Gus "Rick" Bennett, a longtime Macomb County resident, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, July 22, 2020. He was 64 years old.

Rick was born on June 15, 1956 in Detroit, Michigan to Clarence and Emily (Petros) Bennett. He worked for over thirty years as a metal finisher, first at Patmai and later at Becker Orthopedic. Rick met and married the love of his life, Cathy, on June 28, 1998 in Fraser. Together they enjoyed a joyful union for twenty-two years. Outside of his work, Rick loved to play guitar, bowl (he was a proud 300 game bowler), playing basketball, video games with his nephews, watching racing, and all types of sports. Being a fun loving man, Rick loved taking road trips with Cathy, stopping where they pleased to enjoy their time together. Above all, Rick held his family dear to his heart. He truly loved and cherished his entire family. Rick was a truly courageous man who would let nothing stop him, even into the final days of his life. His smile and kindness will truly be missed by all who knew him, but memories of him will continue on in all who loved him.

Rick is the loving husband of Cathy; cherished brother of Dennis (Sharon) Bennett, Gregory (Rebecca) Bennett, and Deborah (Ronald) Lara; beloved uncle of Kristen, Kathyrn, Erin, Emily, Kelly, Allyson, Tracee, Isobel, Eloise, Ryan, Tony, and Alex; and caring great-uncle of Chase, Caitlin, Cori, Sydney, Meredith, Henry, JD, and Britton. He is also survived by his fur babies, India and Shadow. Rick was preceded in death by his parents.

A memorial service will be held on Tuesday, July 28, 2020 at 6pm with a gathering beginning at 5pm at the Faulmann & Walsh Golden Rule Funeral Home, 32814 Utica Road, Fraser, Michigan 48026. We are requiring masks in the funeral home and asking everyone to be patient during the visitation due to social distancing. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be addressed to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital or The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

John and I were so blessed to share many special family celebrations and gatherings with Rick and Cathy because they stayed with us during their visits. Rick was always willing to lend a hand if we needed some help around our house. We needed to furnish a home in Key West so Rick and Cathy drove the truck all the way to Key West and with the help of John's plan decorated our home. It was quite the adventure! Rick was a musician like my son Tony so they would frequently have jam sessions in the basement and of course video game challenges. He faced his health crisis with such bravery and Cathy was the best caregiver and advocate for him. John and I will really miss our "Little Ricky" our nickname for him. May he rest in peace.
