Larry Donnell Burrell
SoVaNow.com / July 09, 2013
Larry “Hassan” Donnell Burrell, the only son of Willie Lee Burrell and Elnora Smith Burrell, was born on Aug. 28, 1950 in Clarksville.
Larry “Hassan” quietly transitioned this life on Wednesday, July 3, 2013.
Larry was an affectionate fun-loving little boy. He and his only sister Alfreda shared many stories of their childhood memories with the family in Clarksville. He carried this love of Virginia throughout his entire life, often speaking of his retirement plans, which were to return to his beloved Clarksville. He was truly his “Father’s Son”. Larry was educated in the Philadelphia public school system and was a proud graduate of Germantown High School. He then entered the United States Marine Corp., and served his country proudly. After returning to civilian life, Larry pursued many vocations. He was gifted with many talents. Tailoring clothes, gardening and jack-of-all trades among them. He was gainfully employed as a building engineer at the River House complex in Arlington, until prevented by illness. Whenever family and friends needed help with any home improvement or remodeling, Larry was just a phone call away. Always willing to help and make things better. He always brought such joy to all, just entering the room. Even in the most difficult situations, he would find some humor in it. Larry’s love for hunting, cars (trucks) and expensive hats was well known to all. He was very stylish.
Larry “Hassan” embraced the Muslim religion with all his heart, educating family and friends in the teaching of the Quran. He truly loved his family. His cousins were very special to him and he always kept close contact.
In addition to his many cousins he leaves to cherish his memory, a loving wife, Jeanette; two wonderful daughters, Tahyeeka and Hasina; one adored grandson Amin; his dedicated m other, Elnora; his devoted sister, Freda; god-brother, Garfield Duckett; nephew, Terrance; special grand niece and nephew Safeeyah and Tariq; several loving aunts; one uncle, General Lee Smith; and a host of other relatives and friends.
