~ Obituary ~

Larry Edward Yancey was born to James Edward Yancey and Helena Sampson Yancey on November 29, 1964 in Norfolk Virginia. On Wednesday, April 15, 2021, GOD called a dear father, grandfather, brother, and friend to his heavenly rest.

Larry Edward Yancey was educated in Norfolk, VA where he was a proud Booker at the historical Booker T. Washington High School. He was employed with the City of Norfolk and several restaurants through-out his career. He was a man of many talents and a true entrepreneur. He was a Cowboys fan for sure but loved all sports. He enjoyed watching westerns, dancing, singing, telling jokes, and spending time with his family most of all. For his grandchildren, he always had an encouraging word to direct them in the right direction. Larry viewed and treated everyone he met as family.

He is preceded in death by his parents, grandmother, Eleese Lee, three sisters, Toni Reid, Regina Yancey and Debra Barrington, and a special sister-in-law, Jacqueline Yancy.

Larry leaves to cherish his memory, a son, Larry Perry (Lil Larry) and a daughter, Regina Craddock-Williams (Eric Sr.); a brother, Ronald Yancey, and a sister, Dell Masonette. He also leaves behind his pride and joy, his grandchildren: Calvin Craddock-Yancey, Erica Williams, and Eric Williams, Jr.; a special aunt, Willie Bee Brown, a special mother, Janice Hendricks, and a special cousin, Reginald Sampson; many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephew, and many loving friends.

While he is no longer with us, Larry Edward Yancey will live on in the hearts and minds of all who loved him.
