Larry Steele Obituary

Larry Eugene Steele was born in Cincinnati, Ohio on July 14, 1936 to the late Rosefelt Steele and Anna G. Harper (Farley).

He was lovingly known as “Gene” by his family and friends. He graduated from High School and joined the United States Navy. Gene served his duty and returned to Cincinnati. He was united in holy matrimony to Nellie C. Steele (Clark) in 1958. They were partners in life and love and were blessed with four children and eight grandchildren.

Larry’s caring spirit led him to assist his fellow veterans to live the best life possible. He was employed at the Veterans Administration Hospital, as a Nephrology Technician, for more than 35 years; retiring in 1994.

Larry professed his faith in Christ at an early age and he joined the Southern Baptist Church Family in 1984 and was a member of the Southern Baptist Trustee Board for many years.

Skip (known by his sons) favorite pastime was sharing his memories with those he loved by capturing the beauty, laughter and fellowships in photo form. He began taking photos in his teens and never stopped. Larry’s family is fortunate to have had him for 87 years.

On February 17, 2024, while sleeping, Larry was called home.

He leaves to cherish his memories: four children, Larry Christopher Steele, Julian Terrance Steele (Joyce), Victor Tobiaus Steele (Iris) and Leslie Simone Tennyson (Malcolm); and a very special and long-time friend of the family for more than 50 years, Catherine Henderson. He will be missed by his grandchildren, 13 great-grandchildren, one great-great-grandchild, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and very good friends.
