Michael Bennett: Nov. 29, 2000 – July 13, 2022
Michael (“Mike” or “Mikey”) Bennett was born on Nov. 29, 2000, in Casper, Wyoming. He was a loving son to David and Crystal Bennett; loving brother to Michelle Bennett, Talon Focke, Sean Martinez and Ray Powell; loving uncle to Sarah, Brexley, Sawyer and Braxton; and loving grandson, nephew and cousin to many.
Michael was born in Casper, Wyoming, but moved to Douglas, Georgia, for a few years to live close to his paternal grandparents. He moved back to Casper, Wyoming, where he then lived out the rest of his life.
Michael loved the outdoors, camping, and music (especially Five Finger Death Punch), was an avid marksman, and most of all loved spending time with his brothers and sister and playing with his nieces and nephews. He was very caring and a loving person. He had a quirky sense of humor and loved playing practical jokes. He absolutely loved Halloween and everything that went with it. Most of all, he loved getting tattoos and DoorDashing.
There are so many fond memories of Michael. Our favorites include: weekly dirty joke telling; mean pranks which included scaring Mom with a clown mask any chance he got (she is deathly afraid of clowns); tying hair ties around the sprayer in the kitchen, lying in wait for the next victim to turn on the kitchen sink; jumping from any dark place to get a rise out of any unexpecting person; and, of course, his favorite, putting on any scary mask and scaring his nieces and nephews to keep them out of his room, preventing them from touching his stuff. Michael, you are truly loved and you will be missed greatly.
