Larry Eugene Hadler, Sr., 83, of Greensburg, passed away on July 20, 2022 at Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis.

He was a life-long resident of Greensburg, and a 1956 graduate of Greensburg High School. On November 11, 1958, he married Vicki (Hill) Hadler. 

Larry worked in the research center at Cummins Engine Company, retiring from there after 40-plus years. He spent much of his retirement managing and working on several rental homes. He loved the First Baptist Church of Greensburg, where he was an active member and a deacon. He and his wife traveled with the church to complete ministry service projects.
