Larry Lee Exner


Larry Lee Exner passed away peacefully with family by his side on June 12, 2022, at Our Hospice of South Central Indiana at 8:10 pm.

Larry was born on January 19, 1940, to Wanda Delphine Faulker and James Exner. Larry married Mary Ann Herr on June 26, 1960. They would have been married 62 years this year.

Larry had retired from Cummins Engine Company in 2000 after working there for forty years. He used to race cars at Twin City Speedway and 25th Fairgrounds in the 1960s through the 1970s, just to name a few places. Larry also enjoyed hunting and fishing, but perhaps the most favorite thing he enjoyed was spending time with his grandchildren. He was a member of the Columbus Moose Lodge #398.

Survivors include his wife, Mary Ann, of Columbus; his daughter, Kelly (Jay) Moore, of Columbus; son, Greg (Jane) Exner, of Columbus; grandchildren, Megan and Jordan Moore, both of Columbus; and his half-brother, Roy Faulkner.

Larry is preceded in death by his mother, Wanda Delphine Faulkner; his father, James Exner; and two sons, Brian Exner and Anthony “Tony” Exner.

Cremation will take place and there will be no visitation or funeral service. However, a celebration of life dinner will be held at the Columbus Moose Lodge, 330 8th Street, Columbus IN 47201 on Saturday, June 18, 2022, at 3 pm. All family and friends are welcome.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Our Hospice of South Central Indiana.

Arrangements are entrusted to Jewell-Rittman Family Funeral Home.
