Obituary for David Wayne Bennett

David Wayne Bennett was born May 26, 1952 to A. B. and Elwanda Curry Bennett in Gatesville, TX. He passed away on Sunday, Easter morning at Sunrise, March 31, 2024, at the age of 71 at his home with family. What a glorious home going.


The Bennett Family relocated to Leesville in 1963 from Gatesville, where his dad transferred from Civil Service at Fort Hood to Fort Polk and raised his family in Vernon Parish.


David was a master electrician and contractor. He loved operating his heavy equipment and clearing land. In the 80's and 90's, he was superintendent over government housing maintenance contracts at Fort Polk for Emerald Maintenance and Crimson Enterprise. Also, David owned and managed Iron Mountain Recycling before retirement in 2012.


David was preceded in death by his parents, Alexander Bethel Bennett, Jr. and Elwanda Curry Bennett, his brother, John Phillip Bennett, and grandparents.


He is survived by his wife, Cathy Porter Bennett, son, Troy Wayne Bennett of Buna, TX, and grandsons Greyson Wayne Bennett and Garrett Anthony Bennett. Sister, Robbie Bennett Hanna of Los Angeles, CA.

Numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins


In closing, a very special thanks and blessings to the staff and nurses at Hospice of Leesville. Also, we are especially grateful to Brian and Lindy Todd, Terri and Nick Bowles, Carol Weaver, and Norma Gass for all the love, care and compassion shown during these long difficult months.
