Larry was always selfless, sacrificing his own comfort for others. He was patient, kind and put others first. He provided for his family of five and gave his time generously. He loved to research family genealogy and pass on legacies. He loved being out in nature and surrounded by his kids, grandkids and extended family. He loved retirement years and spending time with family on the boat on beautiful Klinger Lake in Michigan. Larry liked trivial puzzles and loved figuring out electronic gadgets. He was always very creative and enjoyed building and creating new inventions and telling everyone how he did it. His family & friends used to laugh & lovingly tease him about his “innovative” ways. He will be greatly missed.

Due to the COVID 19 Pandemic; services and interment for Larry will be private at both the funeral home and at Pleasant Hill Cemetery in Frankfort. In lieu of flowers, donations to a charity of your choice would be greatly appreciated. For information, or 815-806-2225.
