Larry Ray Barta

May 14, 1948 - January 9, 2022

Larry Barta passed away peacefully after a struggle with cancer on January 9th, 2022 in his Virginia Beach home surrounded by his loving family.

Larry is survived by his wife of 52 years, Ellen (Fulton) and children Scott Barta (Krista), Beth Barta (Peter), Lynell Helms (Michael) and Lorin Kain (Jeremy).  He is also survived by his grandchildren; Tyler, Hanna, Kelsea, Brodyn, Ryan and Emily, as well as mother Lorene Barta, brother Gary Barta, sister Cathy (Jerry) Soukup and several nieces and nephews.  Larry was preceded in death by his father Kenneth Barta and infant son Ty Barta.

He put people at ease with his calming presence and humor; always quick to put a smile on the face of anyone he encountered.
