Military Service Tribute, Honors, and Obituary 

Recognizing and Honoring a Fallen Hero, Who Served Within the Mississippi National Guard. “Fallen, Yet Not Forgotten”

In recognition of our proud American tradition of honorable service which our military men and women have given to their country and our State, we honor a Fallen Hero. Our nation, our state, and the National Guard Association of MS (NGAMS) regard the memorializing of its retired military deceased as an honorable and sacred obligation.

Another great Soldier and Fallen Hero has been released from duty, passed from our ranks on February 16, 2024, and has moved on to his heavenly home.  Former Sergeant Larry Tim Lott, age 83, who had served in the MSARNG within the 890th Engineer Battalion, has departed and gone to a better place with our good Lord. 

It takes a special person to serve within the military for their country, giving up their family time, comfort, and safety for their country, ultimately for all Americans to enjoy their freedoms, safety, and way of life. We now applaud you for your service to our country.  A special message from General Douglas McArthur remains applicable today for our servicemen that have passed: “Old Soldiers never die; they just fade away”.

Rest in Peace Soldier.  We applaud your patriotism, sacrifices, and brave efforts in serving our country and your family for their support of your service. We thank you for your service. Without your efforts and your families’ support, our country would not stand so boldly, shine so bright, and live so free.

You now have earned a rest, so go fly with the Angels, go rest high on that mountain; your work on earth is done. Go to heaven a-shoutin’ Love for the Father and the Son.

Another great Soldier has gone home, “Fallen, Yet Not Forgotten, Soldier for Life”.

Obituary, Visitation, and Service details:  

Services will be held at 1:30 P.M. Saturday, February 24, 2024, at Hulett-Winstead Sumrall Chapel for Mr. Larry Lott, 83, of Saucier, MS.

Larry Tim Lott  transitioned to Heaven peacefully on February 16, 2024, following a long battle with progressive dementia.

Larry is survived by his wife of 59 years, Charlotte Lott and sons David and Dale Lott. He was preceded in death by his son, Timmy Lott and granddaughters, Gillian Lott and Rose-Marie Lott.

He was born in Sumrall, Mississippi on March 31, 1940, to parents, Harmon and Maedell Lott. He met his wife Charlotte in Carson, Mississippi in 1964 at a skating rink. They hit it off and soon thereafter married and have been married for 59 years.

Larry was a veteran and served in the National Guard for 11 years. Over the years, Larry had many jobs including monumental mason, automotive body man, insurance appraiser/adjuster and heavy equipment specialist. Larry retired from Crawford and Company in 2001 after 32 years.

He loved working with young men to teach them and was a Sunday school teacher, head of the Royal Ambassadors and an extraordinary boys’ basketball coach who’s teams were undefeated.

His life was surrounded by his family, always taking time to teach them and push his boys to be the very best they could be at whatever they pursued. When his boys were very young, he began teaching them to ride dirt bikes. There was hardly a weekend they were not all in the woods riding trails. Vacations meant going to Colorado for two weeks riding in the mountains.

Larry was passionate about the Lord and instilled Christian values into his family. He always had a passion for music but held this passion back until the mid-1990’s when he began writing and singing gospel music. His son Dale helped him record an album and many other songs such as “How Great Thou Art” in his own style. He went on to sing and share the Gospel at nursing homes helping the elderly.

He was a man of many extraordinary talents and the world was blessed to have him as part of it. Larry will be missed by many. He is with our Lord and Savior now and suffers no more.

Visitation will begin at 11:30 A.M. Saturday, February 24, 2024, at Hulett-Winstead Sumrall Chapel.
