Ronald Bennett Sr., 83, of Livingston, NJ, passed away peacefully Saturday, July 27, 2019.

The family received their relatives and friends at the Quinn-Hopping Funeral Home, 145 East Mt. Pleasant Avenue, Livingston, NJ, on Tuesday, July 30. A service celebrating Ronald’s life was held at the Quinn-Hopping Funeral Home on Wednesday, July 31. Entombment followed at Gate of Heaven Cemetery, East Hanover, NJ.

Born in Newark, NJ, to Edmund and Rose Bennett, Ron was the devoted husband of Marie Bennett; the loving father of Kenneth and Ronald Jr. and his wife, Beth; and the adoring grandfather of four.

Ron’s professional career started at his family’s business, Fluid Packaging, which benefited others who arrived from Italy just as his own parents and uncle had decades earlier. Later, he co-founded Bennett Development, Inc and RK Bennett, LLC real estate companies, both in Lakewood, NJ. Ron also built race cars to compete in, and often dominated the ARDC eastern circuit.

In his later years, he’d often be found improving the homes of a younger generation, ensuring a safe and happy place for them to raise their children. His love, kindness and humor live on in the hearts of all that knew and loved him.

In lieu of flowers, donations in Ronald’s name to the West Essex YMCA, 321 South Livingston Avenue, Livingston, NJ 07039, would be greatly appreciated.
