      Robert “Bob” Bennett, age 78, passed away peacefully at home on March 16, 2020. He was WTC Environmental Activities Committee Chair from 1997-2012. Bob was a passionate nature enthusiast, trail maintainer, mountain hiker, and environmental activist. Active in many environmental groups both local and national, he initiated the effort to create a Delaware chapter of the Sierra Club shortly after his arrival in 1969. He worked closely for over 40 years with Dorothy Miller, Don Sharpe and other Delaware environmental heroes. In 1990, he defiantly parked his station wagon in front of a bulldozer he caught carrying out an illegal attempt to start demolition of wetlands for an unapproved construction project, an action that caused the Delaware State Senate to commend “his courageous demonstration of commitment to the cause of preserving the integrity of the White Clay Creek Valley.”
