Larry attended Olivet Nazarene College in Kankakee, Illinois. He was a certiﬁed carpenter and was employed as a Master Carpenter at Ford Motor Co., with headquarters in Dearborn, MI. He was a “jack of all trades” and could ﬁx anything. (He learned that as a child growing up by taking apart every toy he was ever given… just to see “how it works”.
Larry loved God and his family. Enjoyed guns, motorcycles, and taking apart motors. One time he purchased a riding mower that was sold in parts at a garage sale for practically nothing. He brought it home in cardboard boxes and in a few weeks had it all put together and running. He helped many by his building skills and his ability to ﬁx cars. He involved himself in the study of God’s Word and desired to become what God wanted him to be.
A Memorial Service will be held on May 25 at the First Baptist Church of Fowlerville, 214 S. Grand Ave., Fowlerville, MI at 11 a.m. A luncheon will follow in the Fellowship Hall. All relatives and friends are welcome to attend.
