Larry Gene Averett, 72, passed away peacefully in his home after a courageous five year battle with cancer on Friday December 6, 2019 in Springville, Utah. He was born on February 25, 1947 to Gene Ruel and Clara Bird Averett.

Larry was a proud, life-long resident of Springville. He grew up playing in the foothills and swimming at the Mill Ponds. In his early life he was known to be adventurous and mischievous. His many antics and escapades kept us all giggling.

Larry loved music and often entertained the family with yodeling, playing the harmonica, or singing karaoke. Dad had a love of mining and its history. He was especially passionate about the lost Rhodes gold mine. He was well known for being positive and cheerful, for his easy smile and infectious laugh. He was a friend to every stranger and loved spending time with his family.

Larry was blessed to have his parents up until the last year of his life. He was preceded in death by his parents, and his wife of forty years, Janiel Olsen Averett. He is survived by his wife of three years, Maria Averett, who brought much joy to him and cared for him throughout the end of his life. He is also survived by his three children; Jason Averett, Kelli (Rob) Jones, Ashlee (Jason) Henrie, and nine grandchildren.

A Celebration of Life will be held at Legends Motorcycle Museum 1715 West 500 South in Springville at 11:00 am on Friday December 13, 2019. Family and friends may visit Thursday December 12, 2019 from 6:00-8:00 pm at Spring Creek Mortuary 737 North Main Street, Springville and at 10:00 am on Friday December 13, 2019 at Legends in Springville. Interment will be at the Payson Cemetery.
