It is with heavy hearts that we are writing to inform you all of the passing of our long time friend
He began working at Weschester County Airport in 1968 for Jerry Mason at Aircraft Electronics.
In the mid-1980's Aircraft Electronics was sold to what would become Empire Avionics Corp.
He had been in the same job since the beginning.
An unheard of accomplishment in this day and age. Over many decades
his experience and dedication has touched an unbelievable number of people.
As we went through the list of contacts,
we were amazed by the sheer number of people who interacted with him on a regular basis.
Having been affectionately known by some as "Danny Bennett, Dan Dan the radio man,
Mr. B, DB, Mr Bennett" ,he was a fixture on the field for over four decades.
His knowledge, experience, and calm demeanor will be sorely missed.
A kind note from the family of Dan Bennett to friends and members of WAMA:
