BRIDGEPORT, Pa — American Water Polo mourns the passing of Larry Engelman, age 50, of Powell, Tennessee, who went to be with the angels on Monday, December 21, 2020. Larry was born in Columbus, Ohio and was a Senior HVAC Technician at Covenant Health.

A Masters water polo athlete and assistant at the table during tournaments, Engelman had recently taken up blacksmithing and was proud of his own homemade forge.  He also enjoyed water polo, cooking barbeque for friends and family, healthy discussions with his best friends, but most of all, watching The Ohio State football games.  

He is survived by his wife, the love of his life, Melissa Engelman, his parents, Chuck and Sandy Engelman, brother, Jerry Engelman, sister-in-law Paige, nephew Michael, and nieces Megan and Molly, and several aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Larry’s wish was to be cremated, which is being handles by Holley-Gamble Funeral Home in Clinton, Tenn. The family is holding off on services at this time but will plan a celebration of life for friends and family during the summer of 2021 in Tennessee and another in Ohio.

Donations can be made in lieu of flowers to Thompson Cancer Survival Center Foundation at www.covenanthealthgiving.org.
