Brian Barnard - Board Member
Oregon native Brian Barnard is from Newport, Oregon, attending local schools but also receiving his diploma as a home-schooled student. Following his graduation, he joined the United States Marine Corps.
After traveling around the country in a manufacturing career as a single father, he moved back to the Oregon coast. He met and married his wife Lisa Fassler, and they are the new owners of the Florence Grocery Outlet, close to where they each had been raised.
Brian joined the Board recently and commented “With the large amount of military retirees in the community I feel it is and will be a good way to give back.”
