Lawrence James Gervais
Lawrence James Gervais, age 79, of Harrison, Arkansas, passed away
December 29, 2020. He entered this life July 16, 1941, in Milwaukee,
Wisconsin, the son of Edward and Margaret (Aaron) Gervais. Preceding
him in death are his parents; loving wife, June Marie (Garrison) Gervais;
and two brothers: Frank and Jim Gervais.
Larry was eager to serve our country with the Army Airborne and joined at
the age of 14. The Army did not find out his age until he had already
parachuted into hostile territory and then sent him home. His favorite
pastimes were telling jokes (always), playing cards with his best friend,
Robert “Ty” Dean, watching the geese on his pond, going to activities with
his church, Ozarks Crossroads, and giving his caregiver, Cora Edwards, a
very special lady, a hard time (just kidding). Prior to his strokes, Larry was
enthusiastically involved as a volunteer at NARMC (North Arkansas
Regional Medical Center) hospital in Harrison.
Larry wished no fuss, hence there is no service currently planned. He has
donated his body for research purposes to MedCure through the help of
Cremations of the Ozarks. To leave an online condolence, please visit www.cremationsoftheozarks.com .
