The family of Larry E. Cochran is in need of your help.
Larry Cochran passed April 24, 2018. He first started having problems after injuring his back 5 years ago. Due to his injury he was unable to do up keep on the home he shared with his wife Nancy. Being on a very fixed income there has been so much that he wasn’t able to do. Now after his passing the family is left with medical and household bills, a non-working furnace and now funeral expenses.
Larry was a talented musician who loved to entertain. He was very hard working. His family will tell you that one value he instilled in all of them was that of a hard day’s work. He was always willing to help others often taking less fortunate church members on fishing trips so that they could gain meaningful life experiences. Above all he was a terrific father. After working all day, he would come home, kick off his boots and go back outside to throw a ball with his kids.
The family wants to honor Larry and the legacy he left behind but they need your help. A donation in any amount whether large or small is extremely appreciated.
Donations may be made both on tmcfunding.com or may be made at the Calcutta Chapel of the Martin MacLean Altmeyer Funeral Homes.
