Chairman Carl Richard von Bargen-John Bidwell Parlor #21
I graduated from San Jose State University in 1991 with a BS in Finance and Humanities with a minor in Engineering. I worked for Microdyne as a Manufacturing Manager and eventually became the Western Region Manufacturing Manager before joining West Coast Engineering as an Executive Vice President.
I retired in 2002 and moved to Oroville, CA. I joined Native Sons of the Golden West in 2005 and became active locally. In 2014 I successfully campaigned to become a Grand Trustee and maintained that position until I became a member of the Grand Parlor Finance Committee in 2018, a position I still maintain today. I became a Director of Historical Preservation Foundation in 2019 for a three year appointment.
