He was predeceased by son, Wayne, wife, Audree, granddaughter, Isabella and brother, John. He is survived by children: Annette Hopkins, Vicki Lien, Melisa Nelson, and Alexis Hopkins; seven grand children, two great grand children; one brother and three sisters.

My deepest sympathies for your unexpected loss. Larry was a kind and compassionate father, with a brilliant mind and quiet, thoughtful peace about him. I will remember him fondly, knowing his love for Audree and all of his children made him complete, needed, and fulfilled. Prayers and peaceful days filled with good memories are my wish for my friend, Melisa, her children, and all of Larrys family and friends.
