July 22, 1948 – November 24, 2020

    Mr. Larry Wayne Cofer, age 72, a resident of Chocowinity passed away Tuesday November 24, 2020 at his home.

    He was a beloved father and grandfather, and "Papa Chink." Mr. Cofer always went out of his way to help others, it was that giving spirit that helped him decide to donate his body to Duke University School of Medicine.

    Married to the love of his life, Margaret Ann Barr for 35 years, she preceded him in death. His father, Shafer Cofer preceded him in death, as well as his daughter Katina Priest. His brother, Fred Cofer preceded him in death.

    He served in the Army as a Sharpshooter and received the National Defense Service Metal. He retired from Norfolk Southern Railroad where he was a train conductor.

    Survivors include his mother Margie Cofer of Washington, his son Claiborne Cofer and his wife Linda of Virginia Beach, daughter Shannon Caldwell and her husband Josh of Chocowinity, daughter Sara Cutler and her husband Donnie of Washington, grandchildren Tyler, Chase, Kara, Cullen, Shane, Colleen, Megan, Hunter, Zachary, Devin, Makayla, Makenzie, and Kayden. Mr. Cofer had multiple great grand children.

    Due to Covid the family is not receiving visitors at the home at this time, services will be private at a later date.

    Mr. Cofer has mourned the loss of his wife since 2017, since she lost her battle to lung cancer. In lieu of flowers the family asks that you donate to a Washington resident who is facing his own battle with lung cancer and is in need of assistance, Gary Thompson. Please send donations to 1314 Old Bath Highway, Washington, NC 27889.
