The Tribune (SLO) - - News -

Carl Vincent Ne­granti, age 94, passed away peace­fully on April 8, 2019 at his ranch in Cam­bria, as­sured of his fam­ily’s love, strength, and grat­i­tude.

A lifelong County res­i­dent, Carl was born on June 15, 1925 at the Ma­ter­nity Hospi­tal in San Luis Obispo. He grew up on Toro Creek in Cayu­cos be­fore mov­ing to the Green Val­ley Ranch, and at­tended Coast Union High School and the Old San Luis Ju­nior College. He mar­ried Mary An­tonette Lo­d­uca in 1952. To­gether, they raised a fam­ily, worked the ranches, and fos­tered life­time friend­ships. Carl was named San Luis Obispo County Cat­tle­man of the Year in 2004, was past pres­i­dent of Ca­balleros de Tolosa, and was a mem­ber of Na­tive Sons of the Golden West - his first an­ces­tor ar­rived in Cal­i­for­nia in 1874.

A re­flec­tion of his Swiss Ital­ian her­itage, Carl was self-pos­sessed, stub­born, and un­am­bigu­ous. He pos­sessed an in­nate abil­ity to de­sign, op­er­ate and build. He founded heavy equip­ment com­pany, Ne­granti Con­struc­tion, with his sons, Jon and Stu­art. His tal­ents ran the gamut from sausage making to metal work, hunt­ing to rop­ing to cat­tle rais­ing, and of course, a good card game. Carl’s self-reliance, work ethic and com­mit­ment to ex­cel­lence is re­flected in his chil­dren, grand­chil­dren and great-grand­chil­dren. Carl’s great­est so­lace in life was his fam­ily, par­tic­u­larly his wife, Mary.

Carl is sur­vived by his wife, Mary; chil­dren An­tonette and Jon (Anna); grand­chil­dren Ben (Rochelle), Sam (Amanda), Kate (Damien), Colter (Heidi), Ash­ley (Luis), Clark, Nick (Katy) and Wade (Alexis); great-grand­chil­dren Au­drey, Mary, Darcy, Sab­rina, Cash, Ace, Beau, Rhett, Cooper, Ce­cilia, Eli, and June; and son-in-law Mark. He was pre­ceded in death by his son, Stu­art (Nina).
