Obituary


Larry Stephen Voie

Larry Stephen Voie passed from this earth far too early on April 16, 2011. Larry was born June 26, 1946 in Everett to Andrew and Rhoda Voie.
He attended Swans Trail and Lowell Elementary schools, South Junior and graduated from Everett High School in 1965. After attending a year of college at BYU he was drafted into the Army and served his country in Vietnam. When he returned to the US he attended and graduated from the University of Washington with a BA in English Literature. Larry was a career social worker with DSHS, most of his time spent working with families doing child protective services.
The focus of Larry's life was his wonderful wife, Patricia, the rest of his family and his love of God and Jesus Christ. He was a doting grandfather and devoted husband. Larry loved to golf, regardless of the weather. Larry loved to watch sports of any kind, a passion learned from his father. Larry loved music and was rekindling his passion for playing guitar, harmonica and singing. He was a remarkable albeit modest artist. Larry had a green thumb and loved to garden. He was generous, humble and gentle.
Larry leaves behind his wife of 25 years, Patricia; daughters, Sherice Mansfield and Laurissa Schmitt; brother, Mike Voie; sisters, Blanche (Lawrence) Burkey, Ina (Jim) Schoentrup, Cathy Eisenman, Nancy Wolke and Margaret (Lee) Huleatt; and numerous nieces and nephews. He leaves behind many close friends, many of whom he shared a lifetime friendship.
He was preceded in passing by his mother, Rhoda, in 1969; and his father, Andy, in 1993.
Larry's ashes will be interred in the family plots at GAR Cemetery in Snohomish.
A celebration of Larry's life will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, April 30, 2011 at View Ridge Community Church, 4800 Dogwood Drive, Everett
