He was born on March 13, 1943 in Marion, the son of the late James D. and Roxie (Lusk) Smith.

Smith of Lebanon; five grandchildren, Sarah and Micah VanVoorhis, Sheree, Marina and Harleigh Smith; two great-grandchildren; one brother, James Dale Smith of Johnson, Vt.

Besides his parents, he was preceded in death by one sister, Mary Harper.

In keeping with Larry’s wishes, cremation will take place.
