  1. Dear Marian & family : we are so saddened to hear of
    Larry’s passing. He was always a smiley, caring & good
    Man. We haven’t seen you in a long time, but we surely
    Miss you both. May GOD give you strength, comfort &
    guidance in the days ahead. Sent with ❤️ love. Ron & LaVonne

  2. I first met Larry working at Muscatell Chevrolet. He was every salesperson’s “go to guy” because you could always count on him finding away to meet our customer’s demands and he never let you down. My father-in-law bought a lake cabin next Larry and Marian which lead to a lot of good times and fond memories with the both of them. Our condolences to his family, you all will be in our thoughts and prayers.

  3. So very sorry to hear. I loved Uncle Larry! Always so kind to me whenever I was with Lori or Sam and Marlene. My deepest sympathies.

  4. Larry was a great guy. I worked with him at Gateway Chevrolet 1984-1985 Until I moved to Arizona in September of 1985. I still remember Larry. I wish the world had a million people like him. He was always helpful and he would tease you when ever he could. A friend I worked with at Gateway sent me his obituary. Sorry for your loss. Funny how you can remember someone years later when you only new them for a few years.

  5. I worked with Larry at Gateway he truly was a wonderful person. I will never forget one evening we traded in a Cadillac Eldorado. Well it was a cold night in January snow was comeing down and here came Larry and Gomer hats on scarfs blowing in the wind top down music play going for a cruise down the street. He was a very special person. Sorry for your loss we was very special.

  6. My thoughts and prayers are with my extended Family at this time of loss. Larry and my Mom, Joyce (Askelson) Bestul were Cousins. Rest in peace Larry.
