Larry E. Postiy 75, peacefully went to heaven on Friday, May 28, 2021, following an extended illness. He was born October 20, 1945 in Alliance, Ohio to Michael and Eileen (Albert) Postiy. He graduated from Sebring McKinley High School in 1964, and attended The Ohio State University. He also served as member of The Army National Guard.
Larry relocated to Warren, Ohio with the love of his life Mary Lou ( Pastore). Soon after their first date at The Robins Theater, they were married on May 1, 1971. It has been said that “life is not measured by the breaths you take, but by the moments that take your breath away." Mary Lou took Larry’s breath away for 50 wonderful years of marriage. Years they spent dancing, loving one another, and the life they had built together filled with family and friends, and their shared love of both.
Larry had a strong work ethic and saw his professional pursuits as a way of providing the best life possible for his beloved family. He spent his career at the P & LE Railroad .He was also a member of the VFW Post 1090, and in his later years active in SCOPE.
A man of faith, he was a devoted member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church where he was the loudest member of the choir. He loved to sing, indeed. He was always good for a song. A song of faith, an oldie but a goody, (just like him), or the songs he loved to sing with his daughter ( Michelle).
Larry leaves to cherish his memory his wife, the former Mary Lou ( Pastore), his daughter Michelle Postiy (Joe Shesko) and his son Matthew Postiy all of Warren. His sister Robin Zupanic (Ken), and his brothers Richard Postiy and Michael Postiy.
He also leaves his three granddaughters whom he loved deeply. He was their date to dances (where he lit up the dance floor) and was the leader of their cheering section. Seeing them grow and thrive was his life’s greatest joy. Larry loved being Grandpa to Gabrielle, Gianna, & Mia Bella Jones, who will carry him always in their hearts.
Due to current circumstances, there will be no memorial service. To honor his memory, the family ask that you perform an act of kindness, then look up to the sunny summer sky, and dance to a song you or someone you love is singing, loudly, just like Larry.
He lived fully and loved greatly. It would be his wish, that we all do the same.
