Larry Mendenhall Obituary

Let not your heart be trouble: Ye believe in God, believe also in me. John 14:1

Mr. Larry Mendenhall, was born December 26, 1957, in Prosperity, S.C. He was the son of the late James E. and Estelle P. Mendenhall. Larry affectionately called "Lap", on May 6th, 2024, entered into rest. 

He was a loving, caring person with an affectionate spirit. The world has lost a great son, brother, father and grandfather. Larry "Lap" was considered a "Jack of all Trades". Always willing to assist when called upon, no job was ever too big to tackle. He had a zest for life and loved his family and friends. 

Mr. Mendenhall was well known in the surrounding Newberry County area for his expertise skill in electrical work that he learned from his late father. He enjoyed watching Dallas Cowboys playing, but we weren't sure if he was a fan or enjoyed sitting with Mr. Counts talking trash.

Though physically, no longer with us, his loving and kind spirit will forever live in our hearts and lives of those who loved and knew him. Larry "Lap" Mendenhall was employed by American Fiber & Finishing for 20 years, until his health started to decline. 

Mr. Mendenhall was predeceased by his brother, Charles Mendenhall.

Those left to cherish precious memories of Larry "Lap" Mendenhall is his daughter, Latoya Nicole Lindler, two grandchildren, Savion and Samaria Lindler of Prosperity, S.C., his three brothers, George R. Rikard (Barbara) of Newberry S.C, Willie J. Mendenhall (Earline) of Prosperity S.C. John A. Mendenhall of Newberry S.C., his four sisters, Shirley J. Sligh, of Newberry S.C. , Betty A. Mendenhall Norman of Charlotte N.C., Kathy Mendenhall of Prosperity S.C., Janice Mendenhall of Prosperity, S.C., his aunt, Henretta Gregg of Greenville, sister-in-law, Elaine Mendenhall of Prosperity, S.C., devoted niece, Shawn Mendenhall of Prosperity, S.C. and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, including devoted friends, Furman Counts, Leon Kibler and Tyrone Lindler, all of Prosperity, S.C, and all of whom grieve his departure, but rejoice that he is now resting with the Lord.

A Celebration of Life Service will be conducted on Friday, May 10, 2024 at 11:00 am at Mt. Moriah AME Church in Prosperity.  Burial will follow in the church cemetery.  Public viewing will be on Thursday, May 9, 2024 from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm at the Fred B. Pratt Memorial Chapel.
