Larry Edward McCoy, Jr. passed away unexpectedly on March 10, 2023 in Norwalk, CT. He was 58. He is survived by his mother, Nancy McCoy, his two daughters, Emily McCoy and Lindsay (Wiliam) Brady, their mother Tisha Fox, and special friend Nancy Ritchey.
He was preceded in death by his father, Larry Edward McCoy, Sr., with whom he shared a birthday, and grandparents Harry and Marie Van Tuyle, Edward and Margaret McCoy.
Larry graduated from Schlarman High School, the University of Illinois, and DePaul University with an MBA in finance. Early in his career, he worked for Cirrus, a bank card company, in Naperville and then MasterCard, where he was a vice-president. At the time of Larry’s passing, he was president at Rapid Armored in Brooklyn, NY.
Larry was a natural athlete, playing many sports when he was growing up. As an adult, his passion was for the game of golf. For 13 years, he was featured in and contributed to Golf Digest magazine’s “The Hot List,” an annual golf equipment publication. He was a member of the team who tested and rated the newest equipment on the market. To date, he was the longest-standing, returning member. In a publicity video, he explained the concentration required for repeatedly hitting golf balls eight hours a day for a week. This was the highlight of his year.
We remember this past year as a particularly happy one for Larry, his mother, and two girls. We now know it was a special gift for all of us. Emily and her dog Beamer were frequent visitors to his new apartment to “hang out.” In the tradition of past father-daughter trips to Disney World, Larry, Emily, and Lindsay repeated the experience in December with four days at Disney and a stop at Lindsay’s home in FL to visit with Will and their dog, Millie. Later in December, he showed off his new apartment to his mom, a visit that was a perfect Christmas gift.
He had just learned that he would be a grandfather to a Brady grandson due in September. He was so excited. He loved kids and they loved him. He would have been a wonderful grandpa, teaching the little guy how to swing a golf club and catch a baseball. He was taken away from us too soon.
As he wished, he was cremated, There are no services planned at this time.
