Obit: The passing of an old friend and customer, Larry G Hart

Posted By on September 10, 2017

Larry G. Hart, 81, former longtime resident of Cuyahoga Falls, passed away on Friday, September 8, 2017, at Copeland Oaks Crandall Medical Center, in Sebring, after a lengthy illness.

Larry graduated from South High School, earned a bachelor’s degree at the University of Akron, where he was a member of Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity, and later completed a Master’s degree at Kent State University. Early in his career, he taught elementary education in the Akron area and then was the reading specialist at the Youth Development Center, in Hudson, for several years. He made many friends while working part time at the YMCA and Falls Natatorium.

Larry served in the Army Reserves, and he was an active member of Faith United Methodist Church. A man of many talents, Larry played piano and organ, loved photography, and traveled extensively throughout the U.S. and abroad. As a snowbird, he enjoyed strolling the snow white sand beaches of the Florida panhandle. Larry was intrigued by how things worked, and he designed and built a vacation cottage. He was a collector of reed organs and a member of the Reed Organ Society. A real “people” person, Larry had the ability to find a connection with almost anyone he met. His friends were legion and covered the spectrum from young to old.

Larry was preceded in death by his parents, Marion M. and Belva (Steinmetz) Hart. He is survived by his sister, Linda (David) Workman; niece, Amy (Jared Grosinske) Workman; and his nephew, Jon (Kim) Workman and their children, Hannah, Ethan, and Lizzie.

A debt of gratitude is owed to the caring staff of Copeland Oaks and Crandall Medical Center and to the loving support provided by Crossroads Hospice.

Visitation will be 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Monday, September 11, 2017 at the Adams Mason Funeral Home, (791 East Market Street), where a memorial service will immediately follow at 7 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to , Grand Central Station, P.O.
