Lawrence “Larry” Wilson Halstead

October 17, 1929 - June 25, 2019

Lawrence was born October 17, 1929 to the late Lawrence Halstead and Gladys Austin Halstead.

As a teen Larry built hot rods in his barn on 7 Hawthorne St. known as Halstead Havens Hotrod Heaven. He entertained at the Perry Auditorium as a singer. He was Cub Scout Master for pack 44 as his boys grew and became scout master for Troop 43. In the mid ‘60’s he was one of the founding fathers for the Perry Emergency Ambulance Corp and was their president for a while. He enjoyed camping with his family and square dancing with his wife, Marcy in the Wyco-Promenders.

At the age of 60 and after a long career as a printer at the Perry Herald, Larry received an associate’s degree. He then went to work at Livingston County Correctional Facility as a drug and alcohol rehab counselor. During that time Larry and his wife enjoyed managing a ceramics business in their home.

Along with his parents, Lawrence is preceded in death by his beloved wife, Marcella Belle Caryl Halstead, his sister, Carol Spencer and her husband, William and several in-laws and great grandson, Lucas Dillon.
