Kenneth G. Bennett, 80, insurance executive

March 25, 1998

Kenneth G. Bennett, who rose from an office boy to become senior vice president of the Maryland division of the Insurance Company of North America, died Thursday of Parkinson's disease at home in Naples, Fla. The former Towson resident was 80.

He started his 50-year career with the insurer, now the CIGNA Corp., as an office boy while attending St. John's College in Annapolis. He retired in 1988.

Mr. Bennett, a native Baltimorean, was a 1935 graduate of City College and an Army intelligence officer during World War II.

He was a member of the Annapolis Yacht Club and a charter member of the Businessman's Club of the old Central YMCA on Franklin Street.

Plans for a memorial service on the Eastern Shore are incomplete.

He is survived by his wife of 20 years, the former Patricia Carruso of Naples; a nephew, Richard D. Bennett of Ruxton; and a niece, Jacqueline L. Bennett of Frankfurt, Germany.
