Born in Hamilton, Ontario on 29 April 1860, 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 Annie Lauretta Hunter (1861-?). They had three children: Israel Bennetto Jr. (b 1884), Litta Irene Bennetto (b 1885), and Marjorie Doreen Bennetto (b 1898), all born in Winnipeg. The family lived at 121 Kate Street from 1893 to 1915, then moved to Niagara Street.

He died at Winnipeg on 4 June 1946 and was buried in Elmwood Cemetery.
