Dion's founder dies

Lawrence "Larry" Dion, founder of Dion's Oil Co., died at 10:15 a.m. Saturday at the age of 91.

He started the family business in Key West in 1948, and now the company owns and operates 12 convenience stores throughout the Florida Keys, Florida City, Homestead and Naranja. The chain is perhaps best known for its fried chicken.

An email from a relative said funeral services and a celebration of life would be held at 1 p.m. April 13 at The Basilica of St. Mary Star of the Sea. No further information was available Saturday night.
