PRESQUE ISLE – Arthur Allan “Chip” Bennett, 44, went home to be with his Lord Dec. 7, 2008, at his home after a long, courageous battle with cancer. Chip was born Sept. 24, 1964, son of Allan Arthur and Kathleen Norberg Bennett. Chip grew up in Presque Isle and loved his home. Chip could make friends wherever he went and enjoyed calling people by their name. He had a special interest, his church, where he contributed in his own way by checking candles and making sure the hymn board was correct. He loved music and could tell you the number of each hymn if you gave him the title. He was a proud member of Evangelical Covenant Church of New Sweden. Chip attended various educational programs, including The Adult Multiple Alternative Center, Caribou, where he is remembered fondly. Chip is survived by his parents; a brother, Richard E. Bennett; an aunt, Ann B. Wight of Presque Isle; and many cousins. He was predeceased by his grandparents, Arthur and Mable Bennett, and Eric and Clara Norberg. Chips family wishes to thank many special friends; his home care nurse, Tim LeCrone; Visiting Nurses of Aroostook and Hospice of Aroostook. A memorial and celebration of Chip’s life will be held 10 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 13, at Evangelical Covenant Church of New Sweden with the Revs. Shelly J. Timber and Timothy P. Stohlberg officiating. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Evangelical Covenant Church of New Sweden, 40 Westmanland Road, New Sweden, ME 04762 or Adult Multiple Alternative Center, P.O. Box 1074, Caribou, ME 04736. Envelopes will be available at the church. Spring internment will be at Jemtland Cemetery, New Sweden.
