Larry Asbury Woodruff

April 8, 1942 — July 11, 2022


Larry Woodruff of Atlanta, age 80, passed away peacefully at Emory Decatur Hospital on July 11, 2022, surrounded by immediate family members.


Originally from Vienna, Georgia, Larry was a popular and well-respected pharmacist in DeKalb County for many years. In 1965, he received his Doctorate in Pharmacy from the Southern School of Pharmacy in Atlanta (now the Mercer University College of Pharmacy). Over the following decades, he held positions at Briarlake Pharmacy in Tucker, Georgia, and Oak Grove Pharmacy in Decatur, Georgia, where he established many loyal long-time customers. Beginning in 2002, Larry and his beloved wife Faye co-owned and operated Briarcliff Pharmacy / Personal Touch Hallmark with their dear friends Bobby and Vivian Harrell, retiring in 2016. Larry was also a longstanding member of the Georgia Pharmacy Association, serving on many committees over the years, and in 2016 the association presented him with a special award for “Fifty Years of Dedicated Service to Pharmacy”. Larry loved his work, providing personal service to his customers, and he was well-known by all for his friendly smile and his hearty laugh, as well as his trustworthy professionalism. In his spare time, he enjoyed reading, birdwatching, listening to music, and watching sports, especially his beloved Georgia Bulldogs. Larry was also a member of Tucker First Methodist Church.


Larry is survived by his wife of 60 years, Faye Fultz Woodruff of Atlanta; his brother Chuck (and Ann) Woodruff of Dawson, GA; his three sons: Lyle Woodruff of Tucker, Andy Woodruff of Atlanta, and Ben Woodruff of Amsterdam, Netherlands; and his three grandchildren: Logan (and Stephanie) Woodruff of Fort Thomas, KY, Chris Woodruff of Tucker, and Kimmie Woodruff of Atlanta. Larry was also fortunate to have a large and loving extended family, including numerous cousins, in-laws, nieces, and nephews.

Turner & Sons Funeral Home in Decatur, GA, with visitation from 3:00pm - 5:00pm. An additional service will be held in Larry’s hometown of Vienna, GA, officiated by Mr. Lee Guerry, at 2:00 pm Saturday, August 6, 2022, at Brannen-Nesmith Funeral Home.
