I am sorry that we were out of town and could not come to the services. I enjoyed working with Larry at Zerden's for those 13 years. He was a true pleasure to work with (Bobby too) and I will miss his dry sense of humor. Since I only knew Bobby, Sharon and Kay, my words are directed to you. Treasure your memories of Larry - I will. God Bless.

I send your family my sympathies. Larry Dayvault was one of the best men I've known. He was funny and smart and just a joy to be around. I just found out today about his passing and am filled with sorrow and also compassion for the family. I know he will be truly missed.

Larry Wayne was the first of 5 grand boys born to John Franklin & Essie Lee Dayvault, followed by his brother Steve and cousins Bobby, Johnny and Donnie Ervin. He was the first to graduate from high school, first to serve in the US military, first to marry and have kids, first to bury his wife and first to depart this world and pass to the other side. What we remember most is his love and dedication to his family, Ruth, Sharon & Bobby, then Kay and the grand children. They went everywhere together and eventually took care of each other. We pray Gods blessings on all who loved Wayne.
