Murrieta - Larry Eugene Clyne passed away peacefully on April 13th, 2021 at home in Murrieta, California.

Larry was born in St. Paul, Minnesota on January 10th, 1949 to Earl Clifford and Barbara (Dyer) Clyne. Larry and his family spent the early part of his life moving from place to place: San Bernardino, Las Vegas and, for a time, Wake Island in the South Pacific.

The family eventually settled in Sparks, Nevada where Larry attended Dilworth Middle, Traner Middle and Sparks High Schools. After high school Larry attended the University of Nevada where he acquired a degree from the School of Engineering. These idyllic school days were full of weekends and afternoons hunting, fishing, playing sports and riding horses and motorcycles with family and friends. All pastimes he would carry happily throughout his life.

In addition to lots of play there was lots of work. Starting with newspaper routes and bucking hay, Larry found his way into surveying and construction like his father with whom he formed E and L Construction. Together, and with Larry's brother Greg, they built many private homes in the Truckee Meadows. Later Larry worked for Q and D Construction as Project Manager and eventually for Loeb Enterprises where he was Construction Supervisor for all of Wingfield Springs and both Red Hawk Golf Courses.

Most importantly on the 4th of July in 1971 Larry met the love of his life, Robyn Munn on the beach at Lake Lahontan. They were married that December at Trinity Episcopal Church in Reno, Nevada. This year marks their 50th of marriage.

Together they had two sons, Joshua Paul and Benjamin Seth.

Larry is preceded in eternity by his father Earl, mother Barbara, brother Earl, Jr., brother Carlo Bianchi and sister Sherry.

He is survived by his wife Robyn, son Josh and his wife Kelly (Clark), son Ben and his wife Heidi (Saban), his brother Greg (wife Janiese) and his brother Rick (husband Jeff), his brother-in-law Wally Johnson, many nieces and nephews and 6 grandchildren: Jaccoa, Iris, Sarenne, Davis, Guthrie and Hollis, who were his greatest joy.

Celebration of life to be held at a future date.

Only met Larry once, over coffee with my friend Robyn. She treasured Larry, and anyone so treasured by Robyn must have been treasured by many others. My heart goes out to Robyn and all of Larry's family.

Greg: So sorry for losing your brother. Larry was a good friend and mentor. Your family, father Earl, big brother Larry and you, Greg,my life long friend, convinced me I wanted to be a Carpenter. We've known each other since first grade at Robert Mitchell, graduated class of 71' from Hug High School. Then on to the Carpenters Apprentice program. Larry was in the background the whole time. His help during the Apprentice contest in 1978 helped me win the state competition and go to Philadelphia Penn. for the International competition. When he worked with you and your father or for Q&D there was always a big grin, one hell of a hand shake and the knowledge that you had just run into an old friend. Rest well my friend. We'll meet again. David Davidow

He was a fine brother protector, confidant, teacher and, most importantly, friend. His humor, lessons and love will be missed, but the memories I will treasure forever. How lucky we were to have him and are to be the family he helped create.
