He is a Founding Member and President of Toys for the Troops’ Kids, a non-profit charitable organization that provides toys to the kids of our military service members during Christmas.

Bret lived in the North Sacramento area until the age of 12 before he moved to Citrus Heights in 1973 when his father took a job at the then recently opened Sunrise Mall. He is a member of Heights Church in Citrus Heights where he has served as the Team Leader for Security.
