Kirk D. Bennett

            Kirk Douglas Bennett, son of Doyle and Audrey Ames Bennett, was born August 31, 1958, at Oelwein, Iowa. He attended school in Oelwein and West Union and received his G.E.D. from Northeast Iowa Technical Institute at Calmar. He served with the U.S. Marine Corps for two years.

            Kirk was a longtime employee of Riley Construction Co. and, most recently, had been employed by ATEK of New Hampton.

            His death occurred unexpectedly at his home in Hawkeye on Monday, October 10, 2011. He was fifty-three years old and enjoyed riding motorcycles.

            He is survived by one son, Austin Bennett of New Albin; his mother, Audrey Bennett of Independence; two brothers, Marvin (Betty) Bennett of Wellston, Oklahoma and Robert (Darcy) Bennett of Gainesville, Georgia; three sisters, Betty (Sam) Miller of Independence, Barbara (Paul) Hyde of Austin, Texas, and Becky Bennett of Freeburg, Missouri; a special friend, Dixie Harmening; and several nieces and nephews.

            He was preceded in death by his father in 1985, and one brother, Kevin in 1991.

            Private family graveside services will be held at a later date at Elgin Cemetery. Becker-Milnes Funeral Home in Hawkeye is in charge of arrangements.

To my uncle Kirk, I am sad to see you go. You are the only one that seemed to make the time to talk when you saw me. I miss you very much. you were much like a brother to me growing up since you lived with us for some time in our teenage years. I hope you can rest in peace and know that you were loved.
Your niece Vicki

I will miss seeing Kirk at Atek. I didn't know him that well, but he was always cheerful and a great person. I hope he has found peace and my thoughts and prayers go out to his entire family.

There will be two dates on your tombstone. Everyone will read them. But the only thing that matters is the little dash (-) between them. Rest in peace my friend.
