ARVADA, Colo. — A celebration of life for Larry Magee with be Wednesday, May 20, 2015, starting at 6 p.m. at Trinity Church of the Brethren, 2220 N. Main Ave., Sidney.

Family and friends mourn the loss of George "Larry" Magee, who courageously overcame his battle with cancer and went to his heavenly home on April 28, 2015, at the young age of 73. For all who met him and knew him, he was "larger than life" and made each feel loved.

He was born May 18, 1941, to George C. and Virginia M. (Hicks) Magee. He was brother to Marlene Counts, of Pell City, Alabama, Anna Lee (Bob) Brandehoff, of Wapakoneta, Kathryn (Richard) Slife, of Piqua, and Kimberly Magee, who preceded him in death. He dedicated his life to his high school sweetheart, Jolene (Bolin), whom he married in 1960, and children, Mike, who preceded him in death, Tim, Ron (Carla), and two daughters, Bethany (Joe) Dukehart, and Megan (Marlena). He was a special grandpa to 11 grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.

He provided for and taught his family his great work ethic by serving 25 years at LeRoi Dresser as a sales technician, various other jobs, and 13 years as a bus driver for Denver RTD.

He loved the Lord and though his physical presence will be missed, he will forever live in the hearts of those he touched. Flowers can be sent to 5043 Pheasant, Elida, OH 45807; donations may be sent to AmeriCorps, or Brethren Disaster Ministry. You may see the full obituary at
