BROOKFIELD -  Larry R. Holmes, 64, of Brookfield passed away on Sunday March 28th in his home surrounded by his family. After a courageous battle with cancer, he was welcomed into heaven by his Father.

He was born May 20, 1956 in Titusville, Pa a son of Paul L. Holmes and Elsiemae Holmes.

Larry was a 1975 graduate of Maplewood High School where he owned the basketball court and made the number 44 famous.

He married his soulmate Sherry Bland on October 21, 1978 and welcomed three beautiful children. Daughter Larissa Holmes of Leavittburg, Daughter Gwendolyn Holmes of Brookfield, and Son Levi Holmes of Brookfield.  He is also survived by four brothers: Calvin, Randy, Curtis, and Timothy Homes; and one sister, Teresa Holmes.

His passions were Nascar, bird watching, fishing and spending time with family. But most of all was watching his grandson Leon own the basketball court wearing the number 44. And proudly listening to his granddaughter Chloe play her heart out in the band.

He was welcomed into heaven by several family members including his father, Paul L. Holmes, nephews Ryan Holmes, Dakota Holmes and Joshua Holmes, multiple cousins and friends.

There will be no services per his request, but a Celebration of Life with family and friends will be planned at a later date.
