Larry William Mallory, born in Macon, Georgia September 2 1941, passed Sunday, July 11th 2021 in Savannah.
Son of Manning Lanier and Irene Rogers Mallory, he lived in Savannah since 1963.
Survived by his wife Debra Myers King Mallory, his daughter’s Lisa McCluskey and Cindy Robbins from his previous marriage to Sheila Garner Mallory. He was the grandfather of Carson and Sarah McCluskey and Pace and Tru Robbins. He loved them all so very much. He was over the moon proud of his first grandchild, Carson for recently following his heart and dream in joining the Coast Guard. We were all blessed with his words, advice, love, perseverance, and strength.
He is also survived by his brother Craig Lanier Mallory and his wife Ann, who he enjoyed spending time with, working on projects and sharing countless laughs. He was an awesome uncle to Kathleen and Megan Myers and enjoyed the privilege of watching them grow into beautiful, strong adults. He also leaves behind several cousins, nieces and nephews. He loved to sail, loved fixing things, loved Waylon and Willie and his dogs. He lived life by his own rules and treated everyone with fairness and respect. He was a wonderful father and patient listener. He was a true believer of the Christian faith and kept in his heart the biblical stories of his upbringing. He loved his family and his friends and would do anything for them. He worked hard every day providing for his family. He was a Master Mechanic. He did not like being retired, so he would find projects to work on up until the end. He loved cars, and knew everything about every make and model. He spent many summers working on hot rods in Waco, Texas. He could find humor in anything and if you were lucky and funny enough, you could witness him laughing so hard that tears would start flowing.
Dad & Deb were married for 20 years but together longer. They loved each other to the end.
The family ask that in lieu of flowers that you send donations to American Heart Association, Cancer Society, Savannah Widows’ Society, or the organization of your choosing.
There will be a memorial and celebration of his life later in the Fall.

I am sorry to hear of Larry's passing. I knew him well as he worked on my British cars for years. Even going as far back as the 70's when he had a shop on White Bluff Rd named Road Savannah. And then again when he had a shop near Thunderbolt. I still have those 2 cars that he worked on. Again please accept my condolences.
