Building a Park to Honor
All of Butte County's Veterans

A place for families to remember loved ones who never returned home from military service

Next Meeting October 16, 2017

In Memoriam

Stu Shaner

Paul Stewart 'Stu' Shaner
October 4, 1940 - December 13, 2016

The founder of the Oroville Veterans Memorial Park, and relentless advocate for the recognition of Butte County's veterans who lost their lives serving our country, passed away just months before the dedication of the park's Memorial Tile Wall that he worked 16 years to build.

Stu's inspiring enthusiasm is already missed, but his legacy will live on in our park.
