MERIDEN - Lawrence Robert Cantliffe Jr. (Larry), 90, husband of Geraldine (Jeri) Cantliffe, passed peacefully into the arms of his Creator early in the morning of Friday, April 17, 2015, at The Masonicare Hospice in Wallingford, Conn. He was born on March 5, 1925 in Paterson, N.J. to Lawrence Cantliffe Sr. and Martha Cantliffe. Larry was a sharpshooter and later joined the Army Air Corps in 1943 and trained as a pilot. He served from Arizona to the Aleutian Islands, and was part of the "Operation Pinball" training for flight gunnery in Texas before his discharge in 1945. Larry then attended NC State and majored in Forestry Products, graduating in 1950. Larry and Jeri were married in Raleigh, N.C. on Sept 1, 1949.
