Charles Bennett Aycock, 70, of Newport News

Charles Bennett Aycock (Weymouth Funeral Home & Crematory)

Charles Bennett Aycock, 70, went to be with God while surrounded by his loved ones on May 20, 2022. He was preceded in death by his mother and father, Doris and Linwood Pollard. He is survived by his best friend and wife, Karen M. Aycock; daughters, Allison Belle and Victoria Aycock and son, Mark Gresik; 2 grandchildren, Nicholas Bennett and Elliott Mae Belle; his soon to be daughter-in-laws, Aimee Sraver and Bekah Purifoy; his brother, Jerry Aycock and wife, Karen; his mother-in-law, Brenda Peters; many extended family members and his special little schnauzer buddy, Mia.

Bennett spent his summers growing up in Smithfield, NC, where he got in the habit of not wanting to wear shoes. He was a member of  the Boys Club when he was younger, where he met his core group of lifelong friends. He graduated from Newport News High School and became part owner of Aycock & Craft Jewelry Store. He then worked at VNG for 15 years. He loved the outdoors, which led him to the last 22 years of owning Aycock’s Lawn Care. He built a great business in his own neighborhood in the Riverside area. He was a very social person and was considered a friend by many.
He loved his wife, children, and grandchildren and bragged about them to anyone he met. He enjoyed eating the best home cooked meals at his mother-in-law’s and spending time with family. He might have been a little addicted to TikTok towards the end, but it was fun to watch him try to keep up with the younger generation.
Bennett, we hope you know how special you made our lives. We will love you forever.
On behalf of Bennett and his family, we would like to sincerely thank Dr. Weiner, the nurses who took such great care of us, and Karen’s entire NICU family who supported us through this difficult time.
A Celebration of Bennett’s Life will be held at 3:00p.m. on Tuesday, May 31, 2022 at Weymouth Funeral Home. The family will receive friends following the service at the funeral home.  In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the American Cancer Society.
