Obituary for Larry Franklin Fry

Larry Franklin Fry, 67, Logansport, passed away at 2:53 p.m. Saturday, February 10, 2018, in The Simon Cancer Center at IU University Hospital, Indianapolis, following a long, hard-fought battle with cancer.

Born August 21, 1950, in Piggott, Arkansas, he was the son of the late George Franklin and Esther Evelyn (Bristow) Fry.

On November 27, 1971, in St. Ann, Missouri, he was married to Lee Ann (Shell) Fry, who survives.

Larry was a proud veteran of the U.S. Army, serving in Military Intelligence in Thailand during the Vietnam War. He graduated from Signal School in the Army and his specialty was receiving encrypted codes from Vietnam and forwarding them to the Pentagon as part of a high security communication system.

After the war, Larry attended DeVry University where he studied electronic engineering.- a field in which he worked for many years. At age 38, he switched careers and became a stockbroker, moving his family to Logansport in August of 1988. Larry also worked as an insurance agent, sales representative and an IBP plant planner. Due to illness, he retired from the State of Indiana as a maintenance foreman with the Department of Corrections.

Larry loved the Lord with all his heart and trusted Him completely during his battle with cancer for he knew the promise of Eternal Life as the foundation of his faith. He was a member of the New Life Alliance Church whose members were an extension of his own family. He also belonged to the America Legion Post 60. He was a former Rotarian and had served on the Logansport Cass County Chamber of Commerce, having received the designation of “Board Member of the Year.”

An outdoor enthusiast, Larry enjoyed hunting. He also enjoyed photography. Larry was a “tinkerer” who loved fixing things and had big dreams of restoring a classic car someday.

Surviving with his wife of 47 years are four children and their spouses: Thomas Franklin and Michelle Fry, Lebanon, IN, Daniel Franklin and Susan Fry, Loganville, GA, Angela Lee “Franklin” and Christopher Malloy, Aurora, IL and Samuel Franklin and Kayla Fry, Logansport, IN; two brothers and sisters-in-law, Garry and Deborah Fry, Dodge City, KS, and Terry and Cindy Fry, St. Peter’s, MO; seven grandchildren. Katelynn Fry, Jacob Franklin Fry, Allison Fry, Hayden Malloy, Annabelle Fry, Mason Franklin Malloy and Avry Fry; and several nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by one sister, Glenda Dowler.

A funeral service celebrating Larry’s life will be held at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, February 18 in Fisher Funeral Chapel with Pastor Scott Halterman officiating.

Burial will follow in Mount Hope Cemetery. Full military honors will be accorded to Larry by active duty members of the U.S. Army, the Cass County Honor Guard and the Indiana Patriot Guard.

Friends will be received from 4-8 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 17 in the funeral chapel.
