Lawrence Charles Gallaspie 06/05/1969 – 03/25/2021
It is with great sadness that the family of Lawrence Charles Gallaspie announces his sudden passing in his sleep on March 25, 2021 at the age of 51 years at his home in Deer Park, Ohio.
A former member of Roofers’ Union Local 42, Larry was proud to have contributed to the construction and maintenance of many landmark buildings in the Greater Cincinnati area. When not working outside, he enjoyed idle time along a river or lake with a fishing pole in his hand, even in the most inhospitable weather. Larry also frequented the Edgewater Motor Sports Park where he introduced his son, Brandon, to two other loves, fast cars and country music.
Larry is survived by his former wife and good friend, Brenda Vian and their loving son, Brandon; Brenda’s daughter, Jenna; mother, Rosalind Gallaspie; brother and his wife, Clint and Cindy Gallaspie.
He is preceded in death by his father, Kent Gallaspie; mother-in-law, Virginia (Ginny) Vian Ewing; father-in-law, Vyrl Ewing; grandparents, Lloyd and Ivy Budd, and Homer and Louvia Gallaspie, and grandpa Charlie McKean who adored him.
Larry will be forever remembered by his extended family and countless friends for his good sense of humor and as a kind and caring man.
Arrangements are under the direction of Hodapp Funeral Home, Cincinnati, Ohio. A celebration of Larry’s life will be held at the Francis R. Healy Community Center, 7640 Plainfield Rd, Deer Park, Ohio 45236 on April 10, 2021 at 2:00 pm.
