R. Larry Sisson
Kent civic leader and athletic booster Robert "Larry" Sisson was an
enthusiastic supporter of his alma mater, Kent State University, its athletic
teams and the Kent community.
Mr. Sisson, 71, whose activities earned him the Kent State University
Alumni Association's Distinguished Service Award last fall, died Tuesday
A partner of Greer Heating in Kent, he was a 1952 graduate of Kent
State University, earning a bachelor's degree in pre-law.
He helped start I Back a Kent Athlete (IBAKA), the forerunner of the
Blue and Gold athletic booster organization, in 1959. He also helped found
the Blue and Gold Club, serving as president in 1978 and 1979 and as a
board member in 1993.
Paul Amodio, former KSU athletic director, said Mr. Sisson would frequently
attend away football games, whether the team was playing in the Tangerine
Bowl in Florida or a regular game against Central Michigan.
An active fund-raiser, Mr. Sisson also won most fund-raising contests
the Blue and Gold Club held and was the top individual fund-raiser for
He also entertained visiting athletic staff at his home for several
football seasons with no charge to KSU athletics or Blue and Gold.
"He did things for the organization people didn't realize," Amodio
said. "He dedicated a lot of his time. He took the Blue and Gold from a
part-time to a full-time job."
He also was actively involved behind the scenes in Republican politics,
serving as an executive committee member of the Portage County Republican
Party and a precinct committeeman. His father-in-law, Redmond Greer, and
sister-in-law, Nancy Hansford, were both former Kent mayors.
"If he believed in something, he would do whatever he could," Amodio
said. "His great love and loyalty to the university and the community were
obvious in so many ways."
Anita Herington, KSU associate vice president of alumni and community
relations, recalled that Mr. Sisson would purchase watermelons and serve
them to the football team at the end of the team's two-a-day football practices
as a way of saying thank you. It was a tradition he started in the early
1970s, when Don James was coach, and continued through the years when James
Corrigal coached the team.
"He bled blue and gold. There's no question at all in my mind," she
said. "He loved his alma mater. He did more for this university's athletic
department than almost anyone I can think of on a volunteer basis."
The Distinguished Service Award is presented once a year to alumni
and non-alumni who contribute their time and talents to help advance and
bring positive recognition to the university. It is the second highest
award given by the alumni association, Herington said.
"Larry was just a fine man and a real asset to athletics at the university
for many years," said Jerry Hawkins, who had served with him in the Blue
and Gold Club. "He was a wonderful person and he'll be missed by many at
Mr. Sisson, along with Jack Urchek, formed the Brunch Bunch Thanksgiving
charity fund-raiser in 1968 and was an active organizer of the event through

and receiving a certificate of merit for outstanding service in 1961. He
