LtCol (USAF Retired) Larry Falk
August 8, 1951- May 11, 2018


Waverly Hall, Georgia- Larry Falk departed this life on May 11, 2018. All family and friends are invited to attend a Memorial Service in his honor on Saturday, June 30, 2018, 6 p.m. at his farm. 
He is preceded in death by his Father, DeWitt L. Fulk: his mother, Georgia E. Smith Fulk; and his brother, Stephen Dana Fulk. Survivors include his wife, KC Falk; his daughter, Chelsea Falk; his sister, Susan L. Payton (William R. Payton); nephews, Chance Garner (Donna Garner), Christopher Garner (Lindsay Garner), Doug Payton (Tammy Payton); and niece, Brook Payton.
Larry was deeply committed to God and his wife, KC and daughter, Chelsea. Through their encouragement, Larry recently finished reading the Bible of which he was very proud. He often shared what he read in the Bible with family, friends, and coworkers. He truly believed in Jesus Christ as his Savior, which gives his loved ones the peace they need to keep and cherish his memory knowing they will see him again in the Kingdom of God.
Larry was a caring husband, father, brother, and friend and will be remembered for his loving spirit, sense of humor and favorite college football team Auburn. He had an extensive career in the Health Care field enjoying his employment as a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist, spanning over 30 years at Columbus Medical Center. He also served in the US Air Force Reserves for over 20 years, retiring as Lieutenant Colonel in 2009.
One visit to Larry's home reveals so much about his caring nature as his farm was a place of refuge for countless neglected, abused, and unwanted animals. Once they arrived at Heaven's Gait Farm, their troubles were over. Although he often said to KC "No more animals" he always allowed one more sad story onto his farm.
Donations in Larry's memory may be made to the following local charities: Cookies Canine Animal Rescue, Pawmotion, East Alabama Humane Society, Begin Again Farm, Animal SOS, and Angel Medical Fund.

It comes as no surprise to see that Larry rose to prominence serving his country. All memories of him are as a leader and a gentleman.

I'm heart broken I wouldn't see you at our reunion to laugh again about cutting up in Mrs. McGraw's English class with Ralph Justice and times on the gridiron. I'm sorry proud to read of your many successes and animal compassion in your life. I hope to see you again beyond here. You were special.

This was read as part of my devotions this morning. The world has lost a special person. As soon as I saw the class photo of Larry in his ROTC uniform the memory of the respect for him came to me. What a shining example, of all the ways he served, his love and proudest times were of his relationship to God and family and reading the bible. God bless Larry's loved ones and thank you for encouraging his walk of faith as he ran his race. We do have a day of rejoicing to look forward to.
