Larry L. Nuckols, 65, of Warrenton, passed away Friday, December 1, 2017, wrapped in the arms of his two daughters. Mr. Nuckols went to his eternal rest with his Lord after a courageous fight against lung cancer.
He was born September 1, 1952, in Alexandria. Mr. Nuckols grew up as the youngest of four in the Cameron Valley area of Alexandria. He loved to tell a good story. No doubt there were many nights spent in the company of good friends with a bottle of Jim Beam and some good ol’ Lynyrd Skynyrd. His early years included running around with his nephew’s band, driving around in the infamous black hearse and fulfilling his love of music by attending many concerts at the Alexandria Roller Rink.
Mr. Nuckols went on to pursue a career with Safeway, where he was promoted to of produce manager. He prided himself in being accountable to his staff and his customers. He was an avid bowler. One of his greatest memories was bowling with his daughter, Angela. He almost had a perfect game one day, but on the last frame, he left one pin. That pin is tucked away in his house today.
He enjoyed cheering the Washington Redskins, and he was so happy when his grandsons developed a love for his team. In recent years, if you ever saw Mr. Nuckols out and about, most likely he was wearing one of his favorite tie-dyed shirts — a love he shared with his two granddaughters. When you want to remember Mr. Nuckols, visit his favorite ice cream shop, The Carousel, where he would go to share his love of banana splits and milkshakes with his daughter, Monica. His proudest role on this earth was being a grandfather.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Leonard Whitten Nuckols and Lilly Pearl Nuckols, his older brother Lenny, and his wife, Davida Cheryl Nuckols.
Survivors include his sister, Elizabeth Faye Holder; his brother, Robert “Bob” Nuckols; his first wife, Marion E. Anderson; his daughters, Monica Marie Law and husband T.J., Angela Liberty Westbrook and husband Mike, and Sarah Elizabeth Radcliffe and husband Ian, and 10 grandchildren, including Grant Michael Westbrook, Mitchell Dean Westbrook, Eleanor June Westbrook, Griffin Wyatt Law, Reese Peyton Law, and Keirin E. Law.
The family will receive friends for an hour before the service, which will begin at 2 p.m. Saturday, December 9, at Moser Funeral Home in Warrenton. Interment will follow at Bright View Cemetery near Warrenton.
