LEWISTON – Kedmond Webster Bennett, also known as Ked, KW, OMB and Papa, went home to be with the Lord on Tuesday, Feb. 17.

He was born in Alna to Robert and Delia Bennett on Sept. 14, 1921. He graduated Valedictorian from Casco High School in 1940. After Ked graduated from Brown-Sharp Tool & Die, he joined the U.S. Air Force and then the U.S. Army where he served during World War II in the Pacific Islands.

Anyone who shook hands with Ked will never forget him, his sense of humor, or how he always put others before himself. A master electrician through June 2008, he also had been a machinist and general contractor.
