Albert M. Hirner Obituary

Albert M. Hirner, 91, a long time resident of Yuba City, passed away peacefully at his home on August 3, 2017.

Al was born in Hannibal, Missouri, on September 1, 1925. He attended local schools and helped with the family dairy farm.

He enlisted in the United States Marine Corps in 1943, as a crewmember/driver of amphibious tractors and participated in the landing at the battle of Iwo Jima in 1945. He was a proud Marine all his life and regularly attended the annual Iwo Jima reunions.

After his honorable discharge he worked at a tractor company in Robbins, CA. He met his future wife, Marcia Lee, in Robbins and they married in Knights Landing in 1947. They moved to Hannibal, Missouri and had two children, Leslie and Gary.

In 1956, the family moved to Yuba City where Al worked at Marysville Tractor Company. He later worked as a parts manager, and salesman for Inland Tractor. He became a partner in the company and continued in sales. He was well known and respected in the agricultural community.

Al began playing golf in his fifties. He and Marcia joined Plumas Lake Golf Club where they enjoyed many wonderful friends and rounds of golf. He was 90 when he played his last round of golf. Al was also active in the Yuba City Lions Club, the Moose Lodge in Yuba City and in SIRS. He always loved dogs and leaves behind Sadie, Nena, Bubba, and Gidget.

Al was preceded in death by his parents, Albert and Claire Hirner; sister, Wilma Black; wife, Marcia; and son Gary.

He is survived by his loving wife of 7 years, Mona Routzong Hirner; his brother, Robert Hirner; his daughter, Leslie Williams (Jack); grandson, Nicolaus Williams (Lauren); and great-grandson, Graham Williams.

Al was a good, loyal friend and was respected by his peers. He loved his family and worked diligently to provide for them. He loved to talk and tell stories about the Marines, his home in Missouri, Harry Truman, and his golfing and house boating adventures.

The family would like to thank Mona's daughter, Cynde Jones, for her invaluable help these past few months.

Memorial services will be conducted Tuesday, August 15, 2017, at 10:30 am at Ullrey Memorial Chapel. The US Marines will provide Military Honors.
