Gary started his career in construction as a teenager in Florida working with his best friend, Robert Bond, and Robert’s father, a concrete company owner. After graduation and playing baseball for a summer, McDonald said goodbye to his parents and five siblings in Florida, when he and Bond joined the Navy.
Toward the end of his four-year tour, Gary was stationed at Lemoore Naval Air Base and met Beverly Nichols, a Fresno girl. They married and decided to settle here where he earned his way through college at Fresno State by pouring patios and doing various construction jobs.
Growing with Fresno
Custom Building Niche
McDonald collaborated with longtime friend and fellow builder Leo Wilson on the Lake Van Ness project which is now regarded as the most prestigious lakefront community in Fresno. Gary has a long history of developing some of the most coveted properties in the Fresno-Clovis area. As Chairman of the Board of Regency Bank and General Manager of its joint venture development agency, he oversaw more than 30 major projects that included in excess of 3,000 residential units.
On a personal note, Gary says staying in Fresno was always the right decision. He and Beverly raised their daughter here and he has found ways to give back to the community. Once a mission pastor in college, Gary also served as a local pastor for several years and has been instrumental in helping start and finance several area churches. Recently, McDonald was co-chairman of the Center City Revitalization Committee and is currently building several inner-city homes in Fresno at cost.
Gary embraces the community he calls home and feels blessed by the many enduring friendships and business relationships he has made over the years.
