Richard Earl Carner, 92, of Terrebonne, Oregon passed away peacefully on September 9, 2017 at Partners In Care Hospice House in Bend, Oregon. Richard is survived by his wife Beryl and his two sons, Melvin and Larry. One son, Michael was lost in 1969 while serving in the US Navy. Richard also has five grandchildren and five great- grand hildren, with two surviving brothers and two sisters. Richard was born in 1925 in Portland, Oregon and raised on a farm close to Battleground, Washington with his six brothers and sisters. When the war with Japan began, Richard joined the Navy and served honorably until he was discharged in 1946. He then worked several jobs until he began his employment with Consolidated Freightways where he remained there for 35 years. Richard married Beryl Edna Allen in Battle Ground, Washington on August 20, 1948 and they just celebrated their 69th anniversary. After retirement Richard golfed, fished and enjoyed the good life surrounded by good friends and family. He truly was “papa san” to all of his younger brothers and sisters. His only grief was the loss of a son at such an early age. A memorial service is planned for 11:00 am on Wednesday, September the 20th at the Zion Lutheran Church in Redmond, Oregon, 1113 SW Black Butte Blvd, with a military interment at Crescent Grove Cemetery on September 23 at 11:00am in Tigard, Oregon.
