Larry Piercy

Larry Piercy, 49, of Kansas City, passed away Friday, January 24, 2014. A memorial service in honor of his life will be held at the North Kansas City Community Center, 1999 Iron, North Kansas City, Missouri on Thursday, January 30, in Rooms B and C from 6 to 8 p.m. The event will include remarks from his loved ones, military honors, and a celebration of Larry’s love and integrity. His soul is at rest, but his memory lives on.

Larry was born June 20, 1964, to Larry H. Piercy and Mary L. Rodriguez. He served in the United States Air Force and Army National Guard, and worked most of his life as a technological engineer. A loving father, husband, brother, and friend, he will be survived by his brother, Tony; his sisters, Helen and Teresa; his sons, Lucas and Stephan; and their mother, Suzan. Those who knew him experienced a kind and generous man, the type of man who would give you the shirt off his back. His earthly presence will be dearly missed.

    There is such a difference in “Friend” and acquaintance. I feel truly blessed to sincerely be able to call Larry a true friend. Not many people have come into my life that I have felt this way about. A bear hug, and always a smile. Thanks Larry for being my friend. I will miss you I am thinking of your family and share with them the loss of a wonderful person. Thanks for always being there. My deepest condolences to everyone who called you friend

    I have had the pleasure of working with Larry over the years at Sprint and was really shocked with the untimely death of a colleague and friend. Please accept our most heartfelt sympathies for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Piercy family during this difficult time.

    My Condolences to Larry’s family. May Larry rest in peace.

  15. Herb Glaser on January 30, 2014 at 9:49 am

    Larry and I worked together at Kansas Cellular for several years. I helped train him as a Switch Technician in the very beginning. It take long for Larry to well surpass me, and help me out several times in my career. Although we went our different ways over the years Larry was always a great friend. He always talked highly of his two sons Lucas and Stephan. He will be missed by everyone that had the pleasure of ever getting to know him. I miss you buddy, and pray the family can find some sort of peace in the days, weeks, months, and years to come. I know Larry will continue to look after everyone of his friends and family members as he has always done. May God Bless.

  16. bruce & janice manuel on January 30, 2014 at 10:09 am

    I knew Larry from his years at Sprint. No words can sufficiently convey the sense of loss we feel or the compassion for his family & friends. The best we say is that Larry, his family and friends are in our prayers.

  17. Wen Xue on January 30, 2014 at 11:04 am

    Larry was a great engineer and a great person. At work, no matter how busy he was, he always had time to help me out. We filed a patent together. That was fun and good money 🙂

    I miss you, Larry.

  18. Monica Augusto on January 30, 2014 at 12:07 pm

    Helen and Teresa:

  19. Pat August on January 30, 2014 at 12:45 pm

    I had the pleasure of working with Larry for the past 12 years. He was an expert in his work and would always find time to work on our projects and issues no matter how busy he was. He was always friendly and positive. His passing is a great loss to his friends and coworkers at Sprint. I can’t imagine the pain Larry’s passing has caused his family. I’m not in the KC area and it’s with great sorrow I’ll be there for the service tonight.

    You are all in my thoughts and prayers, Pat August

    I don’t know how to start to express my condolences to Larry’s family and friends. Larry was one of my closest friends for over 13 years, and I have so many memories of him that it would take a lifetime to tell. He will be missed every day, and his memory will live on with all of us that knew him. My life is better from having Larry in it and I’ll never forget him.

  21. Alex Zhang on January 30, 2014 at 1:17 pm

    I had the pleasure to know and work with Larry on different projects at Sprint in the past 14-15 years. He was an excellent engineer, extremely knowledgeable in his area. He was always willing to help out. My deepest condolences to Larry’s family.

  22. JoAnn Kilian on January 30, 2014 at 2:38 pm

    I have worked with Larry for more than 12 years. There are no words to express how shocked & saddend I & the Translations’ community was to hear of his passing. He will truly be missed!
    Although I never met his sons (Lucas & Stephan), I felt as though I knew them with all the stories Larry has told us…he was very proud of Lucas & Stephan!
    Larry has truly touched our lives and will forever be remembered!

  23. Rudy Maier on January 30, 2014 at 3:02 pm

    I had the pleasure of working with Larry for 9 years. He was always someone I have looked up to. He was extremely knowledgeable and always willing to help. He had a great sense of humor and was just a great guy. People like Larry do not come around often and I am honored to have known him. He will be sorely missed.

  24. Amar Bajracharya on January 30, 2014 at 4:17 pm

    Larry will be missed. May he rest in peace. Wish Family and loved ones get enough courage from almighty to deal with this difficult situation.

  25. Jeremy Fobes on January 30, 2014 at 5:10 pm

    I worked with Larry several years ago at Kansas Cellular. He was shift lead at the time. Larry was one of kindest most helpful co-workers you could ask for. He never minded taking a minute out of whatever he was doing to explain something or to assist others. I lost touch with Larry for several years and only recently re-connected with him. I know he’ll be missed by a great number of friends and relatives. My condolences to all of you.

  26. Sandra Thompson on February 1, 2014 at 8:57 am

    Someone as special as Larry will never be forgotten. I have worked with Larry for many years at Sprint. He was always very knowledgeable and went out of his way to be helpful when technical support was needed. He had a friendly and outgoing personality which made him a joy to work with. Wishing you peace and courage through this difficult time. Larry will remain in our hearts forever.

  27. Risë Cockerm on February 1, 2014 at 10:56 pm

    I’ve worked with Larry at Sprint for a few years. He knew his craft and was helpful on many occasions. I got the opportunity to meet him in person for the first time this past December. He was friendly and always jovial. Though he will be greatly missed, what a blessing it has been to have known him. Family, I pray that your happy memories of Larry will outweigh your sorrow and may his spirit be with you always! Amen.

  28. Steve Smith on February 4, 2014 at 2:01 pm

    Larry was one of the persons I went to when I had technical questions. He was truly an expert and friendly to work with, as well. It was good to see the memorial service was overflowing. That says a lot about Larry as a person. My prayers are with you.

  29. Jay Periathamby on February 9, 2014 at 7:18 pm

    Larry, I have known you for many years. You are such a wonderful person to work with and always provide the support without any hesitation. You will be missed and remain in our hearts.

  30. Helen on February 11, 2014 at 10:07 pm

    I just wanted to Thank everyone for the Beautiful things you have said about my brother Larry Piercy and yr condolences to us all! Means more than you know!

  31. Jen Ramirez on February 13, 2014 at 8:33 am

    My eyes filled with tears when I found out Larry was gone. I keep wishing that this wasn’t real. My only comfort is that my heart tells me I know I’ll see him again. Larry spent his life helping others and put his family and friends above his own needs. He was very goal oriented and always willing to listen or offer advise if you needed it. His values and beliefs were amazing. Larry was just a selfless man who always tried to steer people into doing the right thing. His ethics were his most important characteristic. Larry was my cousin and I will miss him more than words can say. – Jen Ramirez
