Lawrence Schirle

March 2, 1919 — Oct. 5, 2012

Larry Schirle entered into eternal life on Oct. 5, 2012. A native of San Jose, he was born on March 2, 1919, to John and Mary Schirle, the third of eight children. He graduated from Bellarmine in 1938, was a decorated veteran of World War II and served in France. During the war he met the love of his life, Reba, to whom he was married for 64 years until her death in 2010.

Larry was a devoted father, grandfather and great-grandfather. His family was his life and his passion. He took a major role in the lives of his grandchildren.  He retired from Ford Aerospace in 1983; he was instrumental in the development of the Hubbel Space Telescope. He was blessed with many years of retirement with Reba, RVing, fishing and traveling the U.S. He especially enjoyed his last 13 years in Placerville tending his acre and appreciating the local wines. He was a man of great faith and devotion and will be deeply missed by his family.

Larry is survived by his children, Ken (Claranne), Tom, Carol Dent (Mike), Janna Enfantino, Joan Roebuck (Tony) and Jill Barker (Matt); 15 grandchildren; and nine great-grandchildren. He is also survived by a sister, Mary Rose Crowley (Bill); and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his son, Mark; and six siblings.

A mass of Christian burial will be celebrated on Monday, Oct. 22, at 11 a.m., at St. Patrick Church, 3109 Sacramento Street in Placerville. Interment will be on Tuesday, Oct. 23, at 11 a.m., at the Sacramento Valley National Cemetery in Dixon. In lieu of flowers donations may be made in Larry’s honor to Disabled American Veterans, P.O. Box 14301, Cincinnati, OH, 45250-0301 (web address: dav.org/donate). Friends may sign an electronic guestbook and leave condolences at chapelofthepinesfunerals.com.
