Bennett Rex Ogg, age 28, ended his brave and fierce fight with cancer on Monday, June 15, 2020 in Grand Rapids surrounded by his loved ones.
Bennett was born June 28, 1991 in Trenton, Michigan to his mother Dawn Ogg. He was a true warrior. For 14 years, he battled his cancer diagnosis with relentless strength and unwavering resilience. But, most importantly, he lived so fully, surrounded by family and people who loved him deeply. He loved animals, craft beer, the Red Wings, and being the life of the party. He was known for his stubborn and fighting spirit, his sweet and soulful heart, and his loyal friendship.
He will be lovingly remembered by his mother, Dawn Ogg; grandparents Rex and Rebecca (Bolton) Ogg; aunt and uncle James and Susan (Ogg) Foote; cousins, Hunter (Foote) Rohwer, John Foote, Hunter Karczewski, Nathan Foote, and Hayden Foote; and the love of his life, Andrea Smith.
A celebration of life and memorial service for Bennett will be held at Ada Park on Thursday, June 18, 2020 at 5:30pm (1116 Buttrick Ave SE, Ada, MI 49301). The family respectfully asks for no flowers, but if a memorial or gift feels appropriate, donations can be made to the University Of Michigan Rogel Cancer Center (www.rogelcancercenter.org/giving) in Bennett’s name.
