Larry W. Mason, 85, rural Logansport, passed away Friday morning, February 19, 2021, at his home.
Born on Christmas Day 1935, in Kokomo, he was the son of the late Leonard W. and Ruth Elizabeth (Smith) Mason. He was a 1954 graduate of Bunker Hill High School.
On September 19, 1954, in Onward, he married the love of his life, Carolyn C. (Piercy) Mason who preceded him in death on June 8, 2016.
