Larry loved to played softball and was still going strong at 88; he played in tournaments across the United States and in Europe. Larry was dedicated to St. Pascal’s Baylon and the community within his church. He worked at the Farm Credit Bureau Services for 40+ years. Retirement led Larry and Marlene to spend their winter months in Mesa, AZ, where they met their second family and community. Larry spent most of his time volunteering, you could find him cooking hamburgers, making booya, selling Christmas trees, and working the bingo concession stand. He was a huge leader organizing teams to play softball or improving the community. Larry was a great dancer if a polka or waltz was playing, a competitive bowler, and quite the card player.
