Lawrence Harwell Moose, age 77, passed away Sunday, July 14th in Birmingham, Alabama. Larry was born and raised in Mobile and was a graduate of Murphy High School. He served in the U.S. Army and was stationed in Germany, where he met Rosemarie, his wife of 55 years. After duty as a radio operator in the Army, Larry returned home and started work in the telecommunications industry. Beginning in manholes and ending in management, Larry spent his entire career at Bell South retiring early after more than 30 years. A devoted father and doting "Opa," Larry will be remembered as a person with a wide array of talents and skills who could do anything he set his mind to. He was always intellectually curious, a voracious reader, and an expert at solving crossword puzzles. He loved new technology and loved designing and building things, including his first color television, complicated school science projects, and beautiful, elaborate stained glass windows. The oldest of 6 children, Mr. Moose was preceded in death by his parents Harwell "Bitsy" and Mary Alice "Bernice" Moose. He is survived by his wife Rosemarie, children Lawrence H. Moose, Jr. (Maureen), Brandon W. Moose, and Apryl H. Johnson (Matthew), and 5 grandchildren Chloe Fugate, Foster Elizabeth Johnson, Benjamin Moose, Caileigh Moose, and Brian Moose.
