Larry Woosley Dies At 57

Larry R. Woosley, age 57, of LaBelle, passed away March 16, 2015 in Lehigh Acres. He was born Sep. 12, 1957 in Louisville, KY, to the late W.G. and the late Joann (Jennings) Woosley.

Larry was such a community minded person giving a lot of his time to the LaBelle Jaycees, LaBelle Lions Club and Moose Lodge. He loved music and loved the Lord so much that he was inspired to write and record a Christian CD "Guitars in Heaven". 

Larry was a member of the 1986 Swamp Cabbage Festival Pioneer Family and was chosen in 1999 as the Swamp Cabbage Festival Grand Marshall. Former member of the Buckshot and Southbound Bands. Prior to Larry becoming ill, he drove a school bus for Hendry County. Up until December he was continuing to give guitar lessons to local children.

Larry has been a member of First Christian Church most of his life, actively involved in the music ministry, serving as an elder and Board Chairman for many years. He was also very involved in the Gathering of the Christian Men and a past President. A great man, husband, father, grandfather, uncle and friend to all!

He is survived by his wife: Ellen (Earnest) Woosley, son: L.M. Woosley, daughter: Ashley Brooke Woosley, sisters: Patti Nixon, Sherri Carpenter (Steve), Mara Woosley (Tim Loyd), grandchild, Christian D. Robertson and a host of family and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents, brothers Tommy Woosley and Danny Woosley.
