Burial will be in St. Mary’s Cemetery immediately following the funeral. Calling hours will be held on Friday, September 8, 2017 from 7:00PM to 9:00PM at Frary Funeral Home, Ogdensburg. Mr. LaRose went to be with our Lord on Monday, September 4, 2017.

David was born on May 31, 1936 in Ogdensburg, the son of William and Mary Sovie LaRose. He attended St. Mary’s High School and graduated from LeMoyne College. He went on to marry his beautiful high school sweetheart Patricia (Tesha) Jane Walsh on May 9, 1959 at St. Mary’s Cathedral. She predeceased him on December 27, 2014.

David’s love will live on through his six children: Kathleen Mary LaRose Hurteau and her husband, Marc, their daughter, Claire Patricia of Medina, Ohio, Susan Jane LaRose of Richland, Michigan, Patti Anne Carpenter and her husband, Lonny, their children, Addison, Abigail, Alex, Autumn, and Amelia of Richland, Michigan, Pamela Jean Ball  and her husband, John, their children, Natalie, Olivia, Madeline, and Samantha, of Fairfax Station, VA, Maureen Elizabeth Barber and her husband, Duane, their children, Jolie and Jaden of Cobleskill, NY; and one son, David Christopher LaRose and his fiancé, Dawn Yerdon, and their son, Trenton, of Ogdensburg; David is predeceased by his four brothers, Robert, Chuck, Dick, John LaRose and sister, Virginia.

He was the owner and operator of State Farm Insurance in Ogdensburg for many years.

David was a member of the Ogdensburg Elk’s Club and  Lion’s Club, a board member  for St. Vincent’s De Paul Society, a supporter of the Boys and Girls Club, and a veteran of the United Stated Army Reserves.

He is most remembered for his love and commitment to his beautiful wife and faithful companion, Ping, the kind of tender and loving father he was to his six children, and the amazing papa he was to his 13 crazy, but unbelievable grandchildren. David could frequently be found playing cards and golfing with his best cronies of all time. He loved being on the banks of the St. Lawrence River, with his contagious smile and infectious brown eyes, always providing a much needed laugh with one of his clever jokes.

Donations may be made in David’s memory to Alzheimer’s Association, at or Alzeihmers Association, P.O. Box 96011, Washington DC 20090-601.

  • Vica Gutierrez Posted September 28, 2017 7:53 AM

    I was deeply saddened to hear of the passing of David. I had the honor of knowing and caring for David. He may not have known my name, but he ALWAYS welcomed me with the biggest heartwarming smile that lit up his eyes and my heart. You can tell what a wonderful father/grandfather he was but the outpouring of love shown by all his beautiful daughters, son, and grandchildren. He has left a wonderful caring legacy through his generous family. Rest peacefully David.. He is home with his wife Tesha where he wanted to be.
