September 12, 1961 – September 10, 2023
Larry Jack Sammons was born in Savannah and lived in the city that he loved for all of his life. He was a registered nurse for several decades and most recently worked at Georgia Regional Hospital. Larry was well-known throughout the downtown community for his love of local music, regardless of band, venue, genre, or skill. He could light up the darkest room with his ever-present smile and contagious laughter. He was a loyal fan of the Atlanta Falcons, even when they played at their worst (which is often).
He will be remembered for many things: his legendary Super Bowl parties, his skill at befriending everyone he met, and his ability to stay out all night long catching as many bands as possible, but he will mostly be remembered for his love and zest for life. The world would be a better place if we all lived like Larry Jack, and we are all better for having known him. He is preceded in death by his parents, Carolyn and Teddy Jack Sammons, and his brother, Rick Sammons. He is survived by his daughter Lisa Sammons, grandson Riley Sanders, sisters Marsha Jividen and Jodi Graham, several nieces and nephews, and his beloved cat, Ziggy.
Larry Jack’s Magical Farewell Tour is scheduled for October 1 at 5:00 p.m. at Starland Yard. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you attend any concert in Larry Jack’s honor. Donations are welcome to be sent to the Savannah Music Festival.Print This Obituary & Condolences
