The Purcellville Town Council last week honored Dr. Larry P. Belote for his 36 years serving the town through his medical practice. Having recently retired, Belote accepted the honor on behalf of the physicians that came before him.
“I never expected anything like this would ever happen in my career,” he said. “This really makes a statement about the town—the Town of Purcellville cares about their medical community.”
Belote graduated from Hampden-Sydney College in 1971 with a bachelor’s degree in physics and, after serving as an officer in the U.S. Navy for three years, graduated from the Medical College of Virginia. Belote set up his medical practice in Purcellville in 1983 and previously worked at Graydon Manor near Leesburg for 13 years and as the team physician for Loudoun Valley High School for two decades.
“Thank you for your years of dedicated service to this community,” said Mayor Kwasi Fraser.
