Larry Brock McKinney, age 69, of Beckley, WV, gained his Heavenly body on January 29, 2018.
Born in Beckley, WV on September 11, 1948, he was the son of the late Elmer McKinney and Ardeth Varner.

Larry was a Marine Corp Veteran having served with the 3rd Marine Corp Recon Battalion in Vietnam where he was the recipient of many medals for his courage and bravery. He loved his Recon buddies who have remained close throughout the years. Once a Marine, always a Marine. Semper Fi.
