BENNETT, Dr. James Michael Bennett   -  Passed away on February 17, 2023 in Peterborough Ontario at the age of 83.


He is survived by his wife Sandy, his four children Erin Bennett, Jeanne Bennett, Martha Bennett, & Rhys Bennett, and his stepdaughters Sherry & Heidi, his five siblings Bill Bennett, Kerry Sharp, Bishop Robert Bennett, Sally Bennett, and Neil Bennett, his eleven grandchildren and one great grandson. 


Mike was such an accomplished person. He was a Professor Emeritus, a true scholar, an author, researcher and Dean.


He pioneered online course development, accreditation, and delivery in Computer Science, and Engineering and was a gifted lecturer and teacher.  


He set an example of hard work, honesty, love & caring of others for his children and grandchildren, academic colleagues, and students.

He was a man of faith and humility and truly lived what he believed. As is often the case, the brightest among us are often the most humble.  


Everyone loved Mike with his dry and witty humor and outstanding intellect.  He was so well read & well-travelled with  exceptional knowledge of classical music, the sciences, history, geography, seven languages, and literature.  He will be remembered for his love of his family, the numerous lives that he touched, and the kind and generous life that he lived.   

Rest in peace my love. 


A private gathering of immediate family will honor this truly amazing man.
