Phillip B. Bennett, Jr., 68, of Middletown entered into eternal rest on Wednesday, April 15, 2020 at UPMC Community General Hospital, Harrisburg.
He was born February 12, 1952 in Annville, PA and was the loving son of Helen J. Colston and the late Phillip B. Bennett, Sr.
His religion was very important to him and he practiced his strong faith by praying and praising Yah daily and giving all glory to His name. By trade he was a skilled carpenter and bridge worker.
Phillip had a great love for music at a very early age and had wonderful talent as an outstanding vocalist and entertainer. He was an accomplished performer for many years with bands such as Park Bench, Humble Gathering, Hurricane Alley, Bush, Afterglow, and with The Stevenson Twins. More recently his passion for music, along with Yah's guidance in Phillip's life journey, he was able to achieve the dream of creating his own recording studio.
In addition to his mother, Phillip is survived by his sons, Phillip Bennett III, Hezahkiah Intrieri, Andonia Bennett, and Jordan Bennett (whom resided with his father); brothers, Glenn Bennett (Teresa), Troy Bennett (Michelle); sister, Doreen Sawyers; six grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; his special Cindy; a host of nieces, nephews and friends. He will be deeply missed by the many who knew and loved him.
There will be a private graveside service at the convenience of the family. A Celebration of Life event will be announced and held at a later date.
Please consider a donation in his memory to the East Middletown Cemetery, for perpetual care. Please make checks out to East Middletown Cemetery Association and send them In care of, Mrs. Brenda Thomas, 170 Market Street, Middletown, PA 17057.
The family has entrusted the Matinchek Funeral Home, 260 E. Main St. Middletown, PA with the funeral arrangements.
