Larry Edward Douglas, Sr.

August 15, 1951 — July 6, 2024


Larry Edward Douglas, Sr., 72 of Athens, went to be with the Lord Saturday evening, July 6, 2024 at Riverside Methodist Hospital in Columbus. Born August 15, 1951 in Athens, he was the son of the late Oba Douglas, Jr. And Janet McClean Lawrence.

Larry had a passion for woodworking and spent many hours at the lake fishing. He retired from the Athens City School District after over 35 years of loyal service where he was respected by all his colleagues and friends for his hard work ethic and leadership skills. His quick whit and high spirits would always light the room with smiles. His woodworking expertise entailed the finest details, no matter should he be constructing a rocking horse for a child or building a clock. His compassion was endless and he will be greatly missed by all who had the honor to call him a friend.
