Carl Mallory passed away peacefully at his home in Taft, CA on June 14, 2021.
Carl was born in Bakersfield, CA and grew up in Taft. He graduated from Taft Union High School in 1961, and went on to serve with the Peace Corps for two years after graduation. He was stationed in Colombia. Upon his return, he worked as a bookkeeper for the M.H. Whittier Corporation, retiring from there after 26 years of service. For many years after his official retirement he worked as an instructor at Taft College.
Over the years, he and Ray traveled extensively, particularly to their time-share in Mexico. He also formed an association with St. Andrew's Episcopal Church in Taft, where he served faithfully as a devoted servant to the end of his life. He found there great pleasure in helping others.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Helen and Lee Mallory, his two brothers, Charles and Ed, his ex-wife Beth, and step-son Brian Noland.
He is survived by his brother Doug (and wife, Carol), his sons, Baxter (and wife, Julie) and Aaron, his grandchildren AJ and Evan, as well as his step-children, Sean Noland and April Gleed, his grandchildren Trinity, Collin, Lily, Alex and Ella. And Ray Noland, his life partner of 31 years.
