Larry Ware Obituary, Death – This past weekend, we learned about the demise of Larry “Leaper” Ware, who was a member of the Nam Knights of America MC in the Central Jersey Chapter. This news left us in a state of shock and sadness. Leaper served in the Navy during the Vietnam War and was also the founder and former president of the Central Jersey Chapter. Throughout the years, we have always looked forward to hearing your stories and appreciating your friendship and fraternity.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Brothers of the Central Jersey Chapter and the family of Leaper during this difficult time. Larry found it enjoyable to be in the company of others, to engage in conversation and to laugh, all the while sipping a steaming hot cup of Colombian coffee. It was obvious that he had a deep affection for animals, and in particular canines, because you could frequently find him out walking his own dog, “Bo,” or the dog of a neighbor.
Watching old westerns and making sure that his cars were pristine were two of his favorite things to do in his spare time. He was a rabid supporter of the Washington Redskins, who are now known as The Washington Commanders. In the neighborhood, everyone knew who Larry was and what he did. He was well liked by a great number of people in the area and beyond; he will be sorely missed.
Larry’s parents, Amos and Ruby Ware, his brother Amos (Nobby) Ware, Jr., and his sister Nannie (Baby-Girl) Ware all passed away before him, as well as two brothers-in-law, James Pierce, Jr., and Harvey Lee Wilson; three nephews, Anthony Barleston, Cornelius Wilson, and Harvey Antonio Wilson; and his cherished dog companion, “Bo.”
