Lawrence Martin Vaughan
April 8, 1941 - February 27, 2023

Lawrence “Larry” Martin Vaughan, 81, went to his heavenly home Monday, February 27, 2023 surrounded by the family that loved him so dearly. 

Larry was born April 8, 1941. He grew up in Halifax, North Carolina but called Jackson his home for 39 years. For the past 6 years, Larry and his wife Kitty have called Sunset Harbor their home.  He graduated from Weldon High School as part of the class of 1959 and attended both Mars Hill University and Greensboro College. Larry was most well known as being the owner of a small family grocery store in Jackson called White Star.  He was a loving husband and father but most importantly he was a faithful servant to God.  He loved spending time with his family and enjoyed meeting people wherever he went.  He never knew a stranger and was known by many as a peacemaker.  His passion for serving was evident as he always put others before himself. He was an active member of Jackson United Methodist Church, serving on several committees. After moving to Sunset Harbor Larry and his wife became members of Calvary Baptist Church in Shallotte, NC. He was a member of the Lions Club of Jackson, NC and was also a member of the Royal White Masonic Lodge #2 of Halifax, NC. He found enjoyment in fishing, spending time with family, viewing the afternoon sunsets from his golf cart, and watching his grandchildren grow.  

Larry is preceded in death by his parents, Gilbert and Elizabeth Vaughan and brother, Charles Vaughan.

Larry is survived by his wife, Kitty Vaughan; daughters: Sophia (Kyle) Ash of Cornelius, NC, Sinden (Tom) Schoedel of King George, VA, and Denise Lassiter of Rich Square, NC; grandchildren: Stella and Gracie Ash, Johnna (Scott) Lee, and Kayla (Matt) Ricks; great-grandchildren: Addelyn and Weston Lee, Cheyanne and Maci Ricks; sister in law: Emily Vaughan and numerous nephews, nieces and cousins.
