Sunday, April 19, 2020, Ron Bennett’s earthly spirit went on to the next journey.

Ron requested the cause of death be listed as WO for “worn out.” He didn’t expect to live forever and he figured, “if your heart, lungs, liver, and the rest get you to 88 years old, don’t single one of them out as the culprit, they were a team.”

Ron was born at home in Albany County, New York, on August 28, 1931. He grew up in a rural setting with knowledge of horses, cattle, and other livestock. Nevertheless he had enough charm to woo a beautiful girl from town. Her name is Myrna and she became his best friend and wife of 67 years. She’ll continue to live here in Great Falls.

Ron was very proud of making Chief Master Sergeant, the highest enlisted rank in the Air Force.

Ron’s many interests included hunting the mighty elk and chasing sharp tails around central Montana’s coulees.
