4 Condolences for Lawrence “Larry” E. Tait

  • Always in our hearts, our thoughts and our prayers.

  • My thoughts and prayers will always be with you Larry. My Pyrex coffee pot is filled with water and coffee and ready to be perked in the morning. an I will be toasting my first cup of coffee to you.

  • Larry was a dedicated usher at Saint Peters Catholic Church in New Castle. Prior to that he was a member of the Lady of Fatima Parish. I know that he came to St. Peters when Father John Klevence became pastor at St. Peters. The three of us even went out to dinner down at the beach after Father Klevence was transferred to St. Anns in Bethany Beach. Larry, not to be confused with Larry Tate, the character from the show Bewitched, was a good guy, who was helpful and did good things for others. He is already sorely missed. PS: thanks for your efforts in helping us rid the parish of you know who,.

  • I’ve known Larry for over 30 years. He was a wonderful man with a big and caring heart. He was like a brother to me and will be missed in so many ways.
