William Large Obituary

William C. Large, 91, the husband of the late Mary Byrne Large, of Fleming, passed away Wednesday, January 24, 2024 at his home. Born in Fleming on December 16, 1932, Bill was the son of the late George L. and Julia M. Speed Large. He married his love, Mary Byrne Large February 13, 1954, prior to serving his country in the United States Army and with the National Guard following his honorable discharge from active service. He was civically minded and involved in the community as a member of Fleming No. 2 Volunteer Fire Department, Union Springs School Board and Antique Tractor Club. He was a Fleming Town Assessor, served on the Zoning Board and was a member of the Second Baptist Church. 


In addition to the family farm, William worked at Remington, Singer and was a bus driver for Union Springs Schools. He could be found wearing his John Deere suspenders or bib overalls while doing what he loved: driving his antique or John Deere tractors and driving his Ford King Ranch pickup truck, all while donning a good cigar to chew, not smoke. 


He is survived by his daughters Donna Caruana (Mark), Diane Franklin (Mike), Darlene Dwyer (Randy), Darcy Cheney (Larry) and Denise Boglione (David); grandchildren Stan Cuff (Karen), Alan Cuff (Erin), Melanie Conklin, Jennifer Caruana, Jada Goulette, Samantha Atwater, Randy Dwyer Jr., Johnathan Dwyer (Meghan), Jennifer Townes, Lindsey Driscoll (Gideon), Mark Boglione (Goldie) and Michael Boglione (Jamie); great grandchildren Maggie, Mary Grace and Taylor Cuff, Dylon Conklin, Alex, Jayla, Pasley, Mia and Lucey Dwyer, Evan Townes, Abbie Rose and Andrew Boglione and Nicholas and Everett Boglione; siblings Jackie Pethybridge (Ronnie), Lenard Large (Clair) and Richard Murphy; and several nieces and nephews.  


In addition to his parents George Large and Julia "Betty" Pineau; as well as his wife Mary, William is predeceased by a brother Donald Large; and a half-brother Gordon Murphy. 


The Large family wishes to express their deepest appreciation and love, to the private care givers, who made it possible to fulfill the wish of both of their parents to stay in their home until their journey to heaven. You are like a second family, and they are most grateful to have you.
