Larry Wayne “Poppy” Ezell went home to his Lord and Savior on Friday, June 25, 2021, at the age of 70. He was a resident of Denham Springs, LA. He was born on August 8, 1950, in Baton Rouge and graduated from Woodlawn High School; Class of 1969.
Larry attended Louisiana State University before enlisting in the U. S. Army. After his discharge, he began working in multiple trade fields such as: a painter with National Paint Company where he moved up to a supervisor’s position, maintenance supervisor at St. James Episcopal in downtown Baton Rouge, and a supervisor with a scaffolding company. Larry enjoyed working with his hands, being outdoors, and helping others. He would give one everything he owned if one needed it. He loved growing fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, bell peppers, and hot peppers.
Larry was preceded in death by his parents, W. T. (Dub) and Nola Ezell; and daughter, Lindsey Ezell. He is survived by his daughter, Jinci Strahan; son, John Knifely; sister, Patty Dumiller (Mike); brother, Glen Ezell (Linda); the joys of his life, three grandchildren Emzly, Aniley, and Merritt Strahan; nieces and nephews, Michelle Carlton (Ben), Michael Dumiller, Jr., Joshua Ezell, and Megan Willmann (Korey).
He was very thankful for his friend, Margit Nash, for always listening, sharing, and supporting him.
