J Larry Lively, age 63, born September 6, 1949 peacefully entered into the fullness of Eternal Life the early morning of January 10, 2013 at the VAMC in Oklahoma City in the presence of his two daughters and son-in-law. He served in the US Marine Corp from 1969 to 1974 and received multiple honors for his service to our country.
Larry had an effervescent zest for life with a passion for many things from cooking to cheering for the Oklahoma Sooners. He made his living through unique opportunities in restaurant ownership (Quarters Club & McDuffy's in Bartlesville), hotel management, and various other ventures. In his prime of life Larry loved many things including taking the family to Grand Lake, playing golf on Sundays, and entertaining all of those around him with amazing recipes and stories. Larry is remembered for lighting up a room, his boisterous laugh, and being the life of the party. Larry was a truly generous man with a loving heart.
Above everything else, Larry loved his daughters the most. He taught Amanda and Whitney to love life, the true teaching of a household chore list, and to put others before yourself.
Larry was preceded in death by his brother, Stephen G Lively; uncle, Earl Lively; and aunt, Marie Lively. Larry is survived by his sister, Arlene Lively Davis (Mark); his daughters, Whitney Lively Katigan (Russell) and Amanda Lively (Brandon Pool); beloved dog, Polo; infant grandson, Charles Oliver Pool; and many family and friends.
A private service will be held in Harrison, Arkansas. In lieu of flowers, honorary and memorial contributions may be made to the National Prion Disease Pathology Surveillance Center, Case Western Reserve University, www.cjdsurveillance.com
