Larry L. Davis
Larry L. DavisFlagLarry L. Davis, 89 of Richwood, went home to be with the Lord Wednesday, Oct. 20, 2021 at The Ohio State University Medical Center.

He was born April 29, 1932 in Marion to the late Laurence and Leafa (Hoover) Davis. He was also preceded in death by a sister, Eva LeMasters, an infant sister, Janice, and the love of his life, Nancy L. (Hines) Davis, whom he married on February 26, 1956 at the Bethel Church. She died July 18, 2011 after 55 years of marriage.

A 1950 graduate of Richwood High School, he served our nation with the U.S. Army during the Korean Conflict. He was a life-long farmer as well as having been an electrician for Rockwell International.

A true believer in Jesus Christ, Larry was a faithful member and pillar of the Richwood Community United Calvary Church. He was a lay minister who filled in for various vacationing pastors in the area. The way he lived his life was an inspiration to others and he never had a bad word to say about anyone. Larry was always giving. Nothing made him happier than being surrounded by his family.

He is survived by a son, Rex (Julie) Davis, Richwood; a daughter, Laura (Jeff) Phipps, Plain City; grandchildren, Adam (Tabby) Davis, Mike Cochran, Jacob Phipps, Grant Phipps, brothers and sisters-in-law, Jim (Rita) Hines, Hilliard; Kathy Hines, Kenton; Diane Hines, Richwood; Anna Mae Hines, Marysville; Miriam Hines, Richwood; and several nieces and nephews.

Funeral services will be Sunday, October 24, 2021 at 3:00 PM at the Richwood Community United Calvary Church with Pastor David Hudson officiating. Burial will follow in Claibourne Cemetery. Friends may call two hours prior to the service, beginning at 1:00 PM.

Memorial Gifts may be made to the Richwood Community United Calvary Church at P.O. Box 173 Richwood, Ohio 43344.

Larry Davis is my Mentor. I love Jesus Christ today because of his life example, his firm confidence in the Gospel and his persistent love for me. My love of tractor pulls, farming, and my understanding of the awesomeness of forgiveness came from him. He patiently taught me to drive 'three on the tree' in his pickup truck and taught me to drive a tractor when I was about 10 years old; he even held his tongue when I drove his riding lawn mower as my personal ATV all summer. Larry is a gem that I will always thank God for. He ran the race and he finished well! 2 Timothy 4:7 "I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith."

God fearing, family loving, patriotic, man of God.  He was a pillar in the church.  Always had a testimony and a catchy phrase that would stick with you.  He lived a faithful life. He is present with the Lord now and I pray and trust that gives the family much needed comfort and grace.

Rex and Laura along with your families:  I want to send my heartfelt sympathy.  Larry along with Nancy and each of you have been dear neighbors for 40 years. Each day over the past decade I would look across the front yard towards Larry’s house for the open garage door.  If it was up, then I knew he was alright.  I loved to hear his stories when I would walk across the road to share baked items or if I saw him sitting in his garage watching the world drive by.  I will deeply miss him along with his texts on my phone.  Thank you all for sharing him.

Dear family and friends of Larry.
On behalf of my family we send our deepest sympathy to you all.
It was Larry Davis who at the age of 17 introduced my mom and dad Ray and Janet  Webb  at the Richwood Lake for the very first time.70 years ago.
My parents loved Larry dearly and have always spoke so highly of the wonderful man he was to all.
I will always remember him as a man who put the Lord 1st in his life. Was blessed to know him.
I remember dad taking me to their farm as a young boy many times to go Rabbit hunting.

What a celebration there is in Heaven tonight.
May you all feel the Peace and love that passes all understanding at this time.
Sending love hugs and prayers for you all.
In Christ love.
The Webb’s

We met Larry at the Richwood Civic Center in 2012 and immediately became good friends. He was such a dear, kind man. He truly loved God and people. We enjoyed several visits in his home and many phone calls. His favorite hymn was When the Roll Is Called Up Yonder and he always wanted us to sing it each time we visited; even over the phone. Larry will indeed be missed. Our loss is Heaven’s gain. Rex, Julie and family, our prayers and thoughts are with you. May God bless and comfort your hearts.
