Jan 2, 1947 - April 22, 2023
Lawrence C. Woolheater, 76, of Hollidaysburg, died peacefully at home on Saturday. He was born in Huntingdon, son of the late Lawrence Jackson and Elizabeth (Snyder) Woolheater. He married Barbara A. DeMay.
Surviving are his wife of 49 years; two sons: Jeffrey A. (Marissa) of Ft. Lauderdale, FL and Mark A. (Lindsey) of Hollidaysburg; a grandson, Benjamin Mark; a granddaughter, Ellie Elizabeth; and a sister, Azure Montaig of Hollidaysburg.
Larry was a graduate of Hollidaysburg High School, Hagerstown Jr. College with an A.A. in Business, and Penn State with a B.S. in Education.
He served in the US Navy as a Supply Petty Officer, with his last duty station being the U.S.S Milwaukee.
After 33 years as an elementary school teacher in the Altoona/Johnstown Diocese School System, he retired but continued to substitute teach for many years.
Larry enjoyed sports, never missing any of his son’s sporting events and coaching them along the way. He liked winter trips to Ft. Lauderdale with his wife and golden retriever, Cubby, hunting, fishing, and vegetable gardening. In retirement, he wrote a book called “Out for Trout”.
Music to his ear was a beagle running a rabbit in the fall or a trout slapping the water from a May Fly Hatch in the spring.
Friends will be received from 4 to 6pm Friday April 28, 2023, at Sorge Funeral Home & Crematory Inc., Hollidaysburg. A private celebration of life will be held at a later date.
Interment at Alto Reste Park.
