Lawrence A. Lagacy, age 90, formerly of the town of Greenbush, passed away Monday, Feb. 24, 2014, surrounded by his wife and loving family at the Plymouth Care Center where he and his wife have resided for the last two years.

Lawrence “Larry” was born May 13, 1923, in Momence, Ill. He was the loving son of the late Louis and Lillie Lagacy.

On Sept. 3, 1955, he married the love of his life, Cecelia O’Malley of Greenbush, Wis. They were married at St. Cloud Catholic Church, St. Cloud, Wis. After they were married, they made their home on the family farm in Illinois for 22 years.

After the sale of the farm, they moved to Greenbush in 1977 to help Cecelia’s parents, Edward and Hilda O’Malley, with their farm. Lawrence took great pride at being and knowing all that there was to know about farming and the crops that he and his family worked so hard at producing each year.

He was a member of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Plymouth.

Lawrence “Larry” is survived by his loving wife of 58 years, Cecelia; his two children, June (Richard) Miller of Plymouth, and his son, William (Elizabeth) Lagacy of the town of Greenbush; two grandchildren, Ann (Mat) Bunke and their children, Jack, Katelyn, Cole and Emmalee, and Jason (Sarah) Voss and their children, Alexander and Layla. He is further survived by his loving sister, Josephine Du Bois of Urbana, Ill.; his nephew, Robert Lagacy, who was so very dear to him; and many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

Preceding him in death were his parents; his mother- and father-in-law; his sisters and brothers, Rose, Phillip, Isola (Louis) Boudreau, Maria (Paul) Longtin, George (Angela) Lagacy, Henry (Edna) Lagacy, Marguerite (Francis) Longtin and Cecilia (Robert) Yost; a brother-inlaw, Joseph Du Bois; a sister-in-law, Ruth O’Malley; and his great-grandchildren, Jasmine and Joslin Voss and Owen Bunke.
