Hector Crisanti’s Remains Found in Mudflats of Bay
The vigilance of a grandfather resulted Tuesday forenoon in the recovery of the body of Hector Charles Crisanti, Jr., 15-year-old high school student who was drowned Saturday, November 2, while hunting with his companion, James Schroeder, when their motor-less boat overturned in an arm of San Pablo Bay. Schroeder’s body was recovered the following day, between Sonoma and Petaluma Creek near Tubb’s Island.
Louis Cuneo, the Crisanti boy’s grandfather, went with the boys on that fateful day, but he remained in a hunting cabin, while the boys went after ducks. Since the fatal accident, Mr. Cuneo has been a constant watcher for the body of his grandson, and he was rewarded Tuesday when he came upon the body sunk in the mud, at low tide on the bay shore, not far from the spot where the body of Schroeder was found.
Hector Crisanti’s funeral was held this (Thursday) forenoon at 8:45 from the Keaton Mortuary, thence to St. Raphael’s Church, where mass was said, and interment took place at Mt. Olivet cemetery.
Besides the grandfather and mother, Mr. and Mrs. Louis Cuneo, the boy leaves his mother, Mrs. Pearl Crisanti Corups, and a brother, Donald Crisanti. The deceased was born in California, and was a member of the Junior class of the San Rafael High School.
