Larry L. Feirick, 85

August 24, 2022

Larry L. Feirick, age 85, went home to be with the Lord, August 24, 2022, with family by his side. Larry was born August 19, 1937, in Northumberland (Norry) PA to Harry N. Feirick and Dorothy E. (Marshall) Feirick. He was the youngest of six children.

Larry lived with an open heart, constantly looking to connect with others. He enjoyed serving others and considered everyone special; worthy of being known and appreciated. Larry was a hard worker who committed his life to his family, and God. He was warm, friendly, and known for his contagious hearty belly laugh. Larry enjoyed hosting pig roasts, catering and gave generously to social and religious organizations.

Larry graduated in 1956 from Northumberland High School (Go Pine Knotters), and in 1957 from Fork Union Military Academy. On his 19th birthday Larry was baptized in the Susquehanna River after coming to know the Lord through Good News Club and the Wordless Book.

Larry played semi- pro football for the Columbia Raiders and the Harrisburg Capitals where he was a starting running back who played both offense and defense positions. He was a PIAA Football Official.

Larry began his career with Pennsylvania Power & Light (PPL) as a lineman, climbing poles before the implementation of bucket trucks. In 1971 he transitioned from first class lineman to Right of Way Agent and retired from PPL in 1995. After retiring from PPL, Larry continued to work as a consultant for Transmission and Electric Companies until retiring at age 76. Larry also held a Real Estate license.

In addition to working for PPL, Larry owned and operated several bakeries, opening his first bakery with his brother- in -law prior to graduating from high school. Over the years Larry sold baked goods at Central Market, Lancaster, Bird-in Hand Farmers Market, Bird-in –Hand, and the former Triple G Dairy, Denver, PA.

Larry was a member of Calvary Church for over 38 years where he served as a fifth grade Sunday school teacher. Larry enjoyed helping with Conestoga Valley School District’s Bible Adventure Club. When his musical wife Pat passed earlier this year, Larry organized hymn singing with new friends at Village Manor, Brethren Village.

Larry was preceded in death by his wife, Patricia Jayne Young, four siblings: Anna (Clark) Binderup, LaRena (Eddie) Spotts, Tom (Jane Weaver), Mary (Melvin) Eby and brother-in-law Harry Anderson.

Larry is survived by sons Lee (Esther Stralnic), Camp Hill, PA, Jeffrey (Carol Barber), Lafayette, IN, daughters Melody (Greg) Dillman, Leola PA and M.J. Feirick, Lancaster, PA, sister Nancy (Harry Anderson), Lancaster, PA, eight grandchildren in order by birth: Jedd (Kim Wertz) Dillman, Thomas Feirick, Cole Dillman, Alicia Dillman Shuey (Peter Shuey). Rory Feirick, Calvin Feirick, Cathy Feirick, Josiah Feirick and great grandson, Simon Shuey.

Our sincere sympathy to Larry’s family.  We both knew Larry from his many visits to the Lancaster County Courthouse.  He was always a joy to talk to.  Numerous times he would bring in one of his delicious cakes that he made.  Nobody could bake like Larry.  We are both thankful that Larry was part of our lives.  He was a very special person.  RIP, Larry.

I worked with Larry for many years and he was not only a co worker but he was a dear friend.  I will miss him at our Shady Maple breakfasts.  It will not be the same without him.  My thoughts and prayers go out to his entire family.  He will be dearly missed by many.

Larry, It was the sincere pleasure for this Sunbury native to have gotten to know you a Northumberland native over the past ten years. Hopefully the buffet in heaven has all your favorite foods and desserts. Rest in peace Larry Feirick.

Larry was truly one of the nicest gentleman I have ever known. He lived his faith out to those around him, and set a wonderful example of a man after God’s own Heart. Many blessings to all the family as they adjust to life without his presence.

We knew your Mom & Dad for many years.  We enjoyed many pig roasts and great days at Knoebels Park.   I first met Larry at Right of Way “school” at PP&L.   Your Mom and my wife shared the same maiden name.  Patricia Young!!!   I talked with your Dad at least once a week.   We shared our thoughts and values.   I am going to miss those once a week phone calls.   But I know that Pat & Larry are back together.  For that we are thankful.   God has blessed us by having Pat & Larry in our lives.  May God provide the family with the strength that is needed at this time…………Love, Pat & Bob Bartholomew

13Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. 14For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. 15According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. 16For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. 18Therefore encourage one another with these words.
The most encouraging words in the Bible!!!

I never had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Feirick, however I had the privilege to work with his son Lee. Such a wonderful and heartwarming family.

August 30, 2022

To Lee and the Feirick family: Please accept our condolences on the passing of your Dad, and belated condolences on the passing of your Mom. It is very difficult to lose both parents in such a short time span, but be strong and have faith that they are together again in heaven.

Psalms 116:15 states “Precious in law sight of the Lord is the death of His saints.”
Now that he is in Heaven with Jesus, he can receive all that God has promised in His Word🙏🏼🙏🏼
