Obituary of Verdon Bennett

Please share a memory of Verdon to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

It was with so much love that Verdon Bennett passed away peacefully at home in Okotoks, Alberta on April 3, 2024 at the age of  73.

Verdon has been surrounded by his entire family for the last weeks and lost his courageous battle with cancer, with his loving wife, Inez, holding his hand and his family close by his side - just the way he envisioned it! 

He was born in Irishtown, Newfoundland on July 25, 1950, where he and Inez met as teenagers.  They were married in 1969 and started their happily ever after in Irishtown which they continued when they moved west in 1994.

Verdon leaves behind his children Tonya (Allen), Shannon (Christine), Jonathan (Angela); his grandchildren Joshua, Emily (Ross), Carlee and AJ and step-grandchildren Josh, Alex (Katelyn, Noah, Theo), Carter (Jenn) and Zackary (Allie, Austin, Walker).

Loved by many, Verdon will be forever remembered by his brothers Gordon and Fred (Hilda); sisters Ruby, Ruth (George) and Alice (Bill); brothers-in-law Bill (Leen), Ralph, Fred (Judy), Ronald (Irene) and Clarence (Beryl); sisters-in-law Isabel (Kev), Emma (Gene), Helen (Randy), Laverne, Marie and Shirley and many dear nieces, nephews and friends.

Verdon was preceded in death by his daughter Sonya, his parents William (Bill) and Delilah (Blanche nee Anderson), parents-in-law Larry and Vonnie Byrne, brothers Cecil (Florence), Will, Les, Dave (Melissa), Alec, his sister Lil (Coiley), his sisters-in law Maisie, Bridgie (Andy), and Vinnie and his brother-in-law Leo.

A celebration of life will held in Newfoundland on May 25, 2024. 

The family asks that in lieu of flowers or gifts that you “take your candle and go light your world” by performing an act of kindness towards someone in need in his honor.

He will be forever loved and terribly missed by each of us.  We will hold his love for us close forever and always.

Special thanks to Dr. Jolene Haws, Dr. Sarah Feaver, the staff at High River General Hospital and all of the other wonderful health care professionals who have been so supportive.
