Larry E. Wyant
Larry E. Wyant, 56, of Yulee passed away Friday, February 3, 2023 at his home.
Born in Lima, OH he was the son of Lawrence Eugene Wyant and the late Leola Richmond Wyant. While growing up in Lima he enjoyed being in the high school band and hanging out with his best friend Tom Graham.
Larry moved to Yulee in 1986 and for over 21 years he worked for the Nassau County Sheriff’s Office as a Network Technician. He had recently retired due to health concerns.
For over 30 years he and his wife, Leslie, had a wonderful and enjoyable marriage. They both put taking care of each other ahead of themselves. From RVing or “glamping” as they called it, to enjoying Disney together, they always had a good time together. Their dedication to each other was unequaled. They never seemed to find anything to argue about and were able to kiss each other good morning and good night, no matter what.
Larry enjoyed reading the Harry Potter books as well as spending time in his garage “tinkering’ with cars and John Deere tractors. He was a Jack of All Trades and was able to repair nearly anything and everything, a trait he learned from his father. He also loved going to swap meets and various tractor shows. Larry also enjoyed jigsaw puzzles. He would work at putting them together until it was finished just the same as his mother did.
Larry always did his best to enjoy his life. He was lighthearted and could often be heard whistling throughout the day no matter the circumstances were. He was always able to make those around him laugh. His sense of humor extended to one of his favorite tricks which was to slip a movie quote into a conversation too see if someone caught it and then guess which movie the quote came from. His favorite holiday was Christmas. Among the family Christmas decorations, he loved to put up he also kept a bag of some 25 Christmas movies. Before the holiday season was over with, he would manage to watch every one of them.
He leaves behind his wife, Leslie Auve Wyant; his father Eugene Wyant of Yulee; his sisters, Barbara Parsley of Rockmart, GA, Debra Oliver of Taylorsville, GA and Linda Steed of Lima, OH; Leslie’s parents, Joel and Marjolijn Auve; brothers-in-law, Martin Auve and Brett VanHorn; a best friend, Tom Graham as well as several nieces and nephews.
A service to remember and celebrate Larry’s life will be held Saturday, February 11, 2023 at 2:00 PM in the Burgess Chapel of Oxley-Heard Funeral Directors. He will be laid to rest at a later time.
It was Larry’s request that rather than flowers, donations be made to St. Jude’s Children Research Hospital because in his words, “no kid should have to go through this stuff!”
