Larry Thomas Deal

February 1, 1947 ~ July 23, 2022 (age 75)



 Mr. Larry T. Deal, age 75 passed away Saturday, July 23, 2022 at Piedmont Newnan Hospital in the care of Hospice after a long illness. He was the son of Emit C. and Lucile Roberts Deal of Statesboro. The Bulloch County native was a 1965 graduate of Statesboro High School where he was a member of the varsity football team. He attended Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College for 1 year before transferring to the University of Georgia where he majored in business. Larry left UGA one semester before graduation to join the United States Air Force. He served for 4 years while stationed at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida. After the Air Force, Larry worked for Lambert Sand and Gravel in McDonough, GA. Then, the company moved to Shorter, Alabama where Larry worked until they were bought out by Martin Marietta. He later went to work for Wire Grass Construction Company in Montgomery, AL. He retired in 2018. Larry was loved by his coworkers and customers due to his impeccable work ethic and sense of humor.

In 1988, Larry met the love of his life, Bonnie Gayle Blackstock. They were married on September 25, 1999. At that time, he gained two daughters, Ashley and Jody. He adored his daughters and was the greatest “pop” there could ever be to his grandchildren, Savannah and Sawyer.  While living in Statesboro, Larry was a member of the Portal Hunting Club. He also enjoyed horseback riding (in his younger days), golf and fishing-especially teaching his wife how to fish. He is preceded in death by his parents, Emit and Lucile Deal; brother, Bobby E. Deal; nephew Patrick Peaster.
