Larry L. Wohlford

August 7, 1953 - September 21, 2020

Larry L. Wohlford, 67 yrs old, passed away Monday, September 21, 2020 in Norfolk, Virginia.  Larry was born on August 7, 1953 to Harold and Sybble Lee Wohlford of Huntington, Indiana.  He was a graduate of Huntington North High School.

Master Gunnery Sergeant (ret.) Larry “Wohlfman” Wohlford, honorably served his nation for over 30 yrs in the United States Marine Corps retiring as a highly decorated Marine. Of note, his last assignment was at the Pentagon where he survived the terrorist attack on September 11, 2001. Upon retiring from active duty, he continued to serve in the Civil Service for the Department of the Navy for almost 20 yrs.

Larry lived in Norfolk for many years where he shared a home with Theresa Cortez. He was known for his charming smile and sense of humor.  His faith in God, dedication to the country, and pride in serving in the Marine Corps was without question. He consistently reminded his sons of how fortunate they were to live in such a great country as the United States and to thank God for their blessings.


Larry is survived by his two adult sons, Lee and Walter Wohlford.  His sons proudly served their country as did their father in the Marine Corps and Air Force, respectively. Additionally, Larry loved his many grandchildren to include Dante, Aydan, Dillon, DiMarco, and many other nieces and nephews. His surviving siblings include Dennis, Michael, Debra, and Brenda Kay, who reside in Huntington, Indiana.
