Larry J. Bair, 77, of Littlestown, passed away suddenly on Monday, August 3, 2020 while vacationing with family in North Topsail Island, NC. He was the loving husband of Bonnie Bair; together they would have celebrated 57 years of marriage on September 22, 2020.

Born February 23, 1943 in Hanover, PA, he was the son of the late Theron Bair and Marguerite (Yealy) Bair, oldest of nine children.

Mr. Bair was a 1961 graduate of Littlestown High School. He received a Bachelor’s Degree and Master’s Degree in Education from Shippensburg University. Mr. Bair proudly served as an Elementary School Principal in the Carroll County Public School system for 32 years. In addition, he held multiple leadership roles in the community for Boy Scouts and Little League. His passion for sports kept him busy as a coach, commissioner, referee and umpire, as well as pitcher for the over 60 Carroll County Men’s Softball League.

He was dedicated to the Lord with membership and service at St. John’s church in Littlestown, and then later, became the first Church Council President for New Hope Faith Community. Most recently, he and his family were attending services at The Church of The Good Shepherd.

In addition to his wife, Larry was survived by his son Darryl Bair, wife, Kellie and granddaughter Lily Jo of Glen Burnie, MD; daughter Amy Bair of Littlestown, PA, along with his siblings, nieces and nephews. He will be sadly missed by his granddogs Max and Kona. He cherished spending time with his family and enjoyed golfing, watching westerns, and playing games with friends.

A private, graveside service is being held with his Pastor Jeff Reaver Sr. officiating. A memorial service to celebrate the life and memories of Larry Bair will be held at a later date. To honor Larry’s legacy, an educational scholarship will be established in his name by friends and family.

The family has entrusted the funeral arrangements to the Little’s Funeral Home and is grateful for the compassionate assistance from Jones Funeral Home in Jacksonville, NC.  Online condolences may be shared on

Bonnie: I am so sorry to hear of Larry's passing. He was a true gentleman and a fantastic coach. I will always remember the times we faced each other, as coaches, in the Manchester Little League games. Larry was coaching Maurer Miller and I was coaching Harrell Agency. We had a great rivalry and had great kids on both teams. I also remember the time when Larry and I were coaching the All-Star team and were in the championship game when we stayed back to play the game and you and the rest of the family went on vacation to Ocean City, MD. We met you later after winning the championship game. Very good and lasting memories. Please accept my deepest sympathies. May Larry rest in peace and may God bless.

I am so sorry to hear of Larry’s passing. I will always remember him as larger than life and a heart to go with it. I fondly remember him as my first principal and teaching me so many valuable lessons. Prayers and healing thoughts for everyone. Larry you were a gift!

My condolences. Larry was Commissioner of the Carroll County Soccer Officials when I became a member. He was instrumental in my training. I will always be grateful to him for that. He assigned me to my first high school game, a JV match, my first varsity game, my first playoff game, and my first State Game! He brought me along in the spirit of education-based athletics. To become a MPSSAA soccer referee, part of that process was to attend a state clinic held by the State Rules Interpreter. Back in the day that was a man named Steve Malone. Steve has since retired. The MPSSAA interviewed for another person to be in that position. They hired me. On behalf of the MPSSAA, Old Line Board Of Soccer Officials, and I; we offer our sincere sympathy.
