GERALD C. LARRABEE, ACTIVE IN SCOUTING

Services for Gerald C. Larrabee, 85, of Whitney Avenue, active in the Boy Scouts of America since 1929, will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday in the Otto Redanz Funeral Home Inc., Michigan Avenue at 10th Street. Burial will be in Memorial Park Cemetery, Lewiston.

Larrabee, a native of Cuba, N.Y., died Thursday (Dec. 20, 1990) in his home.

He lived in Niagara Falls since 1911 and was active in scouting at the Pierce Avenue Presbyterian Church, where he was a Boy Scout in his youth and later served as assistant scoutmaster, then as scoutmaster for Troop 12 and a member of the troop's committee of advisers.

He interrupted his scouting career to serve as an Army medic from 1942 until 1945.

During a scouting reunion two years ago, he received letters of commendation from President Reagan, Rep. John J. LaFalce, D-Kenmore, and state Sen. John B. Daly, R-Lewiston.

He also was a member of the choir and a Sunday School teacher at his church.

He is survived by a sister, Helen Budd.
