November 1, 1940 ~ April 11, 2019
Larry Paul Whitney passed away unexpectedly at his home on April 11, 2019. He was born in Ogden on November 1, 1940, to Clyde Arnold and Virginia Delphia Taylor Whitney. His father died when he was very young, and he was lovingly raised by his mother and stepfather, Alfred O. Allee.
He married Aloha Jean Muench on November 23, 1976, and together they raised a daughter and son.
Larry was very proud of his service in the U.S. Marine Corps. He also traveled with Ice Capades on the production crew. He then was a bus driver for Weber School District and projectionist at Peery's Egyptian Theater. He retired from Pioneer Adult Rehabilitation Center in Davis School District. After retirement, he was a crossing guard for Ogden City and a loyal usher for Weber State University. He had a great sense of humor and loved being around people. Golfing, fishing, camping and supporting his children and grandchildren in all of their sports and activities were his favorite pastimes.
As a member of Trinity Presbyterian Church, he assisted with Boy Scouts of America Troop 202.
Larry is survived by his wife; daughter, Jana (Errol) Bottomly; son, Ryan (Annie) Whitney; and four wonderful grandchildren: Paige, Macie, Jackson, and Cameron. He is preceded in death by his parents, stepfather, and sister, Vera Jean Owens.
