Larry Lee Jennings was born April 10, 1943, to Ira and Mary Jennings. He passed away peacefully during the night March 13, 2018. He was one of sixteen boys born to Ira and Mary. He had lived most of his life around Wayne County to be near family and friends.

Larry was a life-long worker of 40 years at Voltmaster Batteries, now known as East Penn. He retired some years ago. When he wasn’t at work, you could find him out fishing, going to rummage sales or out in the garage trying to prepare a lawn mower for the mowing season. One of his favorite past times was to go to his mom’s house when his brothers would come to visit and they would all sit around the table and play cards for hours. Larry never missed going to any of the Jennings’s family reunions.

Larry has been married three times with the first wife have three boys. Larry Allan, David Wayne and Michael Lee. After that marriage ended, he married Bessie (Betty) Byrn. They were together until her death in November 2004. There were no children from that marriage. As time passed, he became fond of another woman. They began spending time together and going to auctions as a favorite pastime. They eventually moved in together as they become a couple Oct. 20, 2007. This was Pat Byrn. They had no children together. Over the years his family and friends began to call him “George” more than Larry. As the year 2018 approached Larry’s health was becoming weak, which took him in and out of the hospital. Over the years, he and Pat had talked about getting married on one of their future anniversaries. They were going to be married on their Oct. 2 anniversary but knew his health would not allow him to be here much longer. His last loving wish was to marry Pat and they were married March 11, 2018.
