Michael David (Davy) Bennett passed away peacefully at the VG Hospital in Halifax, NS on Tuesday, Mar 6, 2018 at the age of 78 years, after a short battle with cancer.

Highly respected and admired by friends and family, he was a mentor and role model for many people and touched the hearts of everyone he knew and was loved by all.
