Larry A Lee

March 25, 1942 ~ April 16, 2021 (age 79)


Larry A Lee was welcomed into life by his parents, Russel T. and Mary E. Lee. Larry learned the value of hard work early in his life, holding many jobs during his middle and high school years. Larry graduated New Haven High School in 1960, then joined the Marine Corps Reserves, attaining the rank of Corporal. He worked at International Harvester prior to starting the #166 Plumber/Pipefitter apprenticeship, after which he started his 32 year career with Shambaugh & Son. During his Tenure there, Larry supervised many large mechanical projects all over the Midwest. From 1982-2016, Larry and his wife, Mary, also owned and operated two mobile home parks. Upon his retirement from Shambaugh in 2004, Larry bought a small farm in Roanoke, affectionately known as the "Clubhouse" by his grandsons, Jared and Adam, where he taught them love of the outdoors. Larry's greatest joy was watching his grandsons' sporting events, especially St. Charles and Bishop Dwenger football. Larry's sense of adventure was epitomized by his love of all things outdoors and power sports, especially hunting, fast cars, his many motorcycles, which he rode in all 48 lower states and most recently UTV's, truly enjoying the mountain trails which he rode with his friends in Appalachia. Larry is survived by his wife of 57 year, Mary, son Shane (Becky), grandsons, Jared and Adam. He was preceded in death by his beloved and beautiful daughter, Shannon, who died in 2006, as well as his parents. Also surviving are sister Jaclyn (Mike) Stevermer, sisters-in-law, Judy and Ann McLaughlin, Susan Badenhorst, Margaret Williams and brother-in-law, James McLaughlin, as well as many nieces/nephews. Larry's cherished friends, Tish and John Bishop, and their children (Kendra/Kevin Miranda and Adam/Kelsey Bishop) and their families held a special place in his heart. Providing Larry's care at home during his courageous battle with brain cancer were his loving wife, devoted son and care giving angel, Tish. In keeping with Larry's private nature, funeral services will be only for immediate family and a few close friends at Divine Mercy Funeral Home, with burial at Catholic Cemetery.
