Larry’s childhood was spent on the family farm and after high school he enlisted in the Army. He served from 1959 to 1962.

In 1970, he would marry Donna Langman and together they welcomed two daughters; Kris and Lori. They spent 52 years of their lives together.

In later years, he loved watching NASCAR, the Packers, and the Brewers. He enjoyed being busy. Whether it was the big builds or the small odds and ends jobs, he did it all.
