  • We love Larry and all of you. Sending heartfelt payers your way

  • Sweet Jo,
    So sorry for your loss. You are in my prayers. Much love, Bonnie

  • Bill and Laurie Guffey

    So sorry to hear of your loss Jo. What a great obituary for us that didn’t know him. He sounds like a great guy but I wouldn’t expect anything else being married to such a great wife. Love you Jo (baggie😉)

    It has been years since we’ve seen anyone from your family. But your family left a huge impression on us even after 25 + years. Larry was truly a kind gentle man. The perfect neighbor. The dedicated councilor at church. The patient father. The honest clerk. The soft spoken example. I’m sorry he passed on already, especially at Christmas. It seems too young but maybe he had been ill??? I hope you can have a wonderful celebration of his life surrounded by your family.

  • We are so sorry for your loss. He was a great man and helped in raising a great family. Our prayers are with you

  • Mar June Scheier

    We love your family and will miss Larry. We are grateful for the knowledge we’ll see him again. May you all feel Heavenly Fathers love and peace. Wish we could be there in person. We will be there in spirit.
