Larry Donnell Wilkerson slipped away into eternal rest on November 2, 2017. He was born on April 19, 1958 in Memphis, Tennessee to the late Nellie Mae Wilkerson Jones and Leamon Wilkerson, Jr. He was preceded in death by his mother, maternal grandparents, Arthur & Mary Gilliam; and paternal grandparents, Leamon Wilkerson, Sr. and Myrtle Walker Gant. Larry received his early education from the Norfolk Public School system. After graduating from Norview High School, he later decided to serve his country and joined the United States Army. He was employed at the Norfolk Naval Base for many years. Additionally, he was employed at Professional Cleaning Service of Tidewater. Larry is survived by his wife, Elaine Wilkerson of Norfolk, Virginia; daughter, April Knight (Joey) of Norfolk, Virginia; father, Leamon Wilkerson, Jr. of Memphis, Tennessee; sisters, Debbie Wilkerson Ford (Ronnie) of Southaven, Mississippi and Cassie Renee Harrison (Mike) of Louisville, Kentucky; brothers, Melvin B. Wilkerson (Dianne) of Norfolk, Virginia and Darryl Terrell Wilkerson (Sherri) of Louisville, Kentucky; and stepfather, Charlie Jones of Norfolk, Virginia. Also left to cherish his memory are his grandchildren, LaRobert King, LaShawnda King, and Demetrius Bailey; great-grandchildren, Elijah King and Zion King; and a host of sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, great-nephews, cousins, and his very special aunt, Dorothy Graham of Virginia Beach, Virginia. Larry was a loving husband, dad, granddad and brother. He enjoyed the simple things in life such as spending time on Sundays with his daughter, son-in-law, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. His favorite pastimes included watching the Redskins, eating out, and completing jigsaw puzzles, where he would sometimes complete a book a day. He will be truly missed by all that knew and loved him.

Danielle To the Family in your time of need. We look forward to the day when sickness pain and death will be no more, Revelation 21:4.
