Larry Laray Adair, age 67, resident of Savannah, Tennessee and husband of Corrine Adair, departed this life Tuesday morning, June 21, 2022 at Hardin Medical Center in Savannah.
Larry was born May 3, 1955 in Memphis, Tennessee, the son of Helen White Adair and the late Aubrey Ray Adair. He served his country in the United States Navy during the Vietnam War period and was married August 5, 1974 to Corrine Washington Adair. They had two daughters (15 months apart!) Their life was centered around church. Between the two of them, they held various positions at the Millington United Pentecostal Church. Larry felt the call to the ministry at the age of 18. He preached his first sermon when he was 30 years old. From that point they assisted 3 different churches and pastored at 2.
Larry was a cabinet builder by trade. He was a minister by calling. He was a true gentleman and loved fiercely. He enjoyed making everyone laugh! His life centered around God, family and church in that order. He will be missed beyond words.
Mr. Adair is survived by his wife of almost 48 years, Corrine Adair; two daughters, Dianna White (Jarrod) and Rhonda Adair; his mother, Helen Adair; his brother, David L. Adair (Linda); five grandchildren, Caitlynn (Kevin), Britton, Brady, Piercynn and Brody; and two great-granddaughters, Alana and Zoë.
