Larry’s Obituary

Larry Delma Hamilton was born on August 6, 1957 to the late Raymond and Gussie Mae Hamilton. On Friday, August 18, 2023 at Haven Hospice in Palatka, Florida, Larry peacefully accepted the perfect will of God.

He began his education at Oak Grove Elementary School in Johnson Crossroads and later graduated in 1975 at Interlachen High School in Interlachen, FL. He was known for always helping others. Prior to his sickness, Larry always took care of his mother and took great pride in taking care of her and her plants and flowers. Larry loved his family and close friends. He will truly be missed by many.

Larry accepted Christ at an early age and was a very active member of Trinity United Missionary Baptist Church. He served as Superintendent of the Sunday School Ministry, member of the Usher Board Ministry, member of the Youth/Young Adult Choir, and member of the Sound Group Ministry. In addition to Trinity, Larry also sang in the Second Bethlehem Baptist Association Choir and would always bring his mother to district events.

He was employed at the University of Florida for 40 years and was the Supervisor over custodial services. He later retired in 2015. He continued to work for Campus Credit Union for many years until his mom took ill and he cared for her full-time.

Larry was preceded in death by his parents Raymond and Gussie Mae Hamilton, sister, Constance Jacobs, one aunt, Gracie Mae Swain Herring, and three uncles, James Swain, Burdell Strickland, and Amos Strickland.
