Larry G. Joslin, age 67 of rural Darlington, passed away Monday, June 11, 2018 at his home. He was born Nov. 2, 1950 in Corinth, Miss., the son of Ezra and Evelyn (Thomas) Joslin. Larry grew up in Mississippi until moving to Chicago in the late 70’s. In 1996, he moved to Warren, Ill., where he resided for 10 years before moving to rural Darlington to live with his daughter and son-in-law.
Larry is survived by his children: Amanda (Marc) Pederson, Randy Joslin, Shawn (Tabitha) Joslin, and Shane (Taryn) Joslin all of Darlington; his grandchildren: Ethan (Nicole) Pederson, Evan, and Branden Pederson, Jackson Joslin, Carter and Easton Joslin, and Braxton Joslin; one brother: Charles “Skeet” (Brenda) Joslin of Corinth; and one sister: Carolyn Fair of Corinth. He was preceded in death by his parents; six brothers: James, Jimmy, Jerry, Billy, Danny, and Tommy Joslin; and one sister: Doris Joslin.
Larry was a master carpenter, plumber and electrician and his family was always amazed by what he knew. He cherished his family and the memories they created together more than anything else in the world. Together they enjoyed fishing, shooting pool, and working on cars. He will be sadly missed and fondly remembered by his family and friends.
A private family service will be held at a later date. The Erickson Funeral Home in Darlington is serving the family. Online condolences may be expressed to the family at www.ericksonfuneralhome.com.
