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.
