Lawrence Findley Killick

May 31, 1922 - January 31, 2013

Rockledge, Florida

Lawrence Findley Killick was born in Burlington, VT on May 31, 1922 and departed this earth on January 31, 2013 at the age of 90.

Larry attended the University of Vermont and Dartmouth, playing basketball for both schools. He was in the UVM Basketball Hall of Fame and the New England Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame, and was one of Sports Illustrated’s “50 Greatest Sports Figures of the Century” from the state of Vermont. After playing college ball, he played professional basketball for the Baltimore Bullets.

A patriotic American, he was a captain in the Marine Corps, serving in the Pacific Theater during WWII, as well as the Korean War.

Larry married Rhoda Hershoff in 1960 and they moved their family from New York City to Brevard County in 1962. He worked with Carroll Distributing and soon became an active member of the business community, serving on several boards of directors.

One of his personal successes was having his memoirs published. His book, "Boots, Hoops and Troops", recounted his time in the Marines, basketball, and the war.

Larry Killick was a loving husband, father and grandfather. He is survived by his wife of 52 years, Rhoda, his daughter, Debbie, his sons Alan (Holly), Tom (Kellie) and Barrett (Heather) and six grandchildren (Leighton, Ariel, Aiden, Joelle, Brody and Kyson).

He will be missed by many. We love you Larry. Semper Fi!
