Lee served in the police and he specialized in child abuse cases. That sounds even weirder, if to take into consideration the fact, that his son Chester was sexually molested by a senior schoolmate. “I was beaten and did the things I didn’t want to do”, the musician later opened up in his interview.

Chester’s relationships with his father have never been close, and that was the reason of the singer’s ruined mental health. He didn’t dare to speak with his father about his offender, and he tried to cope with his emotions through writing songs, drawing and taking lots of various drugs. “In my teens I tried numerous substances”, the singer confessed many years later.

Lee was silent at his son’s funeral, and he doesn’t want to speak about Bennington’s death now. He still resides in Phoenix, AZ, the place, where he grew up in the family of his parents, Chester Carl Bennington and Marjorie Marie John. The man is single as for now, but he was married twice previously. His first wife was Gloria Benson and he had a son Brian and a daughter Rene with her. His second wife was Susan Johnson, and he had the only son Chester with her.
