Leon “Len” Bennett

Leon “Len” Bennett, 83, of Lee’s Summit, MO passed away April 22, 2024. From a young age, Len shared his God-given gifts with the world; as a Scout, serving his country on a US Navy P2-V aircraft, serving the community through numerous civic organizations, starting and leading ministries of all kinds in the church alongside his wife, and most recently in pastoral care as he visited others in the hospital during their time of need.

His love for family, friends, and the community ranked second only to his love for The Lord.

He was preceded in death by his parents John and Edith Bennett, his sister Laneta Belk, and son Brett Bennett.

He is survived and fondly remembered by his best friend of 60 years and wife of 59 3/4 years, Carol Bennett. Sons: Tyler Bennett (Sherri Bennett) of Lee’s Summit; Erik Bennett (Alicia Huffman) of Cary, NC. Grandchildren: Aubrey Cahill (Devon), Austin Bennett, Jacob Hamilton, Abby Hamilton. Great-Grandchildren: Alivia and Colson Cahill.
