Obituary for Arthur Gallup

Arthur (Art) Gallup of Carlsbad, California passed away on February 28, 2019 at the age of 88. A viewing is scheduled for Wednesday, March 13, 2019 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Oceanside Mortuary. A funeral mass will be celebrated at St. Patrick Catholic Church in Carlsbad on Thursday, March 14, 2019 at 11 a.m., followed by internment at Eternal Hills Cemetery in Oceanside.
He is survived by his wife of 68 years, Dolores; his six children: daughters Patricia, Teresa, Susan and Laurie; and sons Thomas and Steven; eight grandchildren: Tanya, Tim, Jesse, Mathew, Andrew, Mason, Madison and Garrett. Art was born in Texas and later moved to Los Angeles, California as a child during the Great Depression. He attended Fremont High School and later served in the Korean War from 1951 to 1953 in the 17th Infantry Regiment where he saw combat, was wounded and received the Purple Heart and Bronze Service Star.
Art was employed with Pacific Bell (now AT&T) for over 30 years as a drafter, producing designs, floor plans and technical drawings by hand before the advent of specialized software. He continued drafting for the City of Oceanside before finally retiring. Art enjoyed his retirement and spent every morning working on the latest crossword puzzle. He continued to draw (mostly cartoons and character illustrations) and enjoyed spending time with his
children and grandchildren.
