Larry Mason

November 05, 1949 - August 18, 2022


Larry Mason, age 72, of Quincy, died on Thursday, August 18, 2022, at 2:15 pm in Heritage Health in Mt. Sterling, Illinoins.

Larry was born November 5, 1949 in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, the son of Aulton J. "A.J." and Edith Muriel Carpenter Mason.

Larry moved into South Park Place on September 15, 1998, and he later moved into Briarwood Court in April 2007. In his younger years, Larry participated in scouting. Larry participated in the work program through Transitions until his retirement, and he enjoyed being home. During his retirement, Larry enjoyed a weekly lunch appointment with his friend, Bobby. He was also always very excited to get to visit with his favorite staff member, Kevin, at Garden Grove Court, and to have coffee with his good friend, Bill, a few times a week.

Christmas was his favorite time of year. Larry enjoyed watching westerns and was an avid movie collector. He loved watching church services on TV daily and was very sentimental about his love for his Lord.

Survivors include two brothers, Richard Mason of Oceanside, CA, and Ronald Mason of Downers Grove, IL; several nieces and nephews; and his friends from Briarwood Court.

Larry was preceded in death by his parents.
