Remembering Compton Gault

Compton James Gault Jr., 1944-2018
 Compton Gault graduated from Oakland High School and spent thirty-eight years serving in the United States Army, acheiving the rank of Lieutenant Colonel.  Subsequent to his military career he held a position with the Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District, and was appointed as a Planning Commissioner for the County of Alameda.  As a Commissioner he became involved in the CCPCA, contributing a great deal to our organization and was elected CCPCA President for the year 2004.  By 2007 he had retired and moved to Reno, Nevada with his wife and family, but he continued to be active with the CCPCA, assisting in the organization of our Conferences and conducting education sessions for New Commissioners in the Association.  Compton is fondly remembered for his always jovial, positive and caring attitude.  He passed away in Reno on February 16, 2018.
