Beloved husband, brother, father, and grandfather Lawrence Alan Dutcher departed this world for the
next one on July 14, 2019, succumbing to long-term illness at the age of 73.
Larry, or Dutch as many friends called him, was born January 26, 1946 in Scranton, PA to Donald and
Mildred (Henn) Dutcher. He was a skilled artist who primarily worked in bronze sculpture and oil
painting whose love of art began at home with his parents and grandparents' works. His formal
education began at Scranton Tech High School and he refined his trade at The Art Students League of
New York, NY and Keystone College in LaPlume PA where he later worked as an adjunct faculty
member. He was a retired machinist from Trion Industries Inc, of Wilkes-Barre and had a love for
nature and the outdoors.
Larry served in the Airforce as a Crew Chief during the Vietnam War and taught Tang Soo Do Karate to
other soldiers when martial arts were not well accepted by the general public. He was able to sway
superiors who previously did not value martial arts, by demonstrating the physical and mental control
they can provide.
Locally, his best-known works stand in downtown Scranton of Tadeusz Kosciuszko which is located on
Spruce Street, and the iconic statue of Edward J. Lynett on Penn Avenue. His other works are scattered
across the country and globe.
Larry was raised and lived in Dutch Hollow in South Side Scranton and was a member of the Parker
Hill Church in Dickson City. On September 13, 1975, he married Theresa H. Evanick. Their family
grew to include daughter, Amie, and sons, Josiah and Jeremy, and eventually son and daughters in law
and grandchildren.
Larry was preceded in death by his parents and by his brother Marc Dutcher and is survived and
forever loved by his wife of 44 years Theresa, his children and their spouses, sister Donna Shelp,
brother Scott Dutcher, five grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and cousins.
The family expresses heart-felt thanks for the comforting and reassuring services Allied Services
Hospice provided for Larry and his family during a deeply personal and trying time.

Funeral services and Military Honors will be held Saturday at 5 pm in the Miller Bean Funeral Home Inc., 436 Cedar Ave. Scranton. Friends and family may pay their respects Saturday from 2 pm until service time. Interment in Fairview Memorial Park will be private at the convenience of the family. In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be made to Allied Hospice, 511 Morgan Hwy., Scranton, PA 18505.
Please visit the funeral home website to leave an online condolence.

Our deepest sympathy to you, Theresa, Amie, Josiah, and Jeremy and to all extended family. Larry was a true gentleman. He was so kind and so intelligent and he gave the best bear hugs anyone could as for. Such a talented artist, indeed. We are blessed to have known him and are proud to have called him our friend.

With love, Donny and Mary Ann Riccardella

To know him was to experience that twinkle in his eye when he grabbed your attention
To know him was to experience that gift he had for intense conversation and ability to share ideas
To know him was to experience a man living as meaningful a life as anyone could hope to imagine

The sadness of his passing will be tempered by the joyful memories of his existence

With our deepest sympathy to Theresa, Amie, Josiah, Jeremy and Donna and Scott
