Larry Lowell Alderman went to be with the Lord on April 28, 2018. He is survived by his loving wife, Gigi Alderman, daughter, Kristy Disch, son, Andrew Alderman, and five beautiful grandchildren, sisters, Ann Bond, Carlene Hunter and Glenda Tadd.

Larry, you left us way too early and will truly be missed by Gigi your wife, your children and grandchildren. By your sisters, friends and relatives, by your co-workers and family in Christ at your church. You touched our hearts with your smile, your devout love of God and your willingness to share our burdens and replace them with an appropriate scripture. You loved your family and friends so much, whether they were sitting near you on your deck or talking by phone in another state. You loved to make people laugh, sometimes by teasing but more often at your own expense. I could always tell when your kids were coming to visit because you knew there would also be grand-kids in the house, and I saw that gleam in your eye. You cherished those moments without ever having to say the words, yet we knew. You and Gigi shared a bond so exceptional for so long, made up of thousands of memories. Through all the blessings you both gave the world two awesome kids and five beautiful grandchildren.

Larry, you came into my world as a brother in law, but left this world as my brother. We will all miss you but we should show our appreciation as well. For your love, kindness, fellowship and friendship. For your unwavering faith and ability to comfort us, Thank You Larry, we will always love you.

Inurnment will be held on Saturday May 19, 2018. at 2pm at Pompano Beach Cemetery and the Memorial Gathering at 2:30pm. at Kraeer Funeral Home 200 North Federal Highway Pompano Beach, FL 33062.

Gigi, Even though we lost touch with you over the years, we considered Larry and you dear friends. Larry always made us laugh and his smile was just contagious. Keeping you in our prayers.

My thoughts and prayers are with Gigi and all of the family as they face these difficult days in the loss of Larry. I have so many sweet fun memories of times spent as cousins growing up together , loving Jesus and helping each other. We celebrated many holidays together as a big family. I remember my mother, Larry's Aunt Clara , taking care of him while his mother was driving her school bus. She often told us what a cute bright little boy he was, always asking amazing questions . He grew up to be a such a fine Christian model to his family and friends. He will be missed and now we must fill our hearts with his memories. We know someday we will all be together again forever.
Love to the family,
Henrietta

For Gigi, Kristy, Andrew , Faith, Claire, Eva, Hugh, Oliver, Scott and Aura,
Ron and I pray that God will continue to wrap His loving arms around you and give you comfort today and everyday that follows. Please remember this, your memories are God's gifts that no one can ever erase or take from you. Lean on those memories, smile on those memories, and know when you do, he is looking over you and smiling...

and a memory or two...

Larry and I had a special relationship. He was a true friend and shoulder to lean on when I needed it most. I've always been grateful for that. We had great conversations, not often, but always... that was even true through his last days... I had the honor of being able to care for Larry during his last days and was so humbled to do so. Not surprising, Larry still had his dry wit and words of wisdom. I asked him if he wanted to visit and have me read the Bible he said, "find Psalm 103". I did, and it was no surprise that he knew exactly where he was directing me. After reading he said," how great is that?" God loves you "as far as the east is from the west" do you know what that means?" He continued, " there is no boundary to God's love for you, there is no end to it, it feels good doesn't it?"
Those words, that Psalm, and that special moment in time will never be forgotten..
I thank God for that memory with Larry and the time we shared. May you rest now in peace and know you were loved....:}

I was so fortunate to have Larry as an FPL friend for many years. Even after he retired, he still helped me every time I asked for customer information. He alone, developed query's that provided valuable customer information to the DSM group at FPL. We spoke many times regarding our faith, families, and about just being a good person in life. He was a kind and respectful man to everyone; I never knew anyone that didn't like him.

Larry and I both worked for Florida Power and Light. We started working together in January 1986 on a project. Larry was the lead business analyst.

Every day when Larry arrived at work he immediately went to a project meeting. I did not see him again until lunch time. After lunch he went back to the meeting and usually left early evening to go home and return the next day only to repeat the whole process again.

This continued for 7 years. Sometimes I would ask him what was discussed at these meetings. He always said its always about what we discussed the day before. He is the only person I ever knew who ever attended the same meeting for seven years.

Larry without question was the smartest person I ever met. Not only was he the principal analyst/leader he was always someone you to go to if you had any questions about chemistry, military history, airplanes, life in general, and the bible

In August of 1986 I was diagnosed with cancer. Larry put a group together that prayed for me ever day. Larry was a man of God. He knew the bible like the back of his hand. After radiation and surgery I was able to return to work after 4 months. Larry was the first one to greet me when I returned to work.

Larry retired before I did. I had the honor of organizing his retirement party. Lots of people showed up and every one who attended had nothing but good things to say about him. We keep in touch over the years. When we talked over the phone much of our conversation was always comprised of laughter.

When Larry told me he had cancer my heart was broken. Larry was at peace with his illness and continued to praise and honor God throughout his ordeal. I prayed for him and his family and never forgot how he prayed for me. I sent an email to a co-worker friend of Larry and I. She was upset and told the story about how Larry made everyone laugh daily in the break room.

Larry was my best friend. We had a very special friendship and he will always be in my heart.
