Larry Gene Amburgey Jr was a staff sergeant for the United States Army. Larry was born on August 26, 1968 and was from Brockton, Massachusetts. On August 06, 2003, he died in a non-hostile incident in United States at the age of 35. Larry Gene Amburgey Jr. was the kind of guy you loved having around, his wife, Jenny, said. He liked to stay home and do the chores everyone else hated, like cleaning and yard work, and he thought nothing of whipping up a Mexican dinner for his wife and whoever else was there. On their first Valentine’s Day as newlyweds this year, the Army staff sergeant showered Jenny with 23 presents. He kept fresh flowers for her in the living room, buying new ones every week. “If they started to die, he would say he was failing at his job,” said Jenny, 40, his wife of 11 months.
