Gifts & Memorial Donations

Larry McDonald, a dedicated and loving husband of 37 years and father, esteemed Army veteran, and retired paralegal, has passed away. Born on January 25, 1950, Larry’s life was marked by unwavering love, sacrifice, and a commitment to serving others.

Having served in the armed forces with honor and valor, Larry exemplified the selflessness and bravery of a true soldier. After retiring from the military, Larry worked in the coal mines for a number of years and then embarked on a successful career as a paralegal, utilizing his skills and knowledge to make a difference in the field of law.

Above all, Larry was a loving husband to Sandy and father to their four children and their respective spouses: Shannon/Erica, Evelyn/Randy, Larry J./Emmanuel and Eddie/Karis. He was preceded in death by his sister Cathy and brother Ricky. Their well-being and happiness were always at the forefront of Larry’s heart, and their lives have been forever enriched by the love, guidance, and support Larry provided.

As a proud great grandfather, Larry rejoiced in the presence of nine adoring grandchildren: Zebulon, Nocoa, Isaiah, Solomon, Dalton, William, Willow, Ivy, Poppy and three great grandchildren, Azaleigh, Denver and Braxton. The bond shared between Larry and each member of his family was one of pure love and joy, creating memories that will be cherished for generations to come.

Larry’s legacy will continue to live on in the hearts of all those who were fortunate enough to know him and his faithful companion Maggy. His unwavering strength and dedication to his family and country will forever inspire and guide us.

A private family service will be held to honor and celebrate the remarkable life of Larry. In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests that donations be made to, reflecting Larry’s passion to families of America’s fallen or disabled military and first responders.

Though we mourn the loss of Larry, we find solace in knowing that he is at peace, reunited with his beloved wife, Sandy and will forever be remembered as a loving father, devoted veteran, and cherished member of our family.

May Larry’s soul rest in eternal peace.

    Saddened and sorrowed to hear about Larry. Always enjoyed running into him on the walking trail or when his kids or grandkids were playing youth baseball. Sorry I never crossed paths with him in the last couple years to thank him for being instrumental in getting a section of Jefferson extension named after Viet Nam casualty , Joe Zelaski, who was one of the older kids who grew up in my neighborhood. I know it meant a lot to Larry. My thoughts and sympathy go out to all of his family and many friends
