Larry Marvin Alley, 59, passed away on November 16, 2019, in his home. He was born September 15, 1960 in Bremerhaven, Germany, son of Friedeborg and Robert Alley.  Larry’s love of people and his truly giving spirit was evident in all aspects of his life.

Next he moved to Hong Kong and worked for H.B. Fuller Company. Lastly, he was employed as a consultant for other well known shoe companies.

Alley, of Tecumseh, Mich; his brother, Michael and wife Susan Alley, of Tecumseh; his sister, Heidi (Alley) Meschwitzer, of Adrian, Mich.; his life long and best friend, Vincent Kong, of Hong Kong, China; and his great-aunt, Marlene Dallas of Tecumseh.
