SMMC Board Members

Russ Weed, President

I was born 8/32 in CT and lived in NJ until going to Colgate University. After graduation I served 28 years in USAF as a navigator bombardier in B-47s and B-52s, and as a staff officer. Since then I am doing volunteer work with two veterans groups, the League of Women Voters , Santa Maria Men’s Club and county central committee. I have three sons and five grandchildren. Unfortunately I lost my wife Pachy in 2010.

Miles Dennis, Vice President

I was born at an early age in the Santa Clara Valley.  I picked prunes and cut “cots” as a kit to earn money and started to work “officially”  in 1946 at the age of 16 in a hardware store in Santa Clara.

I’ve spent most of my life working in hardware stores or lumber yards, retiring in 2000 after a stint as a traveling salesman selling fasteners (nails, nuts, bolts, screws, washers, etc.)

Al Colewell, Treasurer

Most of my career was spent working for Applied Magnetics, an electronics manufacturer, in Goleta. I worked my way up from stocking shelves to managing a staff of 35 people. It was a good company to work for and a far cry from the coal mines in rural Kentucky where my father lost his life.

Lloyd Brewer, Secretary

I grew up in Omaha Nebraska and graduated from University of Nebr. in 1963, BS in Mechanical Engineering.   I moved to Downey California where I worked for North American, Rockwell Aerospace doing design work on the Apollo space craft crew module. In 1966 I began working for Lockheed Aircraft Co. doing aircraft structural analysis and was there until retiring in 1996. After retiring from Lockheed I did consulting work converting or modifying Boeing airplanes.

My wife Judy and I have two children, six grandchildren, and two great grandchildren.

I have been a member of the Men’s club since 2010.

Hobbies and interests are gardening, wood working, and flying my 1973 Cessna 182.
