He grew up in Old Town. Larry was a 1955 graduate of Old Town High School and eventually graduated from the University of Maine in 1998 with a BS in University Studies.

Lorraine Dunn Sr. and their children, Mark, Patrick, and Alice; his sister and brother-in-law, Edna and Charles Lucas Sr.
The family would like to thank the staff at Westgate Center for their compassion and care of Larry during his time at their facility.

I’m so sorry for your loss. Death stings very much. It’s one of the hardest thing to cope with. May the “God of all comfort” gives you strength and peace of mind in this time of difficulties. - 2 Corinthians 1:3,4. JW.org
