William "Bill" Larger
LARGER, William E. “Bill” age 67 passed away Tuesday night, August 7, 2018 at the Maria-Joseph Nursing & Rehabilitation Center. He graduated from Chaminade High School in 1969. He received a BA in Philosophy in 1973 from St. Joseph College in Rensselaer, IN and had been in formation to become a priest in the Precious Blood Order. Bill was diagnosed with an illness shortly after graduation from college. He was given much to suffer throughout his lifetime, but he accepted it all with grace, humility and mostly a smile. He was a member of Corpus Christi Church and then Our Lady of the Rosary where he sang in the choir and was an usher. He was an active member for 33 years in Council 3754 Marian Manor, Knights of Columbus and was just named “Knight of the Month” in April. Bill was an avid sports fan, especially the Cincinnati Reds, enjoyed bowling, pitching horseshoes, euchre, and traveling throughout the country visiting family and friends with his loving parents. He never forgot anyone he met and relished their friendship.
He was preceded in death by his parents Al and Marcella Larger and sister, Lynn Wasserman.
He is survived by his siblings, John (Nancy) Larger, Patty (Don) Hoendorf, Connie (Dean) Steinke, Walt Larger and brother-in-law Brian Wasserman; numerous nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
