Lawrence P. Cabot, Jr.

May 23, 1961 - May 30, 2020     Age: 59

Beloved Husband, Father, Brother, Grandfather and Friend, Lawrence “Larry” Panela Cabot, Jr. passed away on May 30th, 2020 at the age of 59. He was born May 23, 1961 in Baguio City, Philippines to Lawrence Sr. and Rosita Cabot. U.S. Military service brought the Cabot family to the United States, eventually settling them in Columbia, SC where Larry grew up. After graduating from Spring Valley High School, Larry went on to the United States Military Academy at West Point. While attending West Point, Larry met his wife Julie Henry Cabot in Myrtle Beach while on Spring Break. They were married in Maryville, TN at Broadway United Methodist Church on June 2nd, 1984, only 10 days after his Graduation from West Point. As a Captain in the Army, he was stationed at Aberdeen Proving Grounds in Maryland, and then Butzbach, Germany. After his military service, Larry spent the majority of his career in the oil industry in sales and management.

    Larry never met a stranger, and was a friend to all. Anyone who knew him remembers him for his vibrant character, generosity, compassion, and sense of humor – a true gentlemen in every sense of the word.

 He is survived by his wife, Julie Henry Cabot of Fernandina Beach, FL; son, Austin Lawrence Cabot and his wife Jessica Helton Cabot of Winter Springs, FL; daughter, Christa Cabot Hammer and her Husband Dr. Jon David Hammer and grandson Josiah of Gainesville, FL; and beloved dog Dolly. He is also survived by his brother, Sergeant First Class (Ret. USA) Rudy Cabot and his wife Maxanne of Columbia, SC; sister, General (Ret. SC ANG) Linda Cabot Keck and her husband Scott of Columbia, SC; and sister, Ruth Cabot Forest of Lafayette, LA.

   A celebration of life will be planned for Larry at a later date. The family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to Saint Peter’s Episcopal Church of Fernandina Beach (801 Atlantic Ave., Fernandina Beach, FL 32034) or Friends of Fort Clinch (2601 Atlantic Ave., Fernandina Beach, FL 32034), where Larry often volunteered.

    Larry was a colleague, a friend and a wonderful person. News of his passing just spread through our organization today. In a chat of 17 people, all were shocked at the sudden loss. Numerous comments of the “best boss that I had” and other compliments of his character, were numerous. He was very well respected and we will all miss him. Allow me to speak for many of us sharing our condolences for your loss.
