  1. Thank you, Ken. I placed the obit in the Standard Banner hoping more people would see it. He has been developing dementia had move in with me in August. He passed getting dressed here at my home. He always spoke well of you. I think Dad was ready to go and I’m glad he did not have go to the nursing home before that happened. That was his worse fear and I’m glad God allowed a peaceful death. Janice

  2. Janice, I am very sorry to hear of your loss. Larry was a good man. You may not remember me, but I used to work with your Dad, both at Magnavox and at Philips Con. Electronics I had tried to contact him a few years back after he moved to Co. but did not have any luck. I will pass the word to others here that also knew your father. May God be with you and your family in your time of sorrow. Kenneth Booker, Jefferson City, Tn. 37760

  3. Thank you for remembering me and RJ. We certainly appreciate any and all the thoughts and prayers send our way. Janice

  4. Thank you, Teresa. I think the only one left in contact with Dad was Donna. Please be sure to let her and everyone else know. If you send me your address, I can enclose a copy of the eulogy and service card. He has been declining more rapidly since he turned 90. He began having trouble breathing a few months ago and really didn’t want to wear his oxygen 24/7 as ordered. He has been living with me for the past 7 months. We had to take away his car because he was getting lost and I eventually took away his house also. He just wasn’t happy losing his independence and became a little frustrated and grumpy towards the end. He had caught a bad cold last week and was doing a lot of coughing and blowing. On Saturday, he decided to stay in bed all day because he wasn’t feeling well. In the meantime his weight had dropped to 135 lbs. over the past year also. By Sunday morning we checked on him and seemed okay. We went out and ran a few errands and when I got back at 2pm, he was lying in bed, sideways, with everything on and appeared to have fallen back and died. I suppose that’s a peaceful way to go, but a little shocking to find it. Luckily, my housekeeper had returned to pick up additional supplies to clean his house to put up for sale, and we found him together. I thank God for small blessings. Everyone told me the funeral was beautiful and the eulogy I wrote was one of the best they had ever heard. I think he would have liked that. I plan to visit Cincinnati the end of June, if I can find a plot in the place were the other family are buried, or combine him with Mom and Grandma’s site, I plan to do a little service just for family. My email is janschult02@yahoo.com and phone is 719-564-3643. I don’t want anyone to feel obligated–just informed. By the way, I made a board of pictures, and some of those pictures of Christmas was on there. I mentioned in the eulogy that Aunt Carrie always decorated the tree. All the best, Janice

  5. Janice, I am sorry to hear of your dad’s passing. I have very fond memories of your mom & dad. I loved the holidays at Aunt Bernie’s house on Richard Avenue when I was growing up. I will keep you and your family in my prayers during this difficult time for you. Your cousin, Theresa (Buken) Oakley
