Lawrence “Larry” Parker
Larry passed away peacefully at his Newport Beach home on Sept. 12. His wife, Gloria, several of his adult children, daughters-in-law and son-in-law and grandchildren were at his side. Larry was born and raised in Detroit, where he attended St. Benedict’s School. He graduated from Loyola University in Los Angeles, and began a long, successful career as an insurance agent and financial planner in Southern California. Larry had a large and loving family and an extensive circle of friends. We will miss him dearly. The Parker family invites his friends to join us for a Funeral Mass for Larry at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church, 1441 W. Balboa Blvd., Newport Beach, on Saturday, Oct. 9 at 11:00 a.m. Reception to follow.
