Larry Trowbridge Obituary

Larry Trowbridge, lifelong resident of Mishawaka, Indiana, entered into the arms of Jesus on Saturday, February 3, 2024.

Larry was born on March 6,1942 in Mishawaka to parents, Clement and Margaret Trowbridge. He had a brother, Richard Trowbridge, and two sisters, Phyllis (Trowbridge) Kobb and Lillian (Trowbridge) Van Durmen Stanek. All have preceded him in death.

Larry graduated from Mishawaka High School in 1960 and soon after enlisted in the United States Navy, where he proudly served his country from 1960–1964. He completed the prescribed course of study at the U.S. Navy School, Radarman Class “A” at Great Lakes. He served aboard the destroyers, the USS Brown and the USS Brinkley Bass.

Larry had two children. His daughter, Kimberly Trowbridge, tragically passed away at the age of seven from a childhood disease. His son, David Trowbridge, who with his wife Wynne, children Blake, and Lauryn Trowbridge, all survive him.

In 1990, Larry married Kaye Hall. They were married until the time of his passing.

Larry enjoyed sports of all types. His favorite sports teams were Notre Dame and the Chicago Bears. It was a common sight to see Larry watching his favorite sports channel on television. Larry was a fan of Buddy Holly; one of his favorite songs was True Love Ways. Coincidentally, Larry passed away on the anniversary of “the Day the Music Died,” strengthening his connection to one of his favorite entertainers. He also enjoyed listening to old time Rock ‘N Roll and 50’s and 60’s country music artists. He was fortunate to see the King of Rock ‘N Roll, Elvis Presley, at Notre Dame! He told fabulous stories, often keeping his grandchildren and those around him enthralled about the adventures of the past.

He was a member of the American Legion in Osceola, Indiana, and a proud USN Veteran. Larry was a born-again Christian and was baptized. He believed in Jesus Christ as his personal Savior. We are confident that we will be reunited again!
