Lawrence E. Baumgardner Sr. Obituary
Lawrence E. Baumgardner, Sr.
Resident of Santa Cruz
Larry was born in Huntington, WV, and after attending schools in Barboursville, he moved with his family to Campbell, CA in 1959 at the age of fourteen. He worked as an Operating Engineer for several years and was employed by ISL as a truck driver. He was the only son of the late Asa and Edna Baumgardner, and leaves behind four sons, Larry, Jr. of Norman, OK, Allen (Dawn) and Justin of Calhoun, GA, and Jimmy of Campbell, CA, and four grandchildren, Jordan, Garrison, Autumn, and Emily. He was pre-deceased by his sister, Eva Maher, and leaves behind two sisters, Charlotte Pizzo and Patricia Bennett.
A graveside service is planned for October 2 in Los Gatos. Anyone interested in attending should contact Pat at pabatgpb@yahoo.com for details.
Larry was blessed to have made wonderful friends at Woodland Sr Apts in Santa Cruz. His unique personality and humor attracted people from his "girls at the gas station" in San Jose to the kind people of Santa Cruz who loaned their phone or gave him rides when he needed them. His abiding love for the SF Giants was the source of much pleasure, and he loved to talk about them and the games he enjoyed so much.
We will miss him always.
