Memories Timeline


  1. I was so sorry to hear this sad news Saturday morning. We never know how short life is going to be. I had just found Larry on facebook several months ago, and was glad that I had reconnected with the Plunk Family again. We go back to our teenage years, and have very fond memories of all of the Plunk men. Please pass our thoughts and prayers on to the family, and let them know that they are in our thoughts and prayers.

  2. I am so sorry for the family of Larry Plunk. He stood out to me as the most genuine person I had the opportunity to work with. He touched my life in so many ways as a mentor to me. He will be truly missed, I will be praying for your family!

  3. Mo, I’m so sorry for your loss. My prayers are with you and your family. If you need anything, don’t hesitate to let me know.

  4. I worked with Larry at the Wortham Facility. He was always a joy to be around. He was an inspiring individual and could make others achieve their goals by just being around them—had a smile on his face and before you knew it everyone was smiling.
    He will be missed. Every now and then he would send me a joke by email and I could just see him smiling.
    Will keep your family in my prayers.

  5. Larry will be sorely missed and always appreciated and mourned by his classmates and friends from BA65. He genuinely meant a great deal to us all and I am confident that he sits at the right hand of his Creator. My love and condolences to his family, whom he loved so much. Jack

  6. Ellonia and I were very sorry to hear of Larry’s passing and were sorry we could not attend the services. Our prayers are with you and the family.
