Steven Allan Bennett

October 17, 1960 — December 10, 2022

Mr. Steven Allan Bennett, age 62, a lifelong Laceyville, PA, resident, passed away in the comfort of his home surrounded by his loving family on Saturday, December 10, 2022, after a 9 year battle with cancer.

Steve was born on October 17, 1960, in Meshoppen, PA, a son of Willis Kiethline & Rosalie Ruth Young Bennett. He graduated from the Wyalusing Valley High School a member of the class of 1979. He married the former Linda Jean Campbell on August 4, 1984, in the Skinners Eddy United Methodist Church. They celebrated their 38th anniversary this year.

After high school he started working on the late Dale Bennett’s farm and then worked for a short period at Arrow United before starting his career at Masonite, from where he retired in October of 2014 after 33 years of dedicated service.  

Steve enjoyed 4-wheeling and traveling, especially going on cruises with his wife Linda. He enjoyed sports, especially football and baseball. He enjoyed watching and rooting on his favorite teams: the Pittsburgh Steelers, Penn State, and the Arizona Diamondbacks. He was also a lifelong avid NASCAR fan. He was proud to have fulfilled his lifelong dream of meeting his favorite driver, Mark Martin while on a cross country road trip with his son Kevin in 2016. However some of his happiest times were spent at home sitting on his front porch, overlooking his farm and property that he meticulously maintained. But his greatest joy of all was spending time with his family, especially his two grandsons. He was a loving son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, uncle, and friend and will be missed by all who knew him.
