Larry P. Cameron, born in Lexington, KY on November 7, 1937, passed away peacefully with the love and support of his family on July 13, 2019.

He was a graduate of Morehead State University in Morehead, KY and received his Master’s degree from Antioch College in Yellow Springs, OH, in 1966

Larry started his teaching career in Amelia, OH and after 5 years, moved his family to Florida. He then retired after many years as a teacher and coach in the Pinellas County School System, teaching high school chemistry and coaching football and golf. He taught and coached football at Dixie M. Hollins High School in St. Petersburg, FL followed by teaching and coaching golf at Countryside High School in Clearwater, FL.

Throughout his career, he positively impacted many of his students and remained in touch with a number of them over the years and into his retirement. He was an energetic sports fan and always had opinion about whatever game he was watching – the players, the coaches, and even the referees! He enjoyed watching the Rays and the Bucs, and was a life-long fan of the University of Kentucky basketball

Larry is survived by his wife of over 61 years, Martha A. Cameron. He is also survived by his children, daughter, Jayne A. Cameron, son, Jay P. Cameron and daughter-in-law, Karla Cameron. Larry was especially proud of and dearly loved his grandchildren, Katy and Carson Cameron. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.

For those who wish to remember him, we would welcome donations in his memory to the American Cancer Society. Services were at Sylvan Abbey Funeral Home on July 18, 2019.
