Obituary for Larry Albert Titus

Larry Albert Titus was born in Stowe, Vermont on February 21, 1937 to Allen and Elvina Young Titus. He attended Stowe Elementary School and graduated from Stowe High School (where he met his first wife, Fernande Bouchard, in seventh grade) in 1955. Immediately after graduation, he joined the U.S. Navy and went through boot camp at the U.S. Naval Training Center in Bainbridge, Maryland.
Over the course of his 21-year military career, Larry was stationed in Little Creek and Norfolk, VA; Quonset Point, RI; Seattle and Bremerton, WA; Pensacola, FL; Taipei, Taiwan; Laurel, MD; Rota, Spain; Gaeta, Italy; and Homestead, FL. After starting in the Navy as a Damage Controlman, he changed specialties and became a Communications Technician attached to the National Security Agency, where he spent the last 12 years of his career,
He retired as a Chief Petty Officer at the age of 38 in 1975. Becoming a CPO was his main goal because he felt strongly that they were the people who actually ran the Navy. If one of his subordinates made the mistake of addressing him as “sir,” he would immediately respond: “Don’t call me sir. I work for a living”!
Upon retirement from the Navy, Larry moved to Pensacola, FL and attended the University of West Florida on the GI Bill, where he earned a degree in education. He taught at Brentwood Elementary and transferred to Wedgewood Middle School because the Escambia County School District said they needed a military man in middle school. He was loved by the students as well as the staff. He retired after 17 years.
Larry attended St. Mary’s Catholic Church where he was introduced to the Joyful Noise Singers which he immediately joined. He was asked if he would try out for the play South Pacific and was cast in the part of Luther Billis. He was bit. He went on to act in over 125 plays with Saint Mary’s Productions, Pensacola State College, and the Pensacola Little Theatre. Before COVID he was still working at PLT building sets.
Larry was proceeded in death by his parents, grandparents, sister Grace, and his first wife Fern. He is survived his current wife JoAnn. He is also survived by son Greg (Laura), daughter Sheila Pilling (Mark), stepdaughters Shannon Songe, Gina Green (Heather), and Libby Boothe (Cary), and many grandchildren and great grandchildren
