Larry Karl Hume

April 02, 1942-March 10, 2020


Larry Karl Hume, 77, a lifelong resident of Sheridan, passed away on March 10, 2020 surrounded by his loving family. Larry was born on April 02, 1942 to the late Ivan Coble Hume and Gladys A. (Robey) Hume in Lebanon, Indiana.  Larry was a graduate of Sheridan High School’s Class of 1960. Larry traveled out to California for a short stay after graduation, and upon return to Indiana joined the US Army, serving 1961-1964.  After serving, he returned home to Sheridan IN, where he met and married Lynn Purdy. They were married on March 20, 1966 and had been at each other’s side for 53 years.  Lynn preceded him in death, September 28, 2019.

Larry retired from the US Postal Service after 35 years of service in 2003.

Larry is survived by his three children: Perry (Cheri) Hume, Lana Hume, and Tina (Brett) Tillison.  Larry loved visiting and playing with grandchildren and great grandchildren. He looked forward to each visit.  Larry was a proud Pappaw to Brent (Lee) Hume, Kya Marsh, Tyler Hume, Shey Tillison and Jed Tillison. He is also survived by her great grandchildren: Harrison, Lincoln, and Peyton Hume. Larry was a loving brother to Ivalou Mary Hume Gray preceding Larry in death.

Larry enjoyed woodworking with remarkable ingenuity.  He enjoyed coaching his son’s baseball teams throughout his youth, along with coaching his daughter’s softball teams.  His main pleasure was spectating his children and grandchildren’s sporting events.  He loved and cared for his family with great pride.  Larry touched many lives with his kindness and sense of fun.  He brought immeasurable joy with his creativity and orneriness. In his ladder years, his favorite pastime was sitting on his deck, drinking coffee, watching the birds and visiting with family and friends.

To the family,
It was with deep regret that I heard of the passing of your father. He was certainly a great classmate of the class of 60 from Sheridan High School. We were good friends and I appreciated his friendship.
Even though our lives went in different directions, I will never forget the friendship we had.
Our prayers are with you and this solemn time in your lives.

Very sorry to hear of Larry’s passing. I worked with him during his entire career. I learned a lot about the mail carrier job. Enjoyed working with him. Had many good times talking about the old SHS-Westfield rivalry. Seems he and Sheridan always got the better end of it. He and Lynn were a great couple. Miss them both.

Very sorry hearing of Larry’s passing. I worked with him his entire career at PO. I learned a lot about being a mail carrier. Lots of good times. We often cussed and discussed the “old” SHS-Westfield rivalry. Seems SHS always got the best of it. Larry and Lynn were a great couple and good friends. Miss both of them.9
