Larry Edward Holmes, 69 of Tampa, FL passed away March 28, 2018. He was born August 19, 1948 in Plainfield, NJ and had been a resident of Florida since 1985, when he and his wife, Karen N. Holmes transferred from Washington, DC with their respective companies. Larry was a tour bus driver "extraordinaire" who had the rare privilege of performing a job that he absolutely loved; driving coast-to-coast for people who enjoyed touring the United States and Canada. As a result, Larry had plenty of stories to tell that would keep you laughing for hours. By the end of his driving career, Larry had traveled well over a million miles. He also enjoyed cooking and had he chosen to pursue culinary arts, would have been an excellent chef. Although he was not affiliated with a specific church at the time of his death, Larry did have a relationship with the Lord, was a Christian, and willingly acknowledged and accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior.
Larry is survived by his loving wife, Karen N. Holmes; her daughters, Tena and Laurie Nock-Hope, his son, Darell D. Holmes; grandson, Jeremiah Olade; brother, Alan D. Holmes; sister, Deborah Robinson, both of North Carolina, their families, and extended family in New Jersey.
