Lawrence Eugene Henwood
May 31, 1943 ‒ June 06, 2016
Lawrence E. “Larry” Henwood, age 73 of Fredericktown, passed away Monday June 6, 2016 at his residence surrounded by his caring family.
Larry was born May 31, 1943 in Mount Vernon to Walter “Mac” Henwood and Esther Retta (Hillier) Henwood. He was a 1961 graduate of Fredericktown High School and had spent his lifetime in the Fredericktown area. He had been employed as a purchasing agent for the Foote Foundry Company and later Dana Corporation in Fredericktown and retired as a sales representative from Techman Sales. However the job he enjoyed the most and would reminisce about was when he worked as manager, head cook, waiter and bottle washer at Hillier’s Pool Hall in Fredericktown following graduation. After retirement, Larry volunteered at the Fredericktown Interchurch Social Services.
Surviving are his wife of 53 years Nancy (Franz) Henwood, sons Bryan (Kathryn) Henwood of Howard, Damon (Tonya) Henwood of Bellville; his daughter Brooke (Jeff Doup) Henwood of Butler; grandchildren Nick, Layne, Ashton, Mac and Josh; his brother Rodney Henwood of Fredericktown; brother-in-law Arthur Dremann of Fredericktown and many nieces and nephews. Besides his parents he was preceded in death by his sister Beverly Dremann.
There will be a service celebrating the life of Larry on Saturday June 11, 2016 at 10 AM at the First Presbyterian Church, 17 South Main Street, Fredericktown, Ohio 43019, with Pastor Dave Root officiating. The family will receive friends at the church following the service.
The family prefers no flowers.
