Lawrence Frank Anderson was born 2-19-1941 in Great Bend, KS to Alma Lea and Jack W Anderson and was taken from us in a trageic accident on 10-29-2014 in Navarre,Fl.

His mother, Alma Lea, sister, Carol Lea and step father, Bud Mather moved to Canon City in 1951. His friends nicknamed him Andy. After graduating from Canon City High School in 1959 he went to Denver University on a basketball scholarship. In late 1960 he joined the Army and was stationed at the Presidio Language Institute in Monterey, CA where he was a Korean Linguist.

He married LaFon (Inky Smith) formerly of Canon City while still in the service and had a daughter Tawn Rene.

Following the military he attended San Jose State in San Jose, CA where he received a Masters in Business Administration. He started his career out with IBM in Palo Alto,CA but learned early on that he was an independent thinker and didn't quite fit the mold. He went out on his own and was a successful Business Consultant and Construction Contractor.

In 2004 Larry retired and he and LaFon moved to Texas to do some traveling and watch their grandsons grow. Mike, Andy, and Mark were his pride and joy - he beamed watching them play their sports. He was their Papa.

He always had a pen and paper to write down his ideas; and he had many. He was a regular at Whataburger and Panorama Village Golf course. He had distinguished white hair, a big smile, and his motto was always Be Positive.

He left a wife of 52 years, LaFon, a daughter, Tawn Richardson, and three grandson's Mike, Andy, Mark all of Conroe, TX. His sister, Carol Lea and brother in law, Jerry Wagner, and their family of Spokane,WA, in addition to many other family members and friends.

There will be an informal gathering at the home of Tawny Richardson at 405 Shadywood Circle, Conroe, TX. His ashes will be scattered at some of his favorite beaches and golf courses. We feel he is at peace and there to guide us from above.
