Amos  Bennett


Husband, father, veteran, and artist left us this week to be with our Heavenly Father. Amos Monroe Bennett was the third of his namesake in a long legacy of wonderful men.
He moved from Missouri to Orange, Texas with his family in the 1940's. At the age of 18, he joined the Army and was stationed at Bon Folder, Germany. Returning to the United States as a disabled veteran in 1958, he was stationed at Fort Hood in Texas. On a chance meeting, in April 1959, their legacy began, meeting Deena Pierce at a small diner "Papa Coles," in McGregor, Texas. They married on Jan. 20, 1960. Completing his military service through civil service from 1964 to 1979, he retired and became a "jack of all trades." Amos had a love for woodworking and has created many masterpieces which will be displayed at his Irish Wake that will be held at 1 p.m. Sunday, May 12, 2019 at his residence, 652 SW CR 1000, Corsicana, TX 75110. He was preceded in death by his father, Baxter Bennett and mother, Alta Reba Dean; sisters, Virginia Birch and Kayron Johnson and brother, William Baxter Bennett.
He is survived by his wife, Deena Bennett and brother Albert Dean Bennett. His legacy continues with two daughters, Dorena A. Boyd and husband Dean of Friendswood and Sherra E. McGaha and husband Ronny of Corsicana; six grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren, Tiffany Castillo married to Dan, children, Ethan Bennett, Aaron Bennett, and Logan Castillo; Jennifer Hill married to Jacob, children Jaycie, Jackson and Jayleigh; Amanda Callaway married to Chris, child, Maggie; Steffany Bowling married to Josh, children, Josh, Jr, Brett, and Baxter; Rebekah Sanchez married to Franky, children, Landen, Tyler, and Catherine; and grandchild Ryan McGaha.
Family would prefer donations in-leu of flowers be sent to a Disabled Veteran's or M.D.Anderson Cancer Hospital.

I remember the games of canasta as a child and watching the super bowl at your home in Phoenix. Uncle Amos was always wonderful to me. He will be missed.
