After a courageous battle with cancer, Larry Keith Poma passed away at the age of 68 peacefully in his home on May 14, 2023 to be with his Lord and Savior.

Larry was born on June 27, 1954 in Detroit, Michigan. He graduated from Lee M. Thurston High School, where he actively played in most sports. He especially loved baseball and went on play professionally in the minor leagues until an injury ended his career. He later found his niche in new home construction and carpentry. He always found his solace in nature, hunting, fishing, and traveling and tending to their land with his beloved wife of 30 years.

His life will be celebrated by the spreading of his ashes across the trails, lakes, and oceans of America.
