William Winfield Crippen is the latest of at least seven area pioneering funeral directors that I've found buried at Grand View Memorial Park.
Mr. Crippen was born in Iowa on December 26, 1884 and passed away in Los Angeles on March 10, 1956. He is entombed in the Great Mausoleum along with his father, Charles (1855-1937) and his wife Ethel, who passed away in 1988 at the age of 101.
His obituary was published in The Los Angeles Times on March 12, 1956, which notes that his arrangements were handled by the mortuary he founded:
Grand View Memorial Park's West Mausoleum
Note: This post is also a submission for the Graveyard Rabbit Carnival July Obituary Challenge. The rules being: locate a grave and then its corresponding obituary, or vice versa, and post our findings. In this case, I found the crypt first (while documenting notables in the mausoleum for a local history book project) then looked up the obit at the library.
