The early years of the Bank of Stockton concluded with a span of father-son leadership. R. E. Wilhoit, elected to the Board in 1894. Having served his community as a County Supervisor, Recorder, City Council President and Board of Education President, R. E. Wilhoit exemplified the Bank of Stockton's philosophy of community involvement and commitment. At the Annual meeting on January 15, 1917, R. E. Wilhoit asked that he be relieved of the duties of President due to ill health, although he would remain on the Board. His son, Eugene L. Wilhoit, served as President from 1917 to 1949, and not only maintained, but augmented the prestige of the Wilhoit name in financial circles. When the Bank of Stockton was frequently referred to as the "Wilhoit Bank," it carried with it a ring of confidence and assurance to Depositors and Stockholders alike. On June 21, 1922, R. E. Wilhoit was seated at his desk at the Bank when he slumped forward, dead of a heart attack. It was a fitting way for him to go, in the environment he loved so well.
