Ernie Corral bw

   Ernie Corral Jr. peacefully entered into rest on Tuesday December 9, 2014 in Manteca, CA.  He was born on April 28, 1969 in French Camp, CA.  Ernie joins his father Ernest Corral, stepfather Danny Limas Jr., grandparents Papa Efren, Mama Mary, Grandma Lola, Grandpa Gilbert and his Tia Rachel Juarez in heaven.
   Ernie was a lifelong resident of Manteca.  He was a very giving and kind hearted person with a gentle soul.  Ernie had an amazing personality and he was always one to make people laugh with his random and corny jokes.  He had a nickname for everyone and he especially loved teasing his friends and family.
   In his younger years, Ernie had a passion for baseball, basketball, football, music and break dancing.  He also had a lifelong passion for drawing and creative writing.  From childhood through adulthood, Ernie displayed his artistic talents by creating unique drawings, short stories and poetry for his family. 
   In his later years, Ernie enjoyed attending Bible study at the Calvary Church with his mother, Tio and Tia.  He was inspired by his grandchildren whom he loved dearly and he enjoyed spending time with his friends and family.  As a Pittsburgh Steelers fan, Ernie loved talking about football with his family as well. 
   Ernie is survived by his loving mother Dee Dee Limas of Manteca, his sister Danielle “Waldo” Limas-Rueda (Adrien Rueda) of Stockton, his children Anthony Steven Cervantez of Manteca (Rebecca Cervantez) and Ernie Michael “Niko” Corral (Danielle Adams) of Manteca, his grandchildren Alizay Cervantez, Aubrey Cervantez and Adam Daniel Corral of Manteca.  In addition, he is survived by his dear friend Sue of Manteca, his cherished pets “Kane” his dog and “Baby” his turtle, and many Tio’s, Tia’s, cousins and friends.   
   Ernie possessed a very unique and larger than life personality.  He will forever be known as the fun, kind and loving big guy with the biggest heart.  He will be greatly missed by all who knew him and loved him.
   P.L. Fry & Son Funeral Home is honored to serve the Corral and Limas families. Viewing will be held on Saturday, December 20, 2014 from 9:00am to 11:00am with a Celebration of Life following at 11:00am at P.L. Fry and Son, 290 North Union Road, Manteca.
