Larry Newcomb, a longtime resident of Fallbrook, passed away suddenly in his sleep the morning of Aug, 23, 2018. He had just turned 70 the previous week.

Larry was born in Kirkwood, Missouri, to Charles and Mary Newcomb, moved to Oceanside when he was 2 and graduated in 1966 from Oceanside High School. He was drafted into the Army in 1967 for two years, and signed up for a third year so he could play with the Pershing missiles in Germany. He was honorably discharged in 1970.

Larry returned to Oceanside to take over ownership of Fallbrook Equipment Rentals, which he and his wife, Lyn, owned for 25 years. After that first retirement he went back to work several times, landing at the Vista School District for almost 10 years with a forced medical retirement two years ago.

He will be missed cruising around on one of his Harley's as he was a Harley guy for 50-plus years. Lyn was always right behind him wherever the motorbike would take them. They had traveled across Canada, all the western states, and he had ridden down to Cabo with a group of friends. We know his travels have not ended but are just starting for new sights.

Larry is survived by his wife of 45 years, Lyn, of Fallbrook; mother-in-law, Juanita Lankow of Cardiff-By-The Sea; and sister Susan Wilson of Escondido. Visitation will be held Wednesday, Aug. 29, from 4-8 p.m. at Berry-Bell & Hall Mortuary. Nothing fancy and only casual attire; you know Larry wasn't the fancy type of guy.

In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the Fallbrook Animal Sanctuary – he loved his kitties.
