Born at Hamilton, Ontario on 29 April 1860, son of Israel Bennetto (1822-1859) and Philadelophia Hooper (1823-1882), he came to Winnipeg in 1880 and established himself as a photographer, operating until 1906 when he retired from the business and engaged in financial and real estate transactions. He was married to Anna Lauretta Hunter (1861-1929). They had three children: Israel Bennetto (1884-1956), Litta Irene Bennetto (1885-1971, wife of William Reynolds), and Marjorie Doreen Bennetto (1898-1982, wife of M. Edwards), all born in Winnipeg. The family lived at 121 Kate Street from 1893 to 1915, then moved to 100 Niagara Street. He was a member of the Knights of Pythias. He died at Winnipeg on 4 June 1946 and was buried in the Elmwood Cemetery.
