He was born Nov. 25, 1951 in Chat­tanooga, Tenn. but spent his life un­til adult­hood in Cal­houn.

He was pre­ceded in death by his par­ents, Roy E. and Jean Tate Chas­tain of Cal­houn, and his brother, Ti­mothy L. Chas­tain, also of Cal­houn.

Larry re­ceived his un­der­grad­u­ate de­gree in psy­chol­ogy from West Ge­or­gia Col­lege in Car­rolton. After work­ing in di­rect ser­vice for peo­ple with de­vel­op­men­tal dis­abil­i­ties in Dal­ton and peo­ple with sub­stance abuse prob­lems in Rome, he at­tended the Univer­sity of Ge­or­gia for grad­u­ate school. He was awarded a Master of So­cial Work de­gree and a Master’s de­gree in Pub­lic Ad­min­is­tra­tion. Larry spent his ca­reer in pub­lic ser­vice in­clud­ing the State of Ge­or­gia’s 10- county North­east Ge­or­gia men­tal health sys­tem, the 13- county Ge­or­gia Moun­tains men­tal health sys­tem, and the District Of­fice of the 10- county North­east Health District. His field of ex­per­tise was in busi­ness and per­son­nel ad­min­is­tra­tion, cost ac­count­ing, and help desk sup­port for health depart­ment work­ers in field of­fices. What­ever his job ti­tle, he was ap­pre­ci­ated for his em­pa­thetic sup­port of em­ploy­ees/ clients in the field, his tech­ni­cal pre­ci­sion, and eth­i­cal ap­proach to busi­ness prac­tices.

Larry was renowned and ad­mired for his gen­er­ous and gen­tle spirit. His friends were fa­mil­iar with his in­tel­li­gent, wry, dry, and sub­tle sense of hu­mor. In his pri­vate life, he was an avid mu­sic col­lec­tor and scholar. His au­dio col­lec­tion mar­veled friends and strangers alike. His pri­mary ex­per­tise was Amer­i­can Blues and Amer­i­cana, but he had wide rang­ing tastes that in­cluded jazz, rock and county rock.

Larry’s pas­sion was live mu­sic and sup­port­ing pro­fes­sional mu­si­cians. Over the years he de­vel­oped per­sonal re­la­tion­ships with many of the mu­si­cians he ad­mired and pro­moted. He was a mem­ber of many or­ga­ni­za­tions such as the New Or­leans Mu­si­cians Clinic, Mu­sic Maker Re­lief Foun­da­tion, The At­lanta Blues So­ci­ety, The Blues Foun­da­tion, and MusiCares. He per­son­ally as­sisted sev­eral Ge­or­gia- based blues mu­si­cians in times of need, and helped them get med­i­cal care, pay bills, pro­vide trans­porta­tion, help with fu­neral ex­penses, and other life and ca­reer sup­port­ing needs. He helped friends and strangers in need, pro­vid­ing ma­te­rial and emo­tional sup­port.

Bern­stein Fu­neral Home in Athens pro­vided cre­ma­tion ser­vice and sup­port. His soul was bound to New Or­leans and that will be the fi­nal rest­ing place of his cre­mains. No flow­ers are needed or re­quested. Larry would have pre­ferred that you sup­port live mu­sic and help oth­ers.

There will be a ca­sual drop- in cel­e­bra­tion of Larry’s life on Satur­day, Sept. 15, 2018, from 1 to 4 p. m. at his res­i­dence in Win­der. If you need di­rec­tions, email lisa. mcki@ gmail. com. Betty Tem­ples
