Larry was called to heaven on October 20, 2023.  Larry was born on August 10, 1955, in Omaha, Nebraska, one of three children born to Clement and Neva.  Larry was preceded in death by his parents, Clement and Neva; brother, Eugene.  He is survived by his wife, Linda; sister, Mara; and other loving family members.

Larry grew up in Omaha and graduated from Creighton Prep High School in 1973, and from the University of Nebraska at Omaha with a degree in Engineering Technology. He loved using that knowledge to start his own business, designing homes, and readily jumped at the opportunity to help others with their remodeling projects.

He enjoyed golfing, scuba diving, snow skiing, bowling, and hunting.  He was an avid car enthusiast and his very first car was a 1937 Ford which he completely restored and is still in his garage.  He loved helping his friends with car restoration projects.

Larry started dating his soul mate, Linda, in 1976, and they were married in 1986.  They did everything together and especially enjoyed their tropical vacations with friends and family.

    Larry was a great person to get to know and be around. We are truly blessed to be able to say that some of our time was spent being around him. We are very saddened about his departure from his life on earth. Our prayers at this time will be with Linda and the rest of his family.

    Linda and family,
    I was deeply saddened to hear the news about Larry..
    He was such a character and strong person it is hard to imagine him not being with you.
    So many memories come flooding back to me having grown up in the neighborhood and he was always such a presence. Although time and distance played a hand in our direct contact I was fortunate to have kept up with Larry’s projects and adventures through communications with Linda. He was passionately committed to his loves and his ideals. He lived life, loved completely and fought bravely. He maintained those qualities throughout his life and with Linda by his side every step of the way. He will be missed…My sincerely condolences to his friends and family.
