95 Alumni and cousin to Megan Bennett.

State Senator Scott M. Bennett (D-Champaign) passed earlier today surrounded by his wife, family and loved ones at Carle Hospital in Urbana from complications of a large brain tumor.

His wife Stacy released the following statement:

“We are devastated to share that our beloved Scott has passed away. We remain in complete shock because it was all so sudden and unexpected.

“Scott will forever be known for being an extraordinary father, husband, and friend. His quick humor and wit could light up any room he entered. We will miss his stories, the way he could always make people laugh, and his genuine kindness.

“Scott lived a life full of service and constantly looked for ways to lend his time and energy to helping our community and state. He worked tirelessly to find solutions to society’s most pressing issues by finding common ground and compromise. To say he will be greatly missed is an understatement.

“We appreciate the amazing care he received at Carle Foundation Hospital and thank all of the doctors, nurses, and staff who provided Scott with excellent care and support for his family. We are also grateful for the outpouring of love and support. Scott’s impact on our community is very evident.

“At this time, we ask that our privacy is respected as we navigate this difficult time.”

(At this time, the family has requested no flowers and plants. The family will name a charity organization to send donations to honor his memory in the coming days.)

Pretty damn cool

I've looked at this photo almost everyday since the devastating floods in Gibson City. So many have shared photos of the water, the devastation and the aftermath, but this one time and time again stands out to me. And I wanted to share it with you.

Meet Adam Rosendahl. Adam was born and raised in Gibson City. He graduated from GCMS High School in 1998. He's been a member of the Gibson City Police Department since 2006, and he was named Chief of Police for the town in 2017.

Everyone around Gibson City knows and loves Adam and his commitment to the community. He's a great guy with a big heart. He'd do just about anything for anyone and is a true leader for the department and for the town.

When the flood hit, Adam was one of the first ones to help get people out of their flooded homes and onto dry land. No one will ever know exactly how many lives Adam and the other first responders saved that day, but we know there were many who were rescued before the water stole them from our lives.

I think this photo tells so much about the horrors of that day. Only those who were their first-hand can truly understand what happened, but I think this picture gives everyone else a glimpse into that day. I see fear, concern and commitment in this photo. The fear of what was happen with great concern for the community, but also the commitment and drive to make sure everyone was safe and accounted for. For those who call Gibson City home, this was a disaster unlike any other that has affected town. Many lost some, and some lost everything they had, only left with the clothes on their backs.

We are really blessed by the outstanding first responders who came to the rescue. Some were police officers, some were fire fighters, some were just neighbors and citizens who jumped in to help in a dire time of need. Hearing story after story, it's incredible to know that nobody died in the water that day.

While the water has drained and the damage remains, the horror of that day will forever be on the hearts and minds of those the water touched. Some have stories to share, others will never share them.

Gibson City is a strong community where neighbors help neighbors. While the floodwaters brought great pain and tragedy to our community, we've come together in ways few other towns would.

I'm proud to be born and raised in Gibson City because of the helpers and the heroes like Adam. Thanks to everyone who has, continues to, and will help in the days and months to come.


Anyone need a hand?
