In Memory of Larry Lee Mersereau

January 16, 1957 - July 24, 2011




Sad news.

Larry Mersereau of Chico Towing had a massive heart attack while at Ocean Shores this weekend. Larry spent hours sitting in his big red tow truck watching over our drivers and they traversed the road courses at Bremerton and Pacific. Always willing to lend a hand, he was a special person. Larry you'll be missed. Our thoughts and prayers to his family and friends at Chico Towing and beyond. R.I.P. Larry

A Celebration of Life will be held Sunday July 31 at Brother Don's in Bremerton, 1-4PM. Come share the stories of Larry's life with his friends and family.


From the Kitsap Sun

"Uncle Larry" passed away suddenly of a heart attack at Ocean Shores while camping with some of his closest friends. Just the previous day he had enjoyed a round of golf in the best sunshine we'd seen yet.

If you knew Uncle Larry, you were family. Everyone also knew that he most enjoyed his endless practical jokes, which no one was safe from. He was a regular at "church" (Brother Don's) to have a cocktail and visit with friends. Any casino was a great casino. In the last few years he had taken up golf, and enjoyed fishing, camping, and skiing. He was especially proud of sharing his culinary specialties of homemade potato soup and fry bread with friends and family. It would be a rare occasion to catch him without change in his pocket to hand off to kids for a soda or treat.

While Larry never married, he was surrounded by bloodline and adopted family. As the youngest of four children, he was born in Crescent City, CA and after several relocates finally grew roots in Bremerton in the early 90's.

Before returning to Bremerton, Larry worked as an over-the-road truck driver. For the past 20 years he worked in the family business of Chico Towing and was an irreplaceable resource.

Besides his Chico family, and close community friends, he is survived by brother Chuck Sturdevant of Crescent City, CA, and sister Yvonne Baisler (Norman) of Bremerton, WA. He is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews, including Chuck, Craig, Scott, Neal, Tina, Herk, Stacey, Kelsi, Keri and Corey.

Larry was preceded in death by his mother Blanche Mersereau, father George Mersereau, and sister Penny Tucker.

As he would want it, a Celebration of Life will be held at Brother Don's on Sunday, July 31, from 1-4 p.m. Please come to raise your glass in his memory, share some laughs, and enjoy all of the people so important to him.
