Larry Dean Pounds went to his eternal home on Thursday, February 26,

Larry was born on May 3, 1938 in Brewster, Kansas to Andy Lincoln and

Kansas and farmed with his father, Andy.

Colorado in 1966, where Larry was known by so many and lived until the
time of his passing. Larry bought the John Deere Dealership with his

pride into his work. Larry owned the dealership from 1966 until 2008,

of his own in the 1990s.
