He was the son of the late Evelyn and William Given of Tecumseh, Michigan. Survivors include his wife, Mary Lowe Given and one sister, Cheryl (John) Broedell, of Tequesta, Florida. He is also survived by many nieces and nephews and numerous other family and friends.
Larry was a graduate of Cuyahoga Falls High School in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, where he later coached basketball. He was a US Army veteran, having served 2 tours in Vietnam. He was a graduate of the University of Akron and a member of PGA Tour 1979 -1983. Larry was a retiree of the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan.
As an avid sports fan, you never knew whether you would see him dressed in red or blue. He loved his Ohio State Buckeye football and the University of Kentucky basketball teams. He also loved to go bass fishing, until he taught his wife. Needless to say, he was a great teacher and taught her well.
In memory of Larry, his friends and family are invited to a Celebration of Life on July 16, at 4 pm at the Farmers Christian Church, Farmers.
