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: Duane Root (wife, Rita) and several nieces and nephews 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.
