Not sure what to say?

It was my distinct pleasure to know Larry as a guiding force behind the construction of the Twin Cities Shriners Hospital. I feel very privileged to have served under his leadership on the Board of Governors for the hospital. He was an extraordinary leader and mentor. I truly appreciated his friendship.

I'M SORRY TO HERE OF THE PASSING OF LAWRENCE. HE WAS A VERY NICE MAN AND BOSS TO MOST OF MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS. MY DAD EDWARD DEHN SR WORK FOR HIM ABOUT 35YRS,MY BROTHER EDWARD DEHN JR, MY COUSIN TOM LEGACY AND MANY MORE. LAWRENCE ATTENDED MY DAD FUNNERL AND THAT WAS THE LAST TIME I GOT TO TALK TO HIM. WE WILL ALL TRULY MISS HIS KINDNESS AND THE WONDERFUL MAN HE WAS.

Larry truly was an officer and a gentleman. I knew him to be a generous and well respected leader of the community as a whole, though my connections were primarily through the 8th Air Force Association, where he was admired and respected for his leadership, warm smile and generosity. Larry embodied what was best in our "Greatest Generation". He will be sorely missed.

I always cherished my time with Larry, his generosity and love of aviation inspired all who met and knew him. I will deeply miss my dear friend who “Has Flown West”…

















My WWII Father passed away in May - they are now together again so soon, They always made a point to talk on Wed and now they talk again so soon. God Bless Larry - a very special gift to us.

If you wanted to describe the phrase, "a class act," all you would have to do is point to Larry Bachman.

He was a powerful influence on the success of the Minnesota Chapter of the 8th Air Force Historical Society.

Loyalty, honesty, friendship and integrity are all lessons that I learned from Larry. I will miss you friend.

Keep flying your Liberator on "the step" in the loving hands of our Lord.

My father Ray Rau became friends with Larry through the 8th Airforce Historical Society of MN. He always held Larry in such high regard and on the few occasions I met Larry myself at club meetings I had to agree. Larry was a true gentleman with a sweet spirit and generous heart who will be deeply missed.

Dale:
Bless you in this time.
I appreciate all that you family gives to this great country.
Thank you for who you are.

To Dale, Ruth and Lee Bachman and their families,
We are so sorry to learn of Larry's passing. It was fun seeing him last Nov at the Employee Open House and Santa Night. He was so great about coming to all the Bachman's Employees' Club events including the Winter Warm-up and even pitching in to help when he and Louise would arrive early. It is hard to believe he retired 25 years ago in 1988, as he was still so much a part of the company. With Sincere Sympathy, Bachman's Treasury...
