Richard (Dick) Bennett

Endowment Fund Committee

Dick is currently retired. In his professional life he was an electrical engineer, computer scientist, lawyer, marketing and sales executive with Lockheed, and business owner of a technology corporation.
Dick and his wife Carol were members of Neighborhood Unitarian Church in Pasadena when Reverend Hannah was a minister there, and they followed her to Studio City. Dick is a member of the Men’s Fellowship and was Service Chairman for that church group. He has helped on the Finance Committee and is now chair of the Endowment Fund Committee.
Dick’s interests are photography (creating photo books of his granddaughters), cooking, reading, exercising, and volunteer work. After retirement he attended Glendale Community College, where he received enough credits for an associate degree in Humanities. He was a docent at the Autry Museum, a Commissioner of Parks and Recreation for the City of Glendale, has tutored homeless families with Family Promise of the Verdugos, and currently is a member of the Board of Directors of the YWCA of Glendale Pasadena.
Carol and Dick live in Glendale. They have one son and two granddaughters and spend a lot of their time helping with the granddaughters while the children’s parents are working.
In his own words, Dick writes, “I have been involved with investing in the stock market and other things for many decades. So, when asked to become a member of the Endowment Committee, I said I would be glad to do so, since it was something I knew a little about.”
