Cob attended Broadway Raymond High School and farmed in his younger years. He worked at Scott’s from 1954-1996, TRC for 6 years and also served as a Zane Township Trustee for 12 years. Cob was a member of the East Liberty United Methodist Church and the I.O.O.F. in Middleburg.

On August 14, 1954 in Richmond, IN, he married his wife of over 65 years, Ruth (McCreary) Bennett and she survives in East Liberty. He is also survived by his children, Donna Bennett of Mechanicsburg, Cindy (Tim) Stalling of East Liberty and Dan (Terri) Bennett of East Liberty; grandchildren, Sarah (Joe) Tooker, Sam Goheen, Matt (Sarah Beth) Bennett, Andy (Tori) Bennett, Lisa Cole, Stacey (Alfredo) Sanchez, Stephanie (Dwayne) Little, Ashley Stalling and Chris (Melissa) Stalling; great grandchildren, Samantha, Kelsey, Wyatt, Parker, Dylan, Brody, TJ, Emily, Jackson, Autumn, Braelen, Corbin, Carson, McKenzie, Myles; Harper who is expected in July; his sisters, Martha Jane DeVore of West Jefferson and Edna Hinderer of Plain City; brothers, William (Carolyn) Bennett of Marion and James (Becky) Bennett of Marysville; along with several nieces, nephews and other extended family and friends.
