Carlton Ernest Crall Obituary

Carlton (Ernie) Crall, 86, of Yuba City, passed away on November 25, 2015, surrounded by his family. Ernie was born on September 12, 1929 to Donald and Lela Crall in Plymouth, Ohio.

Ernie's father was a civilian flight instructor training pilots in the armed forces and in 1933 their family moved to Southern California. Ernie served in the U.S. Navy from 1948 to 1952, where he met his wife, Anne Murray and were married for 63 years.

After graduating from the University of Arizona with a degree in Civil Engineering, Ernie began work in Marysville at Division of Highways, later known as Caltrans, retiring after 33 years.

Like his father, Ernie's passion was flying and he flew his own Cessna for 25 years. He was also a talented artist and created many portraits, drawings and sculptures for family, friends and businesses in the community. When he retired, he continued creating caricatures for fellow retirees. Ernie was also very active in Blood Source, donating over 20 gallons of blood. He loved traveling with family and friends, taking many cruises to Latin America and Europe.

Ernie is survived by his wife Anne Crall; son Barry Crall (Laurie) of Woodbridge, CA; daughters Robin Mitchell (David) of Corona, CA and Debra Givens (Jim) of Yuba City and grandchildren Sean and Tara Mitchell, Maura and Summer Givens and William Keef.

Ernie is preceded in death by his parents and his siblings June Norton, Donald Crall Jr. and Janet Trupp.

A Rosary is planned for Wednesday, December 2, 2015 at 6 pm at Ullrey Memorial Chapel and a Funeral Mass will be held at St. Isidore Catholic Church on Thursday, December 3, 2015 at 1:30 pm. Visitation will be at the Ullrey Memorial Chapel on Wednesday from 5 pm to the Rosary.
