OBITUARY

William Henry Larder

March 26, 1930July 20, 2020

In loving memory of William Henry Larder (Bill) Bill was born in Passaic, New Jersey on March 26, 1930 to Ronald and Deborah Larder. He had a sister (Winnie) and brother (Ronnie). He graduated from Rutherford HS and then went on to earn his degree in agriculture from National Agricultural College in 1951. Bill married his childhood sweetheart Nancy, of Clifton NJ in 1952. Bill dreamed of having his own dairy farm and made that dream come true where he started a family in upstate New York from 1953 through 1963. When he had his fourth daughter, he decided it was time to sell the farm. He then worked in Waterville NY for Agway Feed and Seed. Work brought him to Virginia with Southern States Cooperative and he worked for them for 26 years until retirement. He was a member of the Lions and Ruritan clubs and President of the Lake Shawnee Association where he lived on the lake. Church was always an important part of his life. Bill served as an elder for Tuckahoe Presbyterian as well as elder, treasurer and trustee for Providence Presbyterian church. He is survived by his wife of 67 years Nancy, daughters Christine (Dave) Wesley, Kathleen (Michael) Martin, Betsy Huggins and Linda Colbert. Grandchildren are Melissa (Jerry) Vaughn, Matt (Annie) Wesley, Katie Wesley, Mark Huggins, Andrew Huggins, Kyle (Lanita) Colbert, and Tyler (Ashley) Colbert. Adorable great grandchildren- Troy, Kierstyn and Brooks. Anyone who knew Bill loved him with his friendly, positive outlook on life and strong faith. He was endeared by all and a true gentleman. He loved his family, serving the Lord, farming, gardening and the New York Yankees. He always had a smile on his face to light up a room and always helped others. He will be greatly missed but he leaves a life well lived and a wonderful legacy.

I just saw Bill's obituary, and wanted to extend heartfelt condolences to the family. I remember Bill as one of the nicest, classiest gentlemen I have ever known. We were fortunate to have the Larder family as neighbors. I am thankful that I saw the obit in time to attend the funeral.

To the entire Larder family:

Our family and yours have been intertwined since the early 1950's, soon after our parents married on the same day in September, 1952. We send our love and support to all of you and understand the grief you are feeling about the loss of Bill. We certainly hope that Bill and our Dad are talking about baseball and farming. Together again. With love from the Briggs family
