Larry Slade Whitt passed away at Methodist hospital January 23, 2021. Larry’s parents, Roy and Vennea (Venie) Whitt were blessed with his birth on April 25, 1956 at Clinch Valley Hospital in Tazewell, Virginia. Due to both parents going to be with Jesus at a young age, Larry was raised with his uncle Rhudy Keith, by his maternal grandparents Robert and Novie Keith of Tazewell, Virginia.
Larry worked in the Virginia coal mines for many years, until he relocated to Indiana and became a Maintenance Technician with GE in Bloomington, In. He retired from GE after 25 years of service. Larry served in the United States Marine Corps.
Larry enjoyed playing his guitar and banjo. He was an avid hunter, fisherman, beekeeper and always looked forward to watching football. For many years Larry fished the trout streams in Virginia and crappie lakes in Mississippi. He could always identify birds by their song and sound. He would adamantly watch a wide variety of wildlife strolling across his back yard and often created names for many of them. Larry anxiously awaited spring to plant the vegetable garden and he actively took part in the harvest and canning of the bounty. His cat which he named, Two Claws and his two Jack Russell grandpuppies Coco and JJ, gave him much affection and joy.
Larry is survived by his wife Ruth “Candi” Whitt, his daughter Bequita Prince and her companion Mark Mundy of Martinsville, In., his sons Joshua Whitt of Indianapolis, In., Damionne Whitt of Martinsville, In. and his stepsons Brian Lentz and Brad Lentz both of Bloomington, In.
Surviving grandchildren include Jesse Prince of Bedford, In., Zachary Prince of Gosport, In., Kamiah Whitt and Kaydn Whitt both of Auburn, In., and one great grandchild, Kessa Weaver of Bedford, In.
Step grandchildren are Joshua Lentz of Ft Collins, Colorado, Austin Lentz and Alexi McCullough both of Bloomington, In.
Additionally, he is survived by his loyal and faithful friend Paul Sears of Bedford, In.
He was preceded in death by his parents, grandparents, his brothers, Lester Whitt and Christopher Whitt, both in laws, Clifford and Rose Terhune, brother in law, George Terhune, brother in law, William Terhune, grandson, Brody Whitt, step grandsons, Joseph Lentz and Dakota Lentz.
Rev Pat Arthur of the Southern Hills Church of Christ will be officiating the service.
Visitation will be from 12:00 PM until 1:00 PM on Thursday, January 28, 2021 at The Funeral Chapel of Powell and Deckard, 3000 E. Third Street Bloomington.
Funeral services will be private due to Covid-19 restrictions.
Pallbearers will be Damionne Whitt, Mark Mundy, Zachary Prince, Jesse Prince, Brian Lentz, Brad Lentz, Austin Lentz and Ben Terhune.
Military rites will be conducted at the graveside service at Valhalla Memory Gardens following the service at The Funeral Chapel.
In lieu of flowers it was Larry’s request that donations be made to the American Heart Society.

I always enjoyed talking with Larry. I teased about being from West Virginia. He made it clear that it was Western Virginia. He was a good man and will be missed. My prayers go out to Candi and the family.
