Cerka,
Lawrence Warren Jr.
Ludington, Michigan

Mr. Lawrence Warren Cerka Jr., age 73, passed away Wednesday, May 25, 2022. He was born in Muskegon, MI on December 12, 1948 to Lawrence & Willodene (Wolfe) Cerka Sr. Larry graduated from Orchard View High School, where he played Basketball and received a BS degree in Science from Ferris State College. He had worked as a teacher and wrestling coach at Shelby Jr. High School in his early years and then worked in Mental Health as a trainer/teacher. He worked for many years as an independent contractor in Medical Equipment Sales. Prior to retiring he returned to the Mental Health field at Ludington Memorial Medical Hospital. Larry married the former Susan (Stranahan) MacDonald on July 25, 1981. Larry was an avid deer hunter, loved completing the newspaper's daily crossword puzzle and enjoyed participation on a local trivia team. He was an avid sports fan and followed all sports as a "hobby", especially the Detroit teams even though they regularly disappointed him. But most of all he loved spending time with his family and grandchildren.
