Larry William Muse, 73, of Burgaw passed from his earthly life on Sunday, January 21, 2018 at Lower Cape Fear Hospice Care Center.
He was born July 19, 1944 in Harrisburg, Arkansas, the son of the late William Grady and Burnice White Muse. Larry was also preceded in death by his daughter,Tina Freeman.
Larry leaves to cherish his memory his wife of 46 years, Portia Ann Rooks Muse; children, Larry William Muse II (Parastoo), Windy Foss (Jeff), Jason Muse (Leslie) and Tracy Muse (Kathy); eleven grandchildren; one great granddaughter; brothers, Tommy Muse (Amanda), Freddy Muse (Joyce), Jimmy Muse (Theresa), and Mickey Muse (Kim); sister, Regina Jenkins; and many nieces and nephews.
Larry was a member of Riley’s Creek Baptist Church. He loved his his country, serving with honor and distinction in the US Marine Corps during the Cuban Crisis. As a marine he was "one of the few" and "the proud". As a chosen career, Larry was a truck driver and for over 30 years was owner of his trucking company, L & M Trucking.
First and foremost Larry loved his family, especially his grandchildren, who he enjoyed riding on his motorcycle and teaching life skills. His outgoing personality won him many friends weather on the golf course, just joking around with folks or out for a ride on his motorcycle. Larry’s departure leaves an empty place at our family table and in our hearts.
The family will receive friends at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, January 24, 2018 at Riley’s Creek Baptist Church Fellowship Hall with service beginning at 12 noon in the church sanctuary.
