sports but especially enjoyed rooting for the Sox, Bruins, and Patriots. He was thankful he saw them win a World Series. Charlie was a devout Catholic and a longtime member of the Knights of Columbus.
Charlie was a blessing to his family and all who knew him. He will be forever missed and in our hearts. Surviving Charles are his three beloved children, Charles R. Bennett, Jr and his wife Maureen of Arlington MA, Nancy Bennett of Wallingford, CT and Anne Marie Fortuna and her partner William Camire of Wallingford, CT, his four wonderful grandchildren, whom he loved dearly, Timothy and his wife Danielle of Andover, MA, Christopher and his wife Kelly of Arlington, MA, Allison Fortuna of Escondido, CA and Jillian Fortuna of Tewksbury, MA.

Charlie was a kind and giving gentleman. He served his God, his country, his family and his neighbors, with a gentle self-deprecating style that belied the many achievements that he visited on the world. We knew him mostly in his later years in Windsor Locks, where he graciously helped us with flights from Bradley, always willing, always gentle, always thoughtful, anxious to learn of our family's latest doings. We treasure the memories of those years, when this fine man loved to help, in the process telling us the latest about his golf scores and travels. Men like this are best that America can produce, and we know that there was a long line of family, friends, neighbors and fellow workers, behind Phyllis, joyfully welcoming him to his eternal reward. Well done, O good and faithful servant.
