Lawrence A. Chesebro, age 90 of Ada, passed away Saturday, January 14, 2023. He was preceded in death by his wife of 68 years, Edith (Gould) Chesebro and his son, Donald Chesebro. Larry is survived by his children, Sharon Grau, Darlene Horsley, Marlene Chesebro, Michael Chesebro, Larry (Kristan) Chesebro; sister-in-law, Sally Gould; grandchildren, Terry (Staci) Chesebro, Kelly (Mark) Thelen, Rebecca (Mark) Nicholson, Cyndi Nicholson; great-grandchildren, Bradlee (Josh), Marcellus, Dylan, Sophia, Emma, Kiera, Andrew, Samuel; great-great-grandson, Sage; and several nieces and nephews. Larry grew up in the Ada-Lowell area. A Korean War veteran, Larry served in the United States Army from 1951-1955. Larry was a hard-working man who held down two jobs to support his wife and six children. He was an avid hunter and fisherman, a long-time member of Qua-Ke-Zik Sportsman’s Club, and loved touring the country on his motorcycle. Larry enjoyed the thrill of bargain hunting and owned a wide variety of sports cars and motorcycles throughout his life. He enjoyed traveling with his wife and children and visited Hawaii, Florida, and Australia. Larry will be remembered as a man who truly delighted in his family and was always there to lend a helping hand. He took great joy in his grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great-grandson. He also had a delightfully mischievous grin that lit up his face, and he enjoyed bantering with others until his last days. The family would like to express their gratitude to the staff of Maple Ridge Manor for their excellent care of Larry during his final year, as well as to Careline Hospice services. A Celebration of Life will take place at a later date.
My thoughts and prayers with all. His presence will be greatly missed as it is so difficult to lose your Dad, Grandpa, Great Grandpa, Uncle, etc. So sorry for this loss.
So sorry for your loss, so happy Uncle Larry will suffer no more. I’m sure there has been such a joyous reunion with all the family and extended family and friends who went before him. I will miss that mischievous smile immensely. Prayers of comfort and peace for all his loving children!
Pam and Ed Ellinger
So very sorry for your loss. He knew Art before I did. They were card playing buds. He will be sadly missed but rejoice he is whole and no longer in pain. R I P Uncle Larry
