Larry James Tischendorf Obituary

York, Maine-Larry James Tischendorf, 82, passed away suddenly on Tuesday, January 16, 2024.


Larry was born in 1941 in New Albany, Indiana. He graduated from the University of Indiana with a BS degree in business. He owned two companies, a stone decking company and a packaging company, and hated to retire because he missed the social aspect. 


He served his country as a Lieutenant in the U.S. Navy. He was on a recovery team as an Air Intelligence Officer on the USS Lake Champlain A/C Carrier for Gemini 3 and Gemini 5 space flights. Larry loved music, was an accomplished trumpet player, and was the U.S. Navy Band Leader on the USS Lake Champlain. He received a National Defense Service Medal. 


Larry loved boating, both on the ocean and on Lake Winnipesaukee, vacations in warm climates, snorkeling, bird watching on the river, being outdoors, and was an avid reader. He would always say “I love to watch the tide come in and the tide go out.” He had a great sense of humor, loved to entertain, and had a wide circle of friends. 


He is survived by his wife Cynthia and daughter Tracy. There will be a private service at a later date. 


In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Humane Society of the US, 1255 23rd St. NW Suite 450, Washington, DC 20037 or the American Red Cross. 


Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.

We are sorry for your loss.
