Wayland - Laurice D. “Larry” Eddy, 74 years of age, passed away Sunday morning April 16, 2017 at his home in Wayland.

Larry was born August 16, 1942 in Troupsburg the son of Roland C. and Audreta A. (Potter) Eddy. He grew up in Troupsburg and graduated from high school there in 1960. Larry then attended and graduated from Rochester Institute of Technology with a degree in chemistry. He resided in Rochester for a few years and in 1969 moved to Wayland and has remained there ever since. Larry and Susan Muusse were married September 14, 1963 and together celebrated over 31 years of marriage prior to Susan passing away June 4, 1995. Larry and Lorna Coates met in 1996 and on May 1, 2004 they were married and have enjoyed their time together.

Larry was employed as a chemical engineer at Woerner Industries in Rochester for many years. His hobbies were many as he enjoyed woodworking, trying new foods and restaurants and he was an accomplished archer. Archery and hunting were a great pastime of Larry’s throughout the years, especially travelling to hunting camp in Troupsburg throughout the years. Larry also taught the hunter safety course for several years and he enjoyed fishing. Larry enjoyed travelling to North Carolina the past few winters, he was a member of the NCA Sports Club and when he was younger a member of the Wayland Fire Department. However, it was Larry’s sense of humor that he will be remembered most for. He always was joking around and picking at someone. You had to be on your toes when Larry was around.
