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.
