Larry retired after many years as a self-employed masonry contractor. He was a longtime member of the First Presbyterian Church of Irwin, where he faithfully served as an usher. Larry was a member of Shidle Lodge #601 F&AM in Irwin. Larry was part of a large family and showered them all with unconditional love. He was known as “Pappy” to all of his grandchildren, whom he doted on. Larry, who loved to be outside, was a hard worker and always willing to lend a hand to those who needed it. He grew vegetables and fruit trees and spent many hours tinkering with lawn mowers and trucks. Larry was a talented contractor and he built the home that he and Marge lived in for many years. His wonderful sense of humor and his positive attitude will be greatly missed by his family and friends.
Larry’s family will be holding services at a later date. Cremation was private.
