Meet Your Neighbor: Tracy Bennett


Family: I live with my mom and step-dad, Linda and Solomon Washam. (Sol is like a father to me.) I am a widower to my late wife, Melinda Cummins Bennett. I have a wonderful extended family which consists of one sister, two half-sisters, one half-brother, and nine step-sisters.

Occupation: Since September 1996, I have been employed by Family Life, which is a division of CRU, formerly known as Campus Crusade for Christ. Ten of those years I worked as a customer service rep, but for the past eight years, I’ve worked as a development representative.

Volunteer activities: I am a member of Little Rock South Lions Club. I enjoy worshipping and helping out at my church, Bingham Road Baptist.

Hobbies: I enjoy listening and singing traditional and Southern gospel music. Not only am I a licensed minister, I am a licensed ham radio operator. I use my ham radio to monitor and report severe weather. I have a pretty strong Facebook presence, as well.

Three guests at my fantasy dinner: Jesus; my pastor, Roger Brown; and my girlfriend, Susie Neer

Cats or dogs? I love dogs.

Dream vacation destination: I would love to travel to Wyoming or Montana.

Favorite meal or food: Cheeseburger, fries and a Diet Coke.

What fun fact would most people be surprised to learn about you? I am an aspiring auctioneer, and I hope to get my state license before the end of the year. (Note: Tracy will be serving as auctioneer at the April 11 Cowboy Up for Little Rocks South Lions at East End Baptist Church.)


Favorite food or meal: Steak and a baked potato.

Cats or dogs? Dogs.

Favorite athlete or sport: Razorback football.

What fun fact would most people be surprised to learn about you? That I built a home in 1979 on Singley Road by myself, except for the heat and air and the sheetrock. I’ve also had cancer three times.
