Obituary for Robert (Robin) Sherman Bennett, Jr.

Dr. Robin Bennett passed away peacefully at his home April 20, 2017. A memorial service will be held 2:00 p.m., Sunday, April 23, at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 517 Columbus Ave., Waco.

Robin was born on December 12, 1953, in Waco to Robert Sherman and Nancylu Crosthwait Bennett. He attended Waco schools, graduated from Baylor University and The University of Texas Medical School in Houston. He completed his surgical residency at University of Florida Shands Hospital in Gainesville, Florida. He was a gifted surgeon at Shands and loved his time in the ER, until his own health forced him to retire from surgery. Robin returned to Waco in 1998 and served as a passionate patient care advocate to friends and family who called upon him. He was an avid fly fisherman and other hobbies included wood working, cooking, and spending time with friends.

Robin is preceded in death by his father, Robert Sherman Bennett.

He is survived by his mother, Nancylu Bennett; his brothers, Jamey and wife, Melisa, and niece, Morgan Bennett; Clifton and wife, Caroline, and niece, Michal Bennett; Kenny and wife, Debbie, niece, Katherine, and nephew, Will Bennett; and his godmother, Carol Crosthwait. Robin’s beloved Labrador companion, Baxter, was at his side at his passing. Additionally, Robin is survived by many relatives who he loved dearly.

The family expresses their love and gratitude to Rosalinda Tovar for her loving care and dedication to Robin.

Gifts may be made in his memory to St. Paul’s Episcopal School or Church in lieu of flowers.
