Former Falmouth High School administrator and teacher Louis S. Larrey Jr. died November 7, at 80 years of age. He had lived in Falmouth for 46 years.
Originally from Westwood, he was the son of Louis S. Larrey Sr. and Rose (Therauf) Larrey. He graduated from Roxbury Latin School in Boston and Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut. He began his career as an English teacher at New London High School in Connecticut and then continued teaching at Lexington High School in Massachusetts.
In 1969, he moved his family to Portland, Oregon, to take part in the opening of a new innovative high school. The following year, he enrolled at Stanford University School of Education as a graduate student, and worked training secondary educators.
In 1973, he and his family moved to Falmouth, where he was one of the house administrators in the new Falmouth High School. In 1992, he became head of the English department. He retired in 1996 and became very involved with community service. He was part of the founding team that developed the Volunteers in Public Schools program, or VIPS. He also assisted in establishing Neighborhood Falmouth, and served on several community boards over the years.
He enjoyed singing with local choruses, boating, gardening, travel and reading.
