Notes:  Frank Vernon Carr was born 28 Feb 1919 in Glendale, Los Angeles, California.  His parents were Vernon Albert Carr and Lillian Mae Olson.  His older siblings were Evelyn Mary, born in Oct 1910 and James Douglas, born in Oct 1914.  His parents were fruit ranchers.
In the 1920 USA census, Frank Carr was living with his family on a farm or ranch on Cypress Avenue in Covina, Los Angeles County, California.  His father Vernon was an orange rancher.  The family owned their residence with a mortgage.  The children were Evelyn, 9, James, 5, both attending school, and Frank, 10 months.

Sometime during the 1920's Frank's family moved to Littlerock in the Antelope Valley north of the San Gabriel Mountains.  The address given variously in the voter registration records was Sec 14, T5N, R10W, or Ave. U8, or 34125 N. 77th St. E.  It was on the Pearblossom Highway.  They established an orchard that included pears and peaches, and there was a packing shed.  The grape arbor bore grapes and provided shade in the summer heat.

In the 1930 USA census, Frank was living with his family in Antelope Twp., Los Angeles, California.  They owned their fruit ranch and had a radio set.  His father Vernon was listed as a fruit farmer.  The children were Evelyn M., 19, James E., 15, and Frank V., 11.  James and Frank attended school.

Frank Carr, known as "Frankie" attended Antelope Valley High School, Lancaster, California, and is pictured in the 1936 year book, The Yucca, as a senior.  He was the Student Body Treasurer and played basketball.

Frank, 20, married Inez Grace Dyer, 19, on 28 Feb 1940 in Los Angeles County, California.  In the 1940 U.S. census, Frank and Inez were living at 1011 N. Spazier Avenue, Burbank, Los Angeles, California.  They owned their home with a value of $4,000.  Frank had completed 2 years of college and was an office clerk for an aircraft manufacturing firm.  He had earned $950 in the prior year.  Inez had completed one year of high school.

Frank registered for the WWII draft on 16 Oct 1940.  He was living in Burbank with his wife Inez and employed by Lockheed Aircraft.  He was described as 5'10" tall, 160 lbs., of light complexion with blue eyes and brown hair.  He enlisted in the U.S. Army on 18 Jul 1944, and described his occupation at the time as a foreman in manufacturing.

Frank and Inez had one son, Frank Steven Carr.  The family moved to Littlerock in the Antelope Valley of Los Angeles County, where Frank helped manage the family's pear ranch.  In 1948 and 1950, Frank and Inez were registered as Republicans living at 82nd st East, Littlerock.  In 1952 their address was 138 hwy near 75 st.  Frank was a member of the Board of Directors for the Littlerock Creek Irrigation District and was elected (or re-elected?) without opposition in Nov 1983.

Frank's wife Inez died 26 Jan 1983 in Los Angeles County, California.  She is buried in the Desert Lawn Memorial Park, Palmdale, California.

On 28 Jun 1983, Frank married Dorothy Eleanor Barrett in Stateline, Nevada.  By 1985 Frank and Dorothy had moved to Idaho, residing at 19540 Capehorn Rd., Bayview.  Frank died in 1917 and is buried in the Coeur d'Alene Memorial Gardens, Coeur d'Alene, Kootenai, Idaho.
