      Obituary

      Robert A. Bennett, 78
      FREEPORT -- Robert Papa Alfred Bennett, of Freeport, passed away on Sunday, April 27, 2008, after battling a long illness.
      He was born on May 31, 1929, in Turner, the son of William Edward Bennett and Georgia Reed Bennett. He was a Freeport High School graduate with Class of 1948, where he met his wife Laura Winslow Bennett and best friend of 59 years.
      Throughout his life he worked at local factories: Casco Laces, George Soule Decoy Shop, H.E. Davis, Freeport Shoe and Eastland Shoe. In later years he worked as a lobsterman which he really enjoyed!
      Papa was a caring and hard working man with many interests and talents. He was always making new and useful things, from toys for his grandchildren or contraptions to catch critters. He enjoyed hunting and fishing of any kind, flying model air planes and setting off bottle rockets. He was an outdoors man. If there was ever anything to be done, he was always there to do it - splitting and stacking wood, riding his lawn mower to mow his field or fixing things around his home.
      Papa is survived by his loving wife, Laura W. Bennett; his children: daughter Bobbie Peters and her husband Stephen, son Tom Bennett and his wife Heidi, son Randal Bennett, daughter Laurie Moon; seven grandchildren, Jason Lavers, Tommy Bennett, Ashley Pine, Andrea Bennett; Darcy Bennett, Nathan Bennett, Jacob Moon; five great-grandchildren; and three brothers, William Edward, Paul Maynard and Leslie Alvin. He was predeceased by his sister, Elaine Maxine Crooker and brother, Alden Webster.
      Papa was an amazing and strong willed man, a loving husband, father and grandfather who will be sadly missed but proudly remembered and always in our hearts.
      At his request, there will be no funeral services. He will be buried in Webster Cemetery in Freeport.
