Larry Lee Gaydon

December 1, 1945 ~ February 13, 2022 (age 76)

Obituary

Larry grew up in NE Portland, attending Woodlawn Grade School and graduating from Jefferson High School in the Class of 63.

 

He went on to serve in the US Military as an Army Medic in Vietnam.  He was awarded the Bronze Star for Valor, attending to the wounded amid attack.

 

Larry and Mary were friends through grade school and high school and were happily united in marriage, August 23, 1969.  They were so happy to be blessed with son, Tim in 1971 and twice blessed in 1974 with son, Terry; and even more blessed to have celebrated 52 years of marriage.

 

Larry began a career with Pacific Power and Light in 1969 as a meter reader and after 25 years retired as a Customer Service Supervisor.

 

His “Love of Life” was his family! Always making sure their needs were met!

 

He loved playing golf with his Buddies, working in his yard, and doing some traveling to Hawaii, Arizona, Disneyland, and to Germany to spend time with Terry while he was serving in the Army.

 

Larry will be missed by all who knew him; as someone you could always count on being there for you and to give you a reason to smile.

 

A Cemetery Service with Military Honors will be 2:00 p.m., Monday, March 7, 2022 at Willamette National Cemetery, Portland, Oregon.
