BENNETT- Bret Alan James, died tragically in a car accident on Lakeshore Rd. in Wainfleet on Tuesday, July 7th, 2020 at the age of 25 years. He is survived by mother, Judy Gauthier (Glenn Sharpe), father, Cecil Bennett (Doris "Miki" Shoup), sister, Jess, brothers, Cecil Jr.(Emily Carlson), and Joshua, grandmother, Ellen, niece, Kenzie, and his loving girlfriend, Kelsey. Also survived by several aunts, uncles, and cousins and amazing friends, all of whom loved him dearly. Bret was born in Port Colborne, Ontario and has lived in the area all his life, less a couple of short stints in Winnipeg and Banff. Bret lived his life hard and wanted more than anything to simply enjoy his time on this earth as long as he was here. Bret had a good heart. He was a charmer, a clown, and always the life of the party. Then again, he'd never turned down a good scrap either. He was also a fierce friend and formed lifelong bonds with everyone he met. Bret would do anything for a friend or family member, even giving up his favourite watch to help his kid brother out of a jam. He was an amazing artist, and had a real passion for cooking. Especially for his Nan, which he did often. He will be sorely missed. Cremation has taken place. Due to Covid-19, a celebration of life will be held at a later time.
