Al Darrell Bennington, 75, of Glencoe, passed away peacefully on November 27, 2020.
Al was born September 21, 1945 in Bemidji to Inez Viola Bennington (Larson) and Albert Walters Bennington. He had a brilliant mind for mechanics and could always be found in his garage working on cars, building trailers and numerous other things. He always had a joke or story for anyone who came over. Blessed with a gift for gab, Al had never met a stranger he couldn’t talk to. He was an Army Veteran and loved to share stories of his time serving in Germany. He could be loud, opinionated, and feisty but most importantly, he was kind. He will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him.
Al is survived by his wife, Elizabeth Bennington; daughter, Darla (JR) Bauman, son, Darrell (Patty) Bennington, grandchildren Sierra Balster and Jonathan “Albert” Bennington, brother Robert Bennington, and sister Mary Bennington. He was preceded in death by his parents, brothers Charles and Eugene, and sister Margaret.
Memorial Mass will be 11:00 a.m., Saturday, August 7, 2021 at St. Philip’s Catholic Church, Bemidji. Family will greet friends one hour prior to the service at the church.
Memorials can be sent to Elizabeth at 1521 Ford Avenue North, Glencoe, MN 55336
