Larry Ward

Larry Ward, 77, of Hendersonville passed away on Monday, February 15, 2021 at Mission Hospital.  He was born in Hendersonville to the late Meritte W. and Charlotte Dill Ward.  Larry was also preceded in death by his brother, Ted Ward.

Larry worked at GE for 35 years and was of the Baptist faith.  He enjoyed bird watching and car shows.  Larry coached youth baseball for 20 years.  Larry was known by many as “Paw” as he shared his love and advice freely just as everyone was family.

Left to cherish his memory are his loving wife of 61 years, Becky Ward; sons, David (Sophia) of Hendersonville, Ronnie (Jimmie) of Hartwell, GA, Gene (Kim) of Hendersonville, and Scott (Stephanie) of Sevierville, TN; grandchildren, Jennifer Picher, Heath Ward, Timothy Ward, Tiffany Gordon, Whitney Ward, Brittany Ward and Mackenzie Ward; step-grandchildren, Ashley Mayer and Lillian Dupont; 11 great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews and other family members.  Larry will be missed until we see him again.  We love and miss you “Paw.”

The family will gather at the Ward residence.  The graveside service will take place on Friday, February 19, 2021 at 11am at Oakdale Cemetery, with Larry’s grandson, Heath Ward, officiating.
