Obituary – Steven Glenn Bennett

Published 10:53 am Tuesday, December 24, 2019

Steven Glenn Bennett, 42, of Calhoun City, Miss., passed from this life on Friday, Dec. 20, 2019, in Greenville at Delta Regional Medical Center after an extended illness. Steven was born in Oxford on September 27, 1977, to Jerry Lynn Bennett and Rebecca Walker Grier.

Steven spent many seasons of his life behind the wheel of a big rig as a truck driver. When Steven wasn’t transporting goods across the nation, he could be found cruising a field preparing a field for its planting. Steven was an avid outdoorsman, which could be evident by his love for horseback riding, hunting, and fishing. As a member of Lewis Memorial United Methodist, Steven learned about the gift of eternal life, and accepted this gift from his heavenly father.
