Preceded also by his father, Clarence H Pell, mother Phala Mary, stepmother Marie, and brother Ronald, he is survived by four adoring children raised in Kailua, HI – Martin Lawrence, Lorena Marie, Lani Mercedes and Leanne Dominique — twelve grandchildren, three great grandchildren and scores of nieces and nephews.

Larry Pell

Having attended high school in Hawaii (Iolani) and California (Palo Alto), Larry went on to serve with the US Marines in Korea and Japan. He was retired from his most recent position as a manager from TRW-Hawaii.

He passed away peacefully, after his extended family and friends gathered at his home to share his love, humor and happy disposition, which he maintained right to the end.

It is Larry’s and Mercedes’ wish to have their ashes spread at Kailua Beach, where they spent many happy years raising their children.
