Lawrence “Larry” Clark Root born 10/26/1938 died on 6/8/2021 at
the age of 82 at his home in Victor, NY. Leaves his wife: Joyce
Root. Children: Gregory Root (wife, Judy Gallant-Root), Linda
Root Pouder (husband, Nicholas Pouder) and David Root (wife,
Jess Root). His grandchildren: Cameron Root, Caroline Root,
Olivia Pouder, Maggie Pouder, and Blake Duke. Larry’s brother:

Larry was born in Niagara Falls, NY and grew up in Lockport,
NY. He graduated from Roberts Wesleyan College with a degree
in business. He served in the Air National Guard and earned an
honorable discharge. He retired from Chase Bank as an
administrative manager. Larry was never one for down time and
loved to always stay busy in retirement. He owned his own
company “War Zone Models” selling remote control airplanes.
Larry believed in being self sufficient and followed the motto “if
someone else can do that, then so can I”. Larry and his brother
were taught to sew as kids, a skill that he always kept up with. He
taught himself how to reupholster furniture and even sewed a sail
cover for his daughter and son-in-law’s boat. Up until two years
ago he always kept a thriving vegetable garden and especially
loved his blueberry patch. But his greatest love was in his old cars
and belonging to The Rochester Street Rods Club. Larry owned
many classic cars throughout his life and enjoyed working on
them.
He will be sorely missed by his wife and family.
Friends and family may call Wednesday June 23rd from 4-7 PM at Miller Funeral and Cremation Services of Victor, Inc., 301 W. Main St., Victor, NY 14564. Lawrence’s Memorial Service will be held 11 AM Thursday June 24th in the All Seasons Chapel at White Haven Memorial Park, where interment will follow.
