Walter Franklin Bennett

 

2nd Timothy 4: 7-8

I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:

Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that “day:” and not to me only but unto all them also that love the appearing.

 

Mr. Walter Franklin Bennett, son of the late Benjamin Franklin Bennett and late Elizabeth Gaddy Bennett was born on March 15, 1953, in Wadesboro, North Carolina.  He answered the call for eternal life on Saturday afternoon, August 19, 2023.

He was known to many as “Frank.”  Frank confessed Christ at an early age and joined Garris Grove Missionary Baptist Church and graduated from Bowman High School Class of 1970.  He worked many years in Manufacturing, later retiring from Triangle Brick Company as machine operator.
