Larry served in the Army/National Guard and specialized in mechanics. He worked as maintenance technician for Blanke Plastics in Hermann, Missouri, Canam Steel and Tradco in Washington, Missouri, with Eugene Jacquin wood logging, building and installing wood furnaces, and a truck driver throughout the states.
Larry's biggest enjoyment was always helping others, whether you were a family friend or a stranger broke down on the side of the road. He loved being outdoors; going on camping rendezvous and gardening with his friend Ruth, maintaining his property, and repairing his yard equipment. And most importantly, he loved spending time with his family...especially his grandchildren. He worked hard to create a special, fun hangout by his lake for his family and friends to enjoy. He was always out there making improvements and add-ons. Larry was the kind of person that never knew a stranger and would have done anything for anyone in need.
