The quiet presence of Steven Lloyd Bennett was released from the cruel, disabling disease of cancer on March 19, 2022, and has found spiritual peace.
Steve was born to Thomas and Ruth Bennett on April 24, 1951 in Rock Hill, South Carolina. As the second child of a military family, he was raised across the United States and Germany. Steve was preceded in death by his parents and older brother Michael, and leaves behind his two sisters Patti and Barbara, wife Pam, daughter Morgan and her husband Craig.
After high school, he attended the University of Oklahoma where he received a Master’s Degree in Electrical Engineering. Steve was not only a handy man who could fix any household problem but also a scholar and inventor. He began his career on the campus of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) working for Lockheed Martin and their contributions to the space shuttle. After NASA, Steve and Pam relocated to Bountiful, Utah where he continued his career in defense systems with Sperry Univac. During his tenure with Sperry Univac, Steve co-developed two patents (Titles: Ultra Stable Frequency Apparatus and Random Binary Waveform Encoded Ranging Apparatus). Steve was a life-long student and contributor to his discipline of engineering. The last years of his life were spent in the home he loved and playing golf with his family on the weekend. Steve will be missed deeply by his family and all those who loved him.
A Memorial in his honor will be held at 2:00 p.m. March 29, 2022 at Lindquist’s Bountiful Mortuary 727 North 400 East Bountiful, Utah. Interment will immediately follow the service at Memorial Lakeview Cemetery.
