Dr. Larry C. Liebhart, age 72, previously of Madison, Ohio, passed away on Wednesday, August 15, 2018 in Hartville, Ohio.  Born April 1, 1946 in Spring Valley, Illinois, he had resided in Madison, Ohio from 1973 until 2006.  He was a well-respected physician and surgeon in Madison during that time, referred to fondly by his patients as "Doc".

Dr. Liebhart graduated from Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine in 1973, leading him to Northeast Ohio and his internship at Richmond Heights General Hospital.  He and several classmates all decided on Madison, and the now closed Northeastern Ohio General Hospital, as the community that they wanted to serve in.  He passed his General Practice board certification in the early 1990's.  He never stopped learning about medicine, reading medical journals, and pursuing advanced techniques and certifications.    

In March 2006, Dr. Liebhart suffered a brain hemorrhage, which left him unable to continue to pursue his passions; medicine, traveling, hunting, trap shooting and collecting firearms and other artifacts.

Dr. Liebhart was predeceased by his mother, Sophie Marie Trahd (Cassassa Liebhart) father Wayne Liebhart, and half-sister Cheryl Trahd. 

Left to cherish his memory are his loving children, Jesse Liebhart, Bellevue, Washington, Rachael Liebhart Sholtis (Kyle), Uniontown, Ohio, and Derek Liebhart, Perry, Ohio.  He is also survived by his twin brother Jerry Liebhart of Granville, IL; half-sisters Nickie Lucas of Spring Valley, IL and Laurie Feld of Peoria, IL.  He leaves behind many nieces and nephews.  His memory will be remembered also by, Heather Staley, Perry, OH, and ex-wife, Dorene Ross (Spear Liebhart) of Seattle, WA, along with both of their families.


Calling hours will be Saturday, August 18 from 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM at Spear-Mulqueeny Funeral Home, 667 Mentor Avenue, Painesville, Ohio.  The funeral service will follow at 3:00 PM.  Private cremation and inurnment will take place at Maple Grove Cemetery, Thompson, Ohio.

The family would like to thank the many care givers who have dedicated their time and compassion towards his care over the  the past several years.
