SFC Larry Gorley, United States Army, Retired

SFC Larry Gorley, United States Army, Retired

Larry Gorley was born November 15, 1947 in Houston, Texas and passed away on August 23, 2010 at Plano, Texas, at the age of 62.

Larry proudly served his country in the United States Army and retired having achieved the rank of Sergeant First Class.

Funeral Services were held on August 30 at the Harper-Talasek Funeral Home Chapel in Killeen, Texas.

Interment services followed at the Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery.

Awaiting the arrival of the hearse carrying the flag draped casket were the Patriot Guard Riders.  The Riders formed a line of American flags around the committal shelter as the Army Honor Guard rendered full military honors.

A seven rifle detail fired three volleys of fire, representing Honor, Duty and Country.  The Army bugler played taps, followed by the traditional folding of the United States flag that had covered the casket.  The flag was then presented to Larry’s dear wife on behalf of a grateful country and the United States Army.

SFC Larry Gorley was then laid to rest on the gentle sloping plain of the cemetery as the flag flew at half staff on the hill above.

Left to cherish his memory are his wife and many dear family and friends.
