April 24, 1915 – Aug. 22, 2013

Ernest Mason Card Jr., one of the founders of Paradise Valley Estates in Fairfield, died there on Aug. 22, 2013, at the age of 98. Known to family and friends as Bud, he is remembered best by PVE neighbors for his iris gardens, bridge playing and ballroom dancing.

Card was born in Tacoma, Wash., on April 24, 1915. He earned his master’s degree in chemical engineering from Columbia University in New York. After serving as a lieutenant colonel in the 6th Army’s Transportation Branch during World War II, he eventually retired as a full colonel from the Army Reserves in 1968.

Before moving to Fairfield in 1997, he and his wife Marion resided in Saratoga for 50 years, where they raised their four daughters and were active in the community. He was a high school district trustee, a docent at Hakone Gardens, a member of the Saratoga Men’s Club and helped establish the sister city program with Mukoshi, Japan.

Most of his professional career was spent at FMC Corp. in San Jose, where he supervised the Central Engineering Laboratories and also served as a personnel manager and product safety manager.

An avid traveler and supporter of student exchanges, Card had toured most of the U.S. and Europe, Scandinavia, Egypt, the Panama Canal, Australia, New Zealand and Japan.

After Marion’s death in 2002, he married Phyllis Anderson of San Francisco, a former high school classmate. She died in 2009.

Card is survived by daughters Carol Moore of Vacaville, Ashley Williams of Punta Gorda, Fla., Janice Parker of Davis and Melinda Dittman of Napa, and sons-in-law John E. Parker Sr. and Dr. Stanley Dittman, as well as grandsons, Derek and Tyler Dittman.

Inurnment with full military honors will be private and is to be conducted next week at Sacramento Valley National Cemetery in Dixon.
