My condolences. I just found out about Larry's passing in the obit placed in the Mpls Tribune. Larry & I had many good times and moments at Mankato St. In that time of student activism we worked together on many issues. One of my best friends at college.
I am not even sure that Larry would remember me. I met him when he was the President of the government association at Mankato state. We shared the same politics, including involvement in the McGovern campaign. Larry was a very decent person. Talented as a leader, he treated others well. I was touched by the obituary and impressed by all of his accomplishments. My husband died of brain cancer at age 50 so there is a connection there as well. I can imagine the pain that Carola and the children must still be enduring. I wish you the best.
Carola, Sophie and Logan,
I am so sorry to hear of Larry's passing. I've been down in Arizona this winter and just today found out. He'll be missed by so many people, he was a wonderful man. I have a tear in my eye.
Carola, Sophie and Logan,
I am so sorry to hear of Larry's passing. I am thinking of you and hoping that your memories of him and your time together will help comfort you.
With deepest sympathy to the family during your time of grief...God is for you a refuge and strength, A help that is there to be found during difficult times...May God provide you with peace and comfort to endure the days ahead.
Always a smile, even when he was under treatment for a life threatening illness. He was always so proud of his children and their energetic accomplishments.
I will miss him and his smile.
Larry was a class act, generous with a smile, a laugh, a joy for life seldom found in the world today. He booked a few of us young comedians at his bar atop the Senate building. Those were some of my fondest memories of Larry, sitting in the back, laughing, smiling, telling us we were doing great, bad jokes and all. Larry, see you in the big Juneau in the sky, my friend. Juneau was a made a better place because you lived life to its fullest. Rest peacefully, my friend.
While we did not know Larry personally, we know his family. Both his brother Mike and wife Jane, and his parents, have been wonderful friends to us over many years. We send you loving thoughts during this period of grief.
Pat Sjoquist and Dave Odland
My condolences to his family. I always remembered him walking down Main street with his big smile & friendly hearty step! Such a gentleman.
To the Spencer family, I am truly sorry for the loss of your love one. I am sure there are no words that can bring comfort to you. May you be comforted by the scripture at (Jeremiah29:11)
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
My heart goes out to you, Carola
May your family hold on to your fond memories of a loving husband, father and endeared family member. Please know that God is aware of your pain and sorrow. Sincere condolences. Isaiah 65:17
I will always remember and be grateful for Larry's generosity that helped me purchase my first condo at Crow Hill. I am so sorry for your loss.
To Larry's family. I met Larry back when he was doing construction. I worked for the C&B of Juneau Bldg Dept and issued Building permits. I really enjoyed him coming in. He always had a smile, always said hello and very friendly. I pray that the family be comforted from the pain of losing him and that God give you the peace you need to get through this difficult time.
