Age 80, graduated to his heavenly reward on Saturday January 8, 2022. Larry’s greatest desire was to see his Savior, Jesus Christ. He was born December 19, 1941 in Canton to the late Arthur L. and Dorothy M. (Bible) Rine. He was a U.S. Army veteran and retired from Sugardale Foods after 30 years of service. He was honored to be a part of the 20-gallon blood donor group at Aultman Hospital. He greatly enjoyed learning his genealogy, tracing his ancestors back into the 1700’s and learning of his native American heritage tracing to the Shawnee, Cherokee and Delaware. Larry leaves many inspirational writings under the names, Lawrence Parrish and Falling Light to his family and friends. Family was his passion knowing that we are all children from one Creator, and we are all part of His family. Larry will be looking forward to seeing all again. Larry is survived by his wife, Sheila Y. (Finnicum) to whom he was married 54 years; three sons, Lon (Bobbi), Lance (Victoria) and Seth (Susie) Dean; seven grandchildren, Sarah, Brent and Chastity Dean, Brittany (Seth) Taylor, Amber (Will) Wauffull, Colton (Fabby) Dean and Dakota Dean; five great-grandchildren, Hazel Taylor, Maverick and Lincoln Wauffull, Emerett and Loviah Dean; one brother, David (Dolleen) Rine; two sisters, Sandra Selway (Bob Clark) and Donna (Larry) Deem; many nieces, nephews and three aunts.
