Larry P. Mosher, 69, of Galesburg, Michigan, passed away after a short illness on Thursday, February 18, 2021. He was born in South Bend, Indiana, on August 25, 1951, to Warren and Beverly Mosher, who preceded him in death. He was united in marriage to Robin Alanen on December 30, 1983.
Larry is survived by his wife of 37 years; children Nicole Mosher, Liisa (Dylan) Mosher-Hale, and Matthew Mosher; 1 grandchild and 1 great-grandchild. Larry is also survived by his brother Michael (Helen) Mosher and several nieces and nephews.
Larry was a proud Eagle Scout who later became a Scout Leader for Troop 265 of Galesburg. He was a 1970 graduate of Utica High School and went on to attend Michigan Technological University, earning a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering in 1974. While in college, he participated in the ROTC program and was a member of Alpha Phi Omega National Service Fraternity. After graduation, Larry served in the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers. He then started his career and was an Aerospace Engineer for over 40 years. Larry believed in working hard and doing the job well, but he also prioritized his family. If he couldn't attend his children's events he would have them recorded so he could watch later. Larry was a hunter and enjoyed outdoor activities. He enjoyed cars, especially his prized 1986 Jaguar XJS-C. He loved airplanes (His favorite was the P-51.) and going to airshows, like the EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. He was a member of Haven Reformed Church in Kalamazoo. Larry was known to give good advice and be a loyal friend to all who knew him. His sudden passing has left a void that cannot be filled.
Larry has donated his body to Michigan State University's Body Donation Program. He was a firm believer in advancing the education of others through science, his parents leading the way with their own donations. He will eventually be laid to rest with military honors at Fort Custer National Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Larry's honor to: Haven Reformed Church or BSA Troop 265.
