Lawrence Malone was born on December 11, 1950 in Road Town,
Tortola, to Ms. Beulah I. Hodge. Larry spent his early years with his
grandparents, the late Otto and Lucy Hodge. At age 10, Larry came to St.
Thomas to live with his mother.
Larry spent most of his life and spare time on the basketball court of
Paul M. Pearson Garden. Larry played with numerous basketball teams,.
the most recent being the 40 Plus Basketball League.
In April of 1985 Larry met Delita Coggins, and out of that union, they
were blessed with one daughter, Kimberly Malone. Larry and Delita
were united in marriage on August 1, 1992. Larry was a devoted hus-
band, father, and friend. Although quiet and soft-spoken at times, he was
best known for his sense of humor, stem advice, and love for his fellow-
men. Larry lived an active life. He touched everyone he came in contact
with, including his friends, family and coworkers.
Larry was employed by Stouffer Grand Beach Resort as a security
guard from May, 1986 until his untimely passing. On February 28, Larry
was called to rest by his Heavenly Father. His last words spoken to his
dear wife were "Don't cry, Babes," as she was often called by him. Larry
will be dearly missed; but he will never be forgotten. May he rest in

Larry, a lot of things you have done in the past will always remain with
me, especially your sense of humor. You gave unselfishly. I saw you at
your weakest point but most of all you always found strength to be an
excellent father, husband and friend. You were the source of my inspira-
tion at all times. Your knowledge is one thing I will miss you dearly for.
You will be in our hearts always. It is not the end. We will meet again
someday. You deserve to rest, so rest in peace until we meet again.
Your loving wife Delita and daughter Kim
Larry ... 42 years ago I had the privilege
of having you as my son. I often told fam-
ily and friends that the mold you were made
of had been broken, because of the human-
ity you displayed to your wife, daughter,
and I. You were always there when I
needed you; and would often lend a listen-
ing ear when I called on you. Your sick-
ness and death has taught me how to love
and be patient to my fellowmen. Words
cannot express the love I had for you. You
are gone, but your good sense of humor
would never be forgotten. It's my turn to
say to you now, "Good-bye Babes." Fare-
well, my son.
love, Mom Beaulah
A time for everything Everything that happens in this world
happens at the time God chooses. He sets the time for birth, and the time
for death. He sets the time for sorrow and the time for joy, the time for
mourning and the time for dancing. We are grieved by Larry's death but
let's thank and praise God for the life he has shared with us. Rest in
Carlyle, Thelma and Carla
Larry ... The first time we met you welcomed us into your home and
your heart. You always had a kind word and a joke to tell, no matter what
the situation. Your untimely passing hurt us deeply, and gives us great
comfort to know that you are finally "home." Rest in peace, our friend.
We will miss you!

It seemed as if only yesterday that Larry, Jennylee, Laurielee, and I
were walking to school. I can still hear Miss Cintie fussing with us about
getting our chores done before your mother came home from work. I can
still remember how you loved to tease and joke with the smallest of
children but you still had a heart full of love just the same. Yes, this
--tnnsuant as you often called me, will miss you. Sam, Shan, Norman
and I will miss you. Until we meet again, bye for now, and have a sweet
Farewell, Our Warrior Brother...
Larry "Bird" Malone is a name that no P.M.P. Warrior can ever forget.
He was as graceful on the basketball court as he was in life. Larry "Bird"
exemplified the positive spirit that keep us together as a ball club, best
friends and family. Larry "Bird" never got in trouble, and always had
sound advice for those of us who did. He was always mindful of his
manners, showing respect to all at all times. Larry "Bird" was like the
nucleus of our group; an example of what we all wanted to become,
respectful, well-liked citizens. He was a true Warrior.
Larry "Bird" was the argumentative one, the stubborn one, the one
that insisted on doing everything right. And because of this we, as a very
vulnerable young group of boys, kept out of trouble. He was a good son
and later on a good family man, husband and father. Larry "Bird" was a
We miss Larry "Bird" early. He was the original super-star ballhandler/
basketball player extraordinary. A good ten years before anyone heard of
the Boston Celtic's superstar, our own Larry "Bird" was dazzling all of us
on and off the court.
It feels as though a significant part of our lives has ended, for without
Larry "Bird" life will not be the same for the Warriors and for the many
whose lives he touched in such a short 42 years.
We know that God has taken the mighty Larry "Bird" to be the point
guard on his heavenly team, to inspire in the same manner as he inspired
all of us. Larry "Bird" was a good Warrior.
We say farewell, our Warrior brother. You will never be forgotten by
any of us, for you will always be part of that Warrior spirit that holds us
together in love and respect for each other and for our fellow man.
