Mr. Larry Andrew King, 82, of Dickerson, MD passed away peacefully at his home on Wednesday, November 17, 2021. Larry was born to Andrew W. and Dorothy E. King in Laytonsville, MD on May 18, 1939. Left to cherish his memory is his wife of sixty five years, Dorothy Anne King, two daughters, Linda A. Dean and her husband Bill of Virginia Beach, VA and Laurie A.

Dean of Chicago, IL and one great grand-daughter Lucy Lewis. Larry is also survived by two sisters Elva Figuracion and Pat Spies of Colonial Beach, VA and one brother, Thomas King and his wife Betty of Adamstown, MD.   


Larry worked proudly as a dairy farmer in Dickerson, MD for sixty one years, working fifty five of those years for his dear friends Harry and Fannie Ensor of Maryland Hopewell Farms near Sugarloaf Mountain. Larry took great pride in caring for the herd and managing the dairy operations of the farm, demonstrating a level of compassion, commitment and humility that serves as an example to his community and all who knew him.   


Gracious and generous to everyone, Larry established long lasting and impactful relationships in his community and with his extended family. His values, influence and compassion endures with all who grew up in his presence. While we mourn our loss, we are forever grateful for the impact of his life and the many “days to remember” he gave us.

To the King family. Sorry for your loss. Mr. King was a kind person. Growing up in Dickerson there was never a time when he passed the house on the tractor that he didn’t wave. Always a gentleman with a big heart. He will be missed.
