Larry Mallon, 87, of Atlantic, Iowa, passed away Monday, May 5, 2014, at Cass County Memorial Hospital in Atlantic.

Lawrence Mallon was born on October 30, 1926, in Omaha, Nebraska, the son of Lawrence Rufus and Georgia Grace (Pardee) Mallon. Larry enlisted in the United States Navy, serving his country during WWII, and was honorably discharged in October of 1947.

Larry was a trumpet player in a local dance band, The Melodies, for many years. He continued his joy of playing the trumpet into his 80’s. In his spare time he tinkered with radio control airplanes and electronics in his garage. Larry enjoyed spending time with his family, and wasn’t shy about joining in on the fun!
