Lawrence (Larry) G. Wilcox, 88, of Indianapolis passed away September 5, 2017.  He was born on November 17, 1928 in Chicago, IL to Alfred G. and Ruth M. Wilcox. Larry was a district manager for Illinois Bell Telephone Company for 33 years, retiring in 1985.  He was married to Ruth Ellen (Kutch) Wilcox for 63 years until her death in 2014.  Together, Larry and Ruth raised six children in Highland, IN.

Larry was preceded in death by his wife Ruth, son Michael (Sandra) Wilcox and daughter Kathleen Krampian.  He is survived by daughters Patrice (Robert) Caron,  Lynn (William) Crae and Christine (Hugh) Calvin; son Martin Wilcox; eight grandchildren and seven great grandchildren.

Throughout their married life, Larry and Ruth enjoyed camping and traveled all over the United States in their RV. The highlight of their travels was a 9-month-long trip from Indiana to Mexico and up to Alaska! They talked about this trip well into their 80's. They loved Branson, Missouri, and would vacation there yearly for one to two weeks at a time to see the shows. After retiring, they lived on Shafer Lake in Monticello, IN.  While residing in Monticello, Larry served on the sewer board, serving his community, as he did all through his life from age 11 on.

In these last 10 years, Larry lived in a 55+ community where he befriended many wonderful people who looked after him like family.

   Posted Fri September 15, 2017
My heart goes out to your family. I am so sorry that you are going through this difficult time. Psalms 46:1 says, God is our refuge and strength, a help that is readily found in times of distress. And remember that God hates it when one of His children dies (Matthew 18:14, 1 Corinthians 15:26). So He makes Himself available in order to comfort us. In fact, 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4 refers to Him as the "God of all comfort". Pray to Him for strength to get through this most difficult time. Weep to Him when the words just won't come out. He will really help you (Isaiah 41:10) because He cares for you (1 Peter 5:7). And please, call upon His name found at Psalm 83:18.
