Larry J Paulson, age 65. August 26, 1954 to September 21, 2019. Passed away at home surrounded by loved ones after a courageous battle with cancer.
Larry is survived by wife, Laura; sons, Chris and Nick; daughter, Miranda; granddaughters: Mikayla, Paxton and Lynley; brothers: Mike (Kathy), Rod, and Charley; sister, Susie (Curt); and many nieces, nephews, and in-laws. He was preceded in death by parents, Neal and Helen; and sister-in-law, Pam.
Larry graduated from Fremont high school in 1972. After graduation he worked for Valmont as a welder before starting a very successful career in the car business in the late ’70s. Larry had over 30 years of tenure with Huber Automotive in various roles, ending his career as a top performer in Cadillac sales for over a decade.
Larry had a passion for boating and waterskiing and was amazing at “barefoot” skiing. He went on to share his love of the water with his children and grandchildren teaching them how to slalom ski and barefoot. For decades on Friday afternoon in the summer you would find Larry at the Fremont State Lakes with his children, grandchildren and a large group of their friends tubing, skiing and enjoying the water.
Larry was a born car enthusiast and participated several car clubs in his early years. You could hear the passion in his voice when he’d reminisce telling stories about his ’57 Chevy convertible, ’71 Chevelle, ’72 Cuda, several Trans AMs and Cameros and his ’84 Corvette. He was also very proud of his last vehicle, his Escalade ESV.
Larry also enjoyed playing pool, listening to classic rock music, and spending time with family and friends. Clearly, he will be very missed by all who were lucky enough to know and love him.
