Their family has always been active in community organizations, youth sports and education—Gary is a current member of the Young Men’s Institute and the Cardinal Newman Dad’s Club.
Gary earned a BA Degree from Chico State University and a teaching credential from University of California, Davis. Since 1987, he has been an instructor for the Santa Rosa Junior College Law Enforcement Training Center and is also an instructor in the areas of community policing, community relations, sexual harassment, cultural diversity, victimology and firearms.
Both he and Kathy enjoy traveling and spending time at their family retreats in Lake Tahoe and Lassen National Park. They love outdoor sports and spending time with their family, friends and of course, their two lovely granddaughters Stella and Lena, and their black and white cocker spaniel, Vinny.
