December 24, 1929 - May 27, 2020
Lawrence E. Chaney, 90, of Avon Park Florida went on to be with the Lord, May 27th, 2020 at Advent Health in Sebring Florida. Born December 24, 1929 at Huntsville, Alabama, he was the son of the late Walter Chaney and Nora Baker Chaney. He leaves his two sons, Bruce Chaney and David Chaney along with two daughters, Sheree Spinodal and Susan Osborn, one surviving brother Hosea Chaney. He leaves grandchildren Seth Edwards, Eden Osborn Sonya Spindola, Amanda Cleveland, and many other great grandchildren. He was never one to shy away from hard work. At 7 years old, he would help his father (Poppa) pick cotton on the farm in Madison, Alabama. He also served our country in the US Army as an Airborne soldier. In January of 1959, Mr. Chaney started a lifelong career, serving over 30 years, with Metropolitan Life Insurance Company. He took great pride in his business, earning the certification of CLU (Certified Life Underwriter), as well as many other certifications to better serve his clients. His outstanding reputation led him to recruit and train numerous young men and women who are serving in the Life Insurance Profession to this day. He never met a stranger and could still remember many of his first client’s names, he loved to serve others. A great leader, motivator, coach, mentor, father and best friend who will be greatly missed. One of his last wishes was to make sure the Chaney family knew his great love for each of them. His favorite verse was 1 Corinthians 13…and now these three remain Faith, Hope and LOVE. But the greatest of these is LOVE. Graveside services will be held 2:00 pm (Central) Tuesday June 9th at Pickett Cemetery near Hampton, Arkansas.
