GEORGE F. BARENCHI.
George F. Barenchi, one of the best known and most successful building contractors of this section of the state,
actively engaged in the building trades since the days of his youth and for the past fifteen years a contractor
along this line at Vallejo, is a native son of California and all his life has been spent in this state. He was
born at Duncans Mills, in Sonoma county, August 25, 1886, and is a son of Frank and Annie Barenchi, both of whom
came to California in the days of their youth and were here married. They were members of the Roman Catholic church
and their children were reared in that faith. George F. Barenchi received his schooling in the convent school and
as a boy began to learn the trade of carpenter, being apprenticed to a building contractor in San Francisco.
Upon completing his trade Mr. Barenchi worked as a journeyman carpenter at San Francisco for some time and then
came to Vallejo, where he was employed as a carpenter until in 1911, when he became engaged in business as a builder
on his own account and has since been thus engaged in that city, during this period having erected more houses
and important buildings there and in that neighborhood than any other contractor in his line. Among the important
buildings thus erected by him may be mentioned the Knights of Pythias building, the Fisch & Higgins building,
the Bernheim building, the General Hospital building, the Magistrini building, the plant of the Maid of California
Milk Company, the Dannenbaum building, the public school building in South Vallejo, the new building of the lodge
of the Improved Order of Red Men and the Gus Rosenberg building.
George F. Barenchi married Miss Etta Lynch, and they have two daughters, Catherine and Frances. Mr. and Mrs. Barenchi
are republicans, and Mr. Barenchi is a member of the local parlor of the Native Sons of the Golden West and of
the lodges of the Elks and the Red Men. He is an active member of the Chamber of Commerce and is also affiliated
with the True Sportsmen's Club and the allied gun club of that organization.
