Condolences

The family of Marlowe E. Bennett has received the following condolences.

Dear Mary Ann and Family,


For me, Marlowe was a Boy Scout leader's leader. As a new Boy Scout leader some 18 years ago, I first met Marlowe in the Gamehaven Scout Office and through many periodic lingering conversations I quickly learned from Marlowe that raising kids, showing kindness and respecting everyone you meet are signs of a life well-lived. I was blessed to have known Marlowe.


Brad Treder, Troop 186

I am sad to hear of Marlowe passing. I worked with him at Gamehaven about 15 years ago. He was always there with a smile and helping hand. In an age where true gentleman are rare he was shining example. My thoughts are with your family during this difficult time

From Phil & Mikki Haskins, our condolences go out to Marlowe‘s family. Story to share: My first job at IBM was in purchasing and Marlowe was my/mentor & trainee. First week at IBM , Marlowe & another experienced buyer took me on a trip to Lacrosse WI. As part of my training. We hadn’t left town yet & first stop was the local liquor store. Marlowe asked John and I what we wanted to drink for the day, John said some wine was fine with him, Marlowe said he’d get some beer, how about you Phil, I said I’m ok, Marlowe got out of the car and headed for the liquor store door. About half way ther he turned around got back in the car and proceeded to inform me that this is one thing as representatives of IBM and traveling that we never do! John & Marlowe had a great laugh, I had an indelible & harmless lesson taught, and we proceeded on our way! Marlowe was a great purchasing professional, fantastic mentor and gave me a solid base for my own 33 year career at IBM. As the story indicates he was a great person with a sense of humor as well. All the good he brought to the world to those he touched will always be remembered! Our prayers are with the family!

My condolences to your family on the passing of Marlowe. 


He was certainly a great man and scouter.  There was not a time that we met that he did not greet you with a smile and hardy handshake.  To see him walking the grounds with his pipe was always a calming sign.  He will be truly missed by many. 


Thank you for sharing him with us in scouting for so many years.


Jeff Kranz and family

Sorry to hear this news of Marlow's passing. I knew him through his work at the scout office and greatly appreciated his helpfulness. Kindness and Blessings as you grieve this loss.

I would like to extend my sympathy for the death of your husband.  

Marlowe was a very special man to so many of us who worked with him as volunteers through Gamehaven Boy Scouts.  When ever I walked into the office and he was at the front desk I was always greeted in a very sincere and welcoming manner.  He was always there to help when I was working on the Annual Awards Banquet and many other things.


He was the special person who helped to present me with the Silver Beaver Award...which was his big contribution every year as he pulled all of the information together and kept the committee on task.


Marlowe was always a true "gentleman" in the greatest sense and meaning of the word.


He was be greatly missed and we are all so lucky to have had him in our lives.


Most Sincerely, Marcia Marcoux, Gamehaven Boy Scouts Board and some one lucky to have been one of Marlowe's friends

Marlowe was always a delight to talk to at the Gamehaven office.  He was always willing to share a story and his willingness to man the office on Saturdays was much appreciated!  I will miss seeing and talking with him.

I am saddened to read of Marlowes passing . I , like many, met Marlowe at the scout office and was impressed by his knowledge , efficiency and friendlines .


It was always nice to see he and Mary around the community . He will always be thought of by me as a kind man .

Prayers to Marlowe’s family. I will continue to smile as I think of our many chats and his countless smiles. He will be missed.

Our deepest sympathies and love come to your entire family. Mr. Marlowe was an amazing soul. Every time we visited the scout office on the weekend he was so helpful and would always share stories with my sons. We all looked forward to a story with our visit. He will live on through all of us. May we all live the passion for life that he had and share it with others. 


The Kayfes Family

Our entire family enjoyed our association and friendship with Marlowe through the scout office.  Marlowe always showed kindness and helpfulness and always took an interest in what the boys were doing in scouting.  He helped fit my boys in scout uniforms from Tiger to Eagle.  He assisted me many times in maneuvering through scout books and leadership manuals.  We send our deepest condolences to the family.  He certainly will be missed by many.

my condolences and prayers are with you = Marlowe was a good friend for lots of years in BSA - always appreciated his "sly" humor - may his memory bring you peace!
