Dr. Phillip Lawrence “Larry” Nally, 84, of Bardstown, passed away Monday December 17, 2018 at Franciscan Health Care Center in Louisville. He was born November 18, 1934 in Fredericktown, graduated from St. Joe Prep, and stated that the principles he learned at St. Joe Prep helped him throughout life, and later became president of St. Joe Prep Alumni. He attended Dayton University, then left to join the United States Army. It was on a dental checkup at Tripler Army Hospital, that the dentist exclaimed “look at those long fingers, you’ve got to be a dentist”. Larry then decided to attend Bellarmine College Pre-Dental and graduated in June 1962 from Dental School. He practiced dentistry for 37 years in Bardstown. Dr. Nally had a gift of making candy and his bourbon fudge is marketed through the Monks at Gethsemani, where it is their best seller. He is a member of Kiwanis Club, and St. Joseph Catholic Church.
