Lawrence Everett Phillipson, 95, of Amery passed away on October 1, 2018. He was born in 1923 in Milwaukee and grew up on a farm near Coral City, Wisconsin during the Great Depression. After enlisting in the U.S. Marine Corps in 1943 and serving in World War Two's Pacific Theater in the Marshall Islands and Iwo Jima campaigns, for which he earned a Purple Heart, Larry discovered his talent for music and entertaining, and pursued a musical career that included television appearances and numerous record releases spanning several decades under the stage name "Larry Lee." Larry moved to Amery in 1972 with wife Linnea (nee Sandin, preceded in death 2009) and son Sandin. Larry was active in the community, serving as VFW post commander, and as chaplain concurrently in the VFW and American Legion, and was the oldest serving American Legion chaplain. He may be best remembered for his weekly poem featured in the Amery Free Press. The oldest of 12 siblings, Larry is survived by brothers Howard, Conrad, and Dale, and sister Jeanette. Visitation will be at Williamson White Funeral Home on Friday, October 12 from 1-4 p.m., with concluding honor guard ceremony at 4 p.m. Remains will lie at the Northern Wisconsin Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Spooner, Wisconsin.
