Lawrence John “Larry” Hetzel, 57, of Wheeling, WV, passed away Thursday, June 22, 2023 at Liza’s Place. 

He was born September 27, 1965, a son of Laurale (Stenger) Hetzel and the late John Harold Hetzel. Larry was a member of Heaven Bound Ministries and was very patriotic. He was a 911 dispatcher with Ohio County but had always expressed interest in broadcasting. Larry was a hard working man, his wife would say, “He liked working more than sleeping”. 

In addition to his father he is preceded in death by his father-in-law, Dean Hays. 

Larry is survived by his loving wife of 29 years, Brenda E. (Hays) Hetzel; his mother, Laurale Hetzel; three children Tami Tustin, Cari (Robert) Walsh and Tracy (Larry) Brandon; two brothers, James L. (Connie) Hetzel and Jerald L. (Nikki) Hetzel; his mother-in-law, Dorothy Hays; 13 grandchildren; six great-grandchildren and one on the way; close friend of the family, Jeannie Pierce Waychoff and several aunts, uncles and cousins. 

Family and friends will be received Sunday, July 23, 2023 at the Vineyard Church from 2 pm until time of service at 3 pm. 

The family would like to extend their gratitude to the staff at Liza’s Place for all of their care and compassion given to Larry.

Larry will be well received by our Lord. He was a great guy. Always a gentleman, a pleasure to wait on at Neelys where he frequented often. He will surely be missed by anyone that knew him. Prayers and condolences to All. RIP my friend!

I have known Larry from the time he was a young boy working in his grandfather’s store, Becker’s Hardware. Always a very nice, and polite young man that grew into a very nice, and polite gentleman, coworker, and friend. Always removing his hat when he talked to me. It was an honor to know him. I will miss you my friend and our many conversations. Many, many hugs and prayers to everyone.
