Obituary for Larry C. Blundy
Larry C. Blundy, age 68, of Portland, passed away surrounded by his family on Sunday, September 20, 2020. He was born on January 21, 1952, the son of Roman and Rita (Smith) Blundy. He was a faithful member of St. Patrick Catholic Church and the Knights of Columbus #2168. Larry grew up on a farm north of Portland where he cultivated his love for woodworking and the outdoors, specifically, hunting and fishing – some would say he was considered the modern-day Daniel Boone as a child. Larry and his wife purchased the Densmore Farm where they enjoyed time spent there, they also loved to spend time at their cottage in Grayling. Larry was proud of his 1967 Mercury Cougar. Larry was the Director of Emergency Services and a Paramedic for the City of Portland for many years. He served on the Portland Fire Department since the age of 17 and was the Fire Chief. Larry also was a city housing Inspector, worked at Pure Gas Station in the mechanic department, then he moved on to Russ’ Sunoco. Larry owned and operated West Side Deli in Lansing and ABC Home Inspection.
