Larry Dean Himes passed away on Thursday December 19, 2019. He is survived by his lifelong companion and wife Susan Himes as well as his four children, Matthew and his wife Julie, Curtis and his partner Allison, Leslie and her husband Jim, and Tyson and his partner Charlotte, his father Clair and mother Beverly, his three sisters, Sherry, Judy, and Julie, and his grandchildren, Braidin and Mason. Along with his immediate family, Larry is survived by uncles, aunts, cousins, nephews, and nieces living in and around Warren County. Larry held the family together. He was a steady and positive influence in everyone’s lives. He loved sports, his Penn State Nittany Lions and Cleveland Browns, the outdoors, hiking, kayaking, and boating, as well as hunting. He loved the beauty of the outdoors. Sometimes he would just sit all day in the stillness and quiet, completely at peace. Though he tried to hide it, Larry had a softer heart than us all. He cared so deeply and beautifully. It was in these small, hidden moments that his deep humanity was exposed, and we will cherish those memories forever. He will live on through his family and many friends. He will live on through the stories he would tell with so much charisma. One time he told a story so hard he broke a coffee table. Those stories will continue to be told and the children of his children will know him so well. He had a terrific sense of humor and always lifted the spirits of those around him. He was rock solid, a true working class hero. He gave his children a chance to succeed through a lifetime of labor at Penelec, the Seneca hydroelectric power plant, and through his membership in IBEW 459. He is proof that hard work, commitment, and living with dignity pay off enormously. Larry left behind an enviable legacy. He will be sorely missed. There will be a celebration of life for family and friends at the Allegheny Community Center, 42 Clark Street, Warren, PA, at 2pm on Sunday December 22, 2019. Arrangements have been entrusted to the Donald E. Lewis Funeral Home, Inc., 304 East Street, Warren, PA. E-mail condolences may be sent by visiting
