Larry S. Early

NEW IBERIA - Larry S. Early ("Moe"), 80, passed away peacefully, Monday, November 4, 2013 in his home after a short battle with cancer.

Moe was born October 8, 1933 in Chillicothe, Texas. He was a veteran of the U.S. Army, serving his country proudly in the 82nd Airborne in the Korean War. He retired in 1988, after a 24 year career with Sante Fe Drilling, now TransOcean. He spent many of his years of retirement growing in faith. He also utilized his creative nature, building and then giving away, custom birdhouses, doghouses and anything else he thought might bring joy to family or friends. He was a giving man, who brought laughter to all who were around him.

Moe was a loving husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. What meant the most to Moe was his family. Having them all together was his greatest joy. He will be dearly missed by all.

He is survived by his beloved wife of 55 years, Sue Early; one sister, Lucy Morris; five children, Gary Early and wife, Mindy Early, David Early and wife, Marilyn Early, Tim Early and wife, Desireé Early, Kristi McCauley and husband, Tim McCauley, and Missy Early; eleven grandchildren, Brandi Vargas and husband Omar Vargas, Kendal Ferritti and husband, Gary Ferritti, Ben Early and wife, Misty Early, Tobie Fontenot and husband, Ryan Fontenot, Heidi Early, Emile Belsito, Phillip Early, Molli Early and fiancé, Chris Cormier, Joe Early, and Bret Early; six great grandchildren, Emma McCauley, Layla Early, Jackson Fontenot, Marlie Fontenot, Mason Vargas, and Delilah Ferritti.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Ben and Mary Bell Montgomery Early; brothers, Jubal Early, Mitt Early, Joe Early, Julius Early, and Buck Early; and sisters, Glendene Dunston and Vera Coleman.

Personal condolences may be sent to the family at 332 Magnolia Avenue, New Iberia, LA 70563.
