In memory of
Larry C. Akers
Larry C. Akers Oct. 8, 1939 - Feb. 15, 2021 Larry C. Akers, 81, passed away Feb. 15, 2021 at Lewiston Transitional Care of Cascadia from complications of Covid-19 and dementia. Larry was born Oct. 8, 1939 to Lee W. Akers and Florence M. (Tipton) Akers, in Pocatello, Idaho. Larry had two older sisters, Nancylee and Joyce. His family moved to Vernonia, Ore., where he finished high school in 1958. After attending college in Monmouth, Ore., for a brief time, Larry moved to Portland to work. He married Barbara Neeley and they had a son, Steven Charles. He was drafted into the Army and was stationed in Germany for two years. Larry and Barbara divorced. He then married Marge Dempster and they had a son, Anthony Lee. Larry spent several years in the Portland area working as a sales rep and foreman for a couple of different companies. He co-owned an upholstery company for awhile and, with his third wife Regina, owned a Mexican restaurant. In 1981 he married Bonnie (Reich) Stratton, "his fourth and final wife." She added two sons, Robert W. and Jason M. Stratton, to the family mix. This busy couple almost immediately quit their jobs, sold the house and moved to the Oregon Coast to own and operate a Myrtle wood factory and gift shop. Larry quickly learned to be a wood turner. After about five years they moved to a different shop and also started working Arts and Craft shows around the western states. Larry, being the friendly person he was, caused them to make a lot of wonderful friends along the way. Larry was preceded in death by his parents; sister, Nancylee (Clair) Devine; son, Steven; and stepson, Robert. Larry is survived by wife, Bonnie; stepson, Jason (Lily) Stratton; son, Anthony; sister, Joyce (David) Dehart; five grandkids; three great-grandkids; and numerous nieces and nephews. We are thankful for all of the wonderful friendships shared, for the care and support given, and all of the many calls, cards and prayers sent. There will be a private interment at Willamette National Cemetery In Portland sometime in the Spring. Please sign the online guest book at www.oregonlive.com/obits
