In addition to loving police work, Tim was an avid model railroad enthusiast, and built an HO scale model of the Jersey shore area (his favorite beach location). He began playing bagpipes in 1999 and was a member of the Philadelphia Police and Fire Pipes & Drums. Tim loved traveling and had been to Germany, the Netherlands, Paris, London and Bermuda. Tim was raised Roman Catholic but later joined the First United Methodist church in Perkasie. He was a gourmet cook and had a fabulous sense of humor!
Tim was born on 11/5/62 and he grew up in South Philadelphia. He played football and was on the All-star Catholic team. He attended Edinboro University of PA where he earned an Associate Degree in Criminology - Tim had to leave the university in his 3rd year due to the sudden death of his father. He returned to Philadelphia to help out his mom and attended Temple's Police Academy. He was then hired by Warrington PD. Tim was also in the Army Reserves and served in Germany during the first Gulf War as a Military Police sergeant.
Timothy J. Bennett was a dedicated police officer with 19 years of service with the Warrington Township Police Department. He passed suddenly in 2009. His greatest job was being a father and planning a future for his son Ian, one that included a college education.
Tim married his wife Kathy in 1993 and in 2004 they were fortunate to adopt a baby boy, named Ian. Tim loved being a dad. On his days off from work he and Ian had "Daddy Days" where they would go exploring, playing in parks, visiting Philadelphia, and having fun. Tim loved his wife, his son, his community, and his country. And we miss him!!
