Larry was a man of profound character; he was kind, generous, thoughtful, fun loving, a man of strong values and deep faith in the Lord. He served proudly in the United States Army before marrying Constance L. Halverson on June 15, 1969. Larry was a beloved High School Theology teacher at St. Joseph High School in Kenosha, WI where he impacted the lives of students for 30 years.
After retiring he held Bible study classes for adults and became interested in genealogy, researching and putting together genealogy books for members of his extended family. In his spare time, Larry loved to read; he always had one book of fiction and one book of theology or nonfiction that he read simultaneously. He was also a doting grandfather and father who enjoyed being a fun-loving grandfather with the best rice crispy treats recipe around. Larry will be greatly missed by his loving family and many friends.
