Lawrence Schachle Jr., Larry, 64, took off from this world for his next adventure on Sunday, Oct. 8, 2017, peacefully surrounded by his family.
Born to Lawrence and Genevieve Schachle on March 14, 1953, in Anchorage, Alaska, he was the oldest of 10 children and was a true Alaska pioneer He was preceded in death by his father, Lawrence; and his youngest brother, Rob.
He was President of Penn Jersey Drilling/ABC Pump and Well Supply, a family owned business.
Larry loved Alaska, flying his T-craft, blazing trails where there were none. He was part of the team to break the first snowmobile trail from Anchorage to Nome when he was only 18, which later was used for the Iditarod and Iron Dog races. He especially loved the snow, spending time at his cabin and, in recent years, archery. Above all, he loved his family. His life will continue to be celebrated as he lives in the hearts of those who knew him and loved him.
Larry is survived by the love-of-his-life, his wife, Susan; son, Larry and wife Amy; daughter, Jody and husband Yaniv Atzmon; son, Jeremiah and wife Natasha; and his well loved grandchildren, Yael, Maiya, Lauren and Keegan. He is also survived by his mother, Genevieve; sisters, Kathy (Pat) Griffin, Nancy (Craig) Seime, Molly (Dan) Piaskowski, Ginger (Mike) Lachelt and Sally Spicer; brothers, Tim (Darcy), Ted (Valarie) and Tom (Corinna) Schachle; as well as many other family members.
A Celebration of Life will be held later next summer.
In lieu of flowers, a donation may be made in Larry's name to the Cook Inlet Archery Association, P.O. Box 232552, Anchorage, AK 99523, to help support kids archery programs.
