In memory of
Arlyn Albert Kravig
Arlyn Albert Kravig Arlyn Albert Kravig passed away on Saturday May 16, 2020 in Palm Springs California. He was born on July 20, 1947 in Karval, Colorado and son to Alvin (Leroy) and Joan Kravig. After growing up in Karval, Colorado Arlyn moved to Los Angeles California after he turned 18. He attended college in North Hollywood and during this time he began working for Anthony Pools and discovered he had a talent for designing and building swimming pools. After a few years with Anthony, he started his own company, Capri Pools and Spas. For 15 years specialized in building on the hillsides of Beverly Hills and Bel Air using cantilever engineering. He was a talented and respected builder whose pools were works of art. Arlyn loved to travel and had many stories of exotic places he had been. We always listened to his stories as if we were in our own version of Second-Hand Lions… He was able to travel the world and loved Europe, Asia, Central America and Mexico. He was most recently planning a trip to Ecuador. He also loved traveling throughout the US and his favorite route to visit family and friends in the Midwest was along the famous Route 66. Arlyn loved a good road trip. Another lesser know fact was his desire to read. He was an avid reader and was never without a book. One of his proudest achievements was reading all eleven volumes of The Story of Civilization by Will and Ariel Durant. The last book he read was Teacher Man by Frank McCourt and he loved it! In the early 1990s Arlyn decided he wanted to go back to college to get his degree. He graduated proudly with a degree in Liberal Arts from California State University. He especially enjoyed learning about Native American culture and in June 2018 he was able to visit Canyon de Chelly National Monument, Arizona with his longtime friend and loving companion Berry Hall. Canyon de Chelly is sacred to the Navajo people and it left an everlasting impression on Arlyn. In the last twenty years Arlyn divided his time between his property in northern California and his home in Palm Springs. He truly had the best of both worlds. He was a true "snow bird" even though he detested that phrase. He will be missed by his many family and friends and is survived by his sisters Kim and Lisa and a multitude of nieces, nephews, and cousins. Arlyn was cremated and there will be a private ceremony with some of his closest friends and family in the mountains he loved.
