Larry Charles Sang, Sr.

CLAREMORE — A celebration of the life of Larry Charles Sang, Sr., will be 10 a.m., Friday, June 14 at Rice Funeral Service, 631 East Will Rogers Boulevard, Claremore, OK 74017.  His son, Larry Sang Jr. will be officiating.  Burial will follow at Woodlawn Cemetery.

Larry Sr. wished for everyone to attend in casual OU gear if you support his beloved Crimson and Cream.  Otherwise, he wanted everyone to represent their preferred team. Larry passed away, Sunday, June 9, 2013 at his home in Claremore, Okla. He was 61.

Larry was born November 12, 1951 in Blackwell, Okla. to Lee and Lou Sang.  He attended Blackwell Senior High School and began his lifelong career as a Heating and Air Technician and talented Tinsmith thereafter. He enjoyed to work and anytime help was needed, Larry was there to lend a hand.  This is what made him whole; he was a truly authentic giver.  He was also an avid fisherman and a huge fan of the University of Oklahoma Sooners.

Larry is survived by his two children, Larry Jr. and his wife Jessica of Claremore, Okla., Jennifer Sullivan and her husband Harold of Ponca City, OK; four grandchildren, Alexia and Isabella Sang, and Denton and Grayson Sullivan; brother Daryl Sang and wife Lucretia; sister-in-law Toni Sang; many nieces and nephews; and partner Pam Zincke and her children.  He was preceded in death by his parents, Lee and Lou, his children Randy Allen and Lorie Anne, brothers Jim and Frank Sang, and wife Judy Sang.
