Larry Piatt Obituary

Larry C. Piatt, age 81, of Portsmouth, Ohio passed away on January 17, 2024, at Portsmouth Health and Rehab, surrounded by his loving family.

Larry was born September 27, 1942 to Henry Clinton Piatt and Mary Francis Suter, his grandmother Fannie Piatt who assisted in his upbringing, who all precede him in death. He was also predeceased by his sister Kay Kelly, a son Andy Piatt, and a daughter-in-law Dreama Piatt.

Larry was a lifelong Portsmouth resident and graduated from Portsmouth High School with the Class of 1960. He was active in his community, coached recreational baseball and football for West Portsmouth, served on Portsmouth Notre Dame School Board and Athletic Association and rarely missed a Sunday or Tuesday calling out numbers at Notre Dame Bingo. Larry was very proud to have been inducted into the Greater Southern Ohio Tri-State Sports Hall of Fame for softball. Larry always took an active interest in his children’s and grandchildren’s lives. He loved to take them on drives to obscure places of interest, and always had a good story to tell.

Larry was loved and will be greatly missed by his children, son C.J. (Kristin) Piatt, daughters Jodi Piatt, and Laura (Bill) Piatt Holland, the mother of his children Sally Piatt, grandchildren, Bryant (Whitney) McQuithy, Drew (Keri) Piatt, Mandi (Bobby) Barnett, Hayden (Bailey) D’Amico, Kayleigh (Seth) Holland, and Mack Dyer. Larry was blessed with 5 great grandchildren, Logan, Sloan, Isaiah, T.J. and Evelyn.
