BLESSING, LARRY DEAN "D.B." M.D. Our beloved Larry Blessing "DB" went Home to be with Jesus on Sunday, July 20, 2014. Larry was born in Bethany, Missouri to William Vodra and Lenora Bernice (Salmon) Blessing on October 23, 1942. Larry married Mary Jane Cox in 1959 and graduated with honors from Harrison High School in 1960. He received a Bachelor's of Science Degree in Biology and earned a Medical Doctor's degree from University of Missouri, Columbia in 1974. He attended the University of Kansas from 1974 through 1977 for his Internship and Residency in Internal Medicine. Following that, he returned to the University of Missouri for a Fellowship in Gastroenterology from 1977-1978. Larry was a dedicated doctor to his patients, loved being a physician and truly enjoyed his many years of practice. Those who worked with Dr. Blessing adored and admired him and were his dearest friends. He began blessing and saving lives in Albany, Missouri, continued his career in Morgantown, West Virginia and ultimately moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico where he finished his career as Chief Gastroenterologist at Lovelace Medical Center. After a long and satisfying career, Dr. Blessing retired in 1999 and within the same year became accepted as a member of The National Registry Of Who's Who. Larry's heart was remarkably big as he was a dear brother, husband, father, step-father, grandfather, and surrogate to those who needed a father. Larry had a grand sense of humor and wouldn't watch a movie without a bucket of buttered popcorn by his side. Larry spent his retirement years serving and loving his church family. Larry loved gardening and fondly reminisced on his years as a farmer; his tomatoes, sweet corn and green chile were unbeatable. Larry is survived by his loving wife of 17 years, Janet Blessing; his children, Christopher (Debbie) Blessing, Roxanna (Larry) Braaten, Paul (Sharon) Blessing, Brian Blessing, Samantha (Michael) Gabaldon and Chris (Lori) Partain; as well as 13 grandchildren; one great- grandchild and another Blessing expected to arrive next year. Larry D. Blessing was preceded in death by his parents; sister, Leta (Blessing) Landes; brother, Charles Blessing; sister, Beverly (Blessing) Shipers; and nephew, Gregory Blessing. Our quiet, funny and sweet "DB" will always hold a special place in our hearts.
