Hugh B. Bennett, beloved husband, father, son, brother, uncle, and friend completed his mortal journey on February 10, 2021. He passed away from complications from Coronavirus with the love of his life by his side. His death from this terrible disease leaves a void in our lives and our community.

Hugh spent his life protecting others, as a Salt Lake County Sheriff’s Deputy, a Unified Police Department Officer, and a Court Security Officer at the United States Courthouse. He was a dedicated public servant, an incredible husband, a devoted father, and a friend to everyone he met. To know Hugh was to love him.

Hugh was born on November 9, 1967, in Akron, Ohio to Gwen E. Orr and Hugh L. Bennett. Hugh grew up in Akron and moved to Grace, Idaho in 1987. Shortly after arriving in Grace, he joined the Army. Hugh served honorably in the United States Army from March 1988 through December 1991 with two of those years served overseas in Germany. Hugh joined the Salt Lake County Sherriff in 1995. When the Sheriff’s office transitioned into UPD, he continued on the force until he retired on August 15, 2015. Hugh then began working at the Federal Courthouse as a Court Security Officer. Hugh loved to travel, was an avid reader, and had a passion for firearms. He enjoyed the simple things life had to offer, especially spending time with friends and family.

Hugh is survived by his wife Candelaria “Candy” Bennett, daughter Vanessa Bennett, son Hugh M. Bennett, stepchildren Lisa Grosjean and Andrew Grosjean, his brother Don Bennett (Judy), along with their three children, Zach, Josh, and Ann Bennett. His stepfather Robert “Bob” Orr, stepbrother Ryan Orr (Lorrie), nieces Jenney Bennion, Callie Purrington, and nephew Layne Orr. His aunt Sandy (Dave) Cleveland and family, his beloved mother-in-law, Carmen E. Luzardo-Flores, the Luzardo sisters, their husbands, children, and many nephews and nieces. Hugh is preceded in death by his father, Hugh L. Bennett, and mother, Gwen E. Orr.
