Lawrence James Gervais

July 16, 1941 – December 29, 2020
Age: 79
Residence: Harrison, AR
Formerly of: Milwaukee, WI

Lawrence James Gervais, age 79, of Harrison, Arkansas, passed away December 29, 2020. He entered this life July 16, 1941, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the son of Edward and Margaret (Aaron) Gervais. Preceding him in death are his parents; loving wife, June Marie (Garrison) Gervais; and two brothers: Frank and Jim Gervais.

Larry was eager to serve our country with the Army Airborne and joined at the age of 14. The Army did not find out his age until he had already parachuted into hostile territory and then sent him home. His favorite pastimes were telling jokes (always), playing cards with his best friend, Robert “Ty” Dean, watching the geese on his pond, going to activities with his church, Ozarks Crossroads, and giving his caregiver, Cora Edwards, a very special lady, a hard time (just kidding). Prior to his strokes, Larry was enthusiastically involved as a volunteer at NARMC (North Arkansas Regional Medical Center) hospital in Harrison.

Larry wished no fuss, hence there is no service currently planned. He has donated his body for research purposes to MedCure through the help of Cremations of the Ozarks. To leave an online condolence, please visit
