The family of Glenn Bennett, one of the two men killed in Sunday’s shooting at the Safeway on Bend’s eastside, is thanking the community for the outpouring of support they have received. They also have revealed a little more about his life.
“We are deeply saddened by the loss of our dear Glenn, a true treasure of a person and a cherished family member,” reads a family statement.
“Glenn was a brother, an uncle, a great uncle, and even a great great uncle. He lived an honest life, he served his country in Korea and served his family and community until the day he moved on from this world. Some people say they would give you the shirt off their back, Glenn did that and more regularly and to an extent that cannot be expressed in words. Glenn was the type of person who would give to anyone in need without a second thought; he truly was kindness and generosity personified.
