Oct. 22, 1952-July 16, 2011

Larry Lee Hartley, 58, went to be with his Lord and savior Saturday, July 16, 2011.

Larry was born in Wayne County Oct. 22, 1952, to the late Elmer Lee "Jake" and Louise Pearce Hartley of Grantham community.

He was a member of Rosewood First Baptist Church.

An avid gardener, Larry loved to work in his garden, and enjoyed sharing God's bounty with others. Larry enjoyed fishing and collecting movies.

He was a brave man, who had battled cancer courageously for the last two years. Even during his sickness, he never gave up or let go of his firm belief in the power of prayer. Larry's determination to let it be God's will was an inspiration to all who knew him.

Funeral services will be held Tuesday, July 19, 2011, at 7 p.m. at Seymour Funeral Home chapel, with the Rev. Kent Boone and the Rev. Dennis Pollock officiating. Interment will be Wednesday at 11 a.m. at Wayne Memorial Park.
