Zionsville

Larry John Essley, 79, of Zionsville, passed away on August 27, 2022.  He was born in Auburn, Indiana to the late John and Vera Essley on December 26, 1942.  Larry was a graduate of Auburn High School and went to work for Kraft in Kendallville for 6 years, during which time he was drafted into the Army. Upon his return from military service, he became a 30-year dedicated employee at the General Electric Wire Mill in Fort Wayne.  After his retirement, he spent 13 years working at Noble Hawk Golf course mowing greens and picking up loose golf balls on the course, just to be around the game he loved.

Larry is survived by his wife of 54 years, Marilyn Rose Essley; son, Eric J. (Amy Pomeranz) Essley; and grandsons, Maxwell and Phineas Essley.

During his years in Kendallville, when he wasn’t working, he could be found on the golf course, driving his corvette with the t-tops off, or spending time watching IU basketball.

After moving to Zionsville in 2012 to be closer to family, Larry would be seen at every practice and game of his grandsons.  He loved to go on walks and spend time taking care of his yard.
