Obituary for Larry Lee Harrell

Larry Lee HarrellLarry L. Harrell, loving husband, father, brother, son and friend, passed away January 18, 2019 at his home in Hendersonville, Tennessee. Born December 25, 1951 in Marion, Indiana to Patricia and Donald Harrell.

Larry earned a BS from Indiana University and attended the University of Tennessee for postgraduate studies before moving to Nashville where he spent the first half of his career in patient education at Vanderbilt and Westside hospitals. As owner of Turtle Creek Garden Specialties on Bransford Ave. in Nashville (1998-2003), Larry and brother-in-law Chris Hines were regular features at area lawn and garden shows and provided many homes and businesses throughout middle Tennessee and southern Kentucky with fountains and other garden hardscape. Larry began teaching in the Sumner County School System in 2004 and soon thereafter joined Station Camp Middle School where he taught science until his retirement in 2017.

Although living with cancer for years, Larry never let the disease limit him. He continued to live life to the fullest until the end, most recently pursuing his love for travel by visiting the Biltmore at Christmas. Larry will be remembered for his dry wit, love of boardgames, and respect for nature. He enjoyed playing golf and cooking. His gentle demeanor belied a will of steely determination and unyielding courage that enabled him to endure unimaginable suffering while protecting family and friends from pain. Perhaps his most important influence was the unwavering faith he had in others, especially his students, that continues to inspire each of us to believe in ourselves and never give up.

floral squareLarry is preceded in death by his mother, Patricia Harrell. He is survived by his wife of 25 years, Kimberly Hines Harrell; daughter, Kelsey Harrell Fryer (Cameron); grandson, Scott; brother, Michael Harrell (Vicki); father, Don Harrell; parents-in-law, Joyce and Louis Hines; and a very close family of loving cousins, sisters and brothers-in-law, nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great- nephews.
