Lawrence Vincent O'Grady
December 14, 1961-February 11, 2017
We lost Larry on February 11, 2017 to the Alaska waters of the Bering Sea when his fishing vessel, Destination, went missing.
Larry was born in Seattle to Irving and Rita O'Grady in 1961. He was brother to Maureen Young, Bernadette O'Grady and Kerry O'Grady. He grew up in Edmonds and graduated from Woodway High in 1980. Soon after, he began his lifelong love of fishing that lasted over thirty years. In 2006, Larry married Gail Plummer after a seventeen year engagement.
Larry O, Lars, LarBear, Lawrence, LimoLar. Whatever you called him, he was a happy, friendly, smiley, energetic, excitable, social guy who was a BBQ and cooking enthusiast. He knew no stranger and had many friends and extended family. He will be missed immensely.
A memorial is planned on April 21, 2017 from 3-7pm at Kitsap Golf and Country Club. A GoFundMe page has been set up to benefit Larry's wife, Gail. https://www.gofundme.com/larry-ogradys-family-fund
