LARRY W. ISER [Joppa]

JOPPA — Larry William Iser, 74, of Joppa, passed away on Friday, Feb. 8, 2013, at his home after a long courageous battle with cancer.

Born in Romney, W.Va., he was the son of the late Hamilton Martin and Harriet Elizabeth Jenkins Iser.

A veteran of the U.S. Army, he was a manager of Drug Fair, worked for Tom's Snack Foods and later his own business, Iser Snack Sales. He started working at the age of 10 as a newspaper delivery boy and had a strong work ethic, never taking a sick day.

He especially enjoyed family gatherings, monthly games with the “poker boys,” blues festivals, watching the Ravens, the old Baltimore Colts, the Orioles and WV Mountaineer's games. After retiring, he took pleasure in tending his flowers and going to the movies, especially old Westerns. He was an active member of NAMI, Harford County, for many years having served as librarian, and annual walk chairman.

Mr. Iser is survived by his wife of 50 years, Regina Carter Iser; son, David Hamilton Iser, of Joppa; daughters, Carol Iser Pelletier, of St. Louis, Mo. and Linda Iser Clifton, of Belcamp; brothers, Perry and Terry “Tommy” Iser, of Romney, W.Va.; grandchildren, Emily Iser, Angela Reiber, Alex and Nicholas Pelletier; step grandchildren, Delisa, Makaila and Marcus Clifton and great-granddaughter, Melody Fofana.

Visitation will be Saturday from 1 to 2 p.m., with a service at 2 p.m. in the McComas Funeral Home, Abingdon.

We would like to thank the excellent doctors and staff at the Ambulatory Oncology Center and Franklin Square Hospital.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to: MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center Foundation, 9000 Franklin Square Drive, Baltimore, MD 21237.
