Many fond memories from my days at St. Charles were experienced in Msgr. Bennett's classroom. With a stern countenance but twinkle in his eye he led by example. Discipline, honor, respect, humor, faith in Christ, a love of history, appreciation of literature (British, of course), and exacting standards of writing are but some of the qualities and lessons I learned from him. Not one to feign affection, when I succeeded on a Father Bennett assignment I knew I had done well. He was undoubtedly one of the finest teachers I've ever had.

My respect for him was so deep that I named one of my sons "Bennett" in his honor. In typical humble fashion when told of this news he asked, "What on earth did you do THAT for?!" The name Bennett is derived from Benedict, which means "blessed." Although Father was indeed blessed, I know many who feel THEY were blessed by his presence in their lives.
