Wilfred Pinter Large

Wilfred Pinter Large, 94, of Virginia Beach, passed away Friday, Feb. 21, 2020, surrounded by his family.

He is survived by his wife of 71 years, Carole; four children, Charnell Thomas, Lance Large, Jana Kuenzli and Brian Large; along with 14 grandchildren and 24 great-grandchildren; and two brothers, Donald and Alfred.

Wilfred grew up in Virginia Beach, formerly Princess Anne County, and was founder and owner of Wilfred P. Large, Land Surveying and Engineering, now known as WPL. WPL has been in business for 60 years.

Wilfred was a decorated World War II Army Infantryman. He impacted the lives of all that came into contact with him. His deep love of God, family, church and others were his driving passions. His family will miss him deeply. Wilfred’s greatest dedication was to Jesus Christ. We rest in the assurance that “to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.”
