Checkered Flag for Larry Bock

Filed under: General,Racing — LLoring @ 2:05 pm

Past SBR Member Larry Bock passed away on Monday. Here is his obituary as printed in the South Bend Tribune.  He was a great friend and a fine race driver. He, Larry Drover,  and Larry Dent were the main men in Laurel Racing. Look out heaven, here comes another Larry at full throttle!

Larry Dean Bock Oct. 5, 1934 – Oct. 13, 2014 MISHAWAKA – Larry died after a love filled, Joyous 80th Birthday week-end with his family. He was an active beloved member of the “Friends of Bill W.” His attitude was always “how can I help you.” Larry was a car guy, he knew more about cars than almost anyone else. He raced cars professionally in the 60′s and 70′s, built cars, restored cars, and bought and sold lots of cars. He was born in St. Joseph County, Indiana, to George and Audrie June Bock Jr. He lived in Mishawakea, IN, until he moved to Naples in the 70′s. He loved to be warm. He is survived by his loving wife Susan, his son, Mark (Victoria) of Naples, and daughter, Terri (Patrick) Siple of Breman, IN, four grandchildren and two great-grandchildren, who he dearly loved. He was preceded in death by a brother, Dennis Bock. His smile and love of making people laugh will be greatly missed and always remembered. Donations in his memory may be made to the Scholarship Fund – The Glenview, 100 Glenview Place, Naples, FL 34108. The family will receive friends, Wednesday, Oct 15, (TODAY) from 10 to 11am at Fuller Funeral Home, 1625 Pine Ridge Road, where a celebration of Larry’s life will be held at 11:00 am.
