Larry Allen Morse passed away peacefully at home on September 2nd 2020 in Oak Harbor, Washington at the age of 75. He was born in Wenatchee in 1944 to parents Ivan and Velma Morse. He grew up on the family homestead in Manson with his brother Ralph and sisters Beverly and Roberta, where they raised cattle and apples. But his real pleasure when he had a day off from work was to clear brush from a little canyon he loved. He spent many hours there.

At his mother’s urging, Larry pursued studies at Central Washington State College, graduating with Bachelor of Science in Business. Prior to starting his career in banking, Larry served with the Washington National Guard. He retired as Chief Appraiser from Pacific Northwest Bank.

Larry spent much of his life as a firefighter, beginning with the US Forest Service in the 1960s serving as a Smoke Watcher and fighting forest fires, and continuing with the North Whidbey Fire & Rescue where he started as a volunteer firefighter for 31 years, rising to the rank of Battalion Chief. He also served his community as Fire Commissioner for 6 years.

Larry was an avid photographer and outdoorsman. He loved hiking and travel, and had a special fondness for Alaska, Whistler, Mexico and North Central Washington.

In 1967, Larry married Cheryl Meyer, they had one son, Robert and relocated to Oak Harbor. In December of 1984, Larry married Kathy Johnson, and inherited three more children – Kim, Melissa and Kevin.

The family will remember Larry as a loving and generous husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather and brother. He enjoyed spending time with his 7 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren.

A Private Family Graveside Service will be at Maple Leaf Cemetery. Memorial donations are suggested to Samaritan’s Purse,

Larry and I worked together in the appraisal department at both InterWest and Pacific Northwest Bank. He was tireless in his banking and firefighting duties and was always committed to professionalism and doing the right thing. I am thankful that I had the good fortune to know him.
