Larry Ray LUBENOW Obituary
LUBENOW, Larry Ray

Larry Ray Lubenow, 77, of Cedar Park Texas passed away on Thursday May 8th 2014 after a long and courageous battle. Born in Edinburgh, ND to Alfred and Helen Lubenow, he loved fishing, baseball, family, and the New York Yankees. He attended the University of North Dakota as a journalism major.

Larry joined the US Army serving in Korea, Okinawa, and two tours in Vietnam where he received a Bronze Star. After 10 years of service, he left to pursue his love of public relations and joined a large NY PR firm and provided services for many large clients. In 1985 Larry moved to Austin and later formed his own company.

While serving on Okinawa, he met Vivian Greenhalgh, and they were happily married for over 50 years. He was blessed with 3 children and 6 wonderful grandchildren, the joy of his life. He loved to travel, loved his Yankees, and really loved his Longhorns. He could always be seen in burnt orange. Most of all, Larry loved people. He never met a stranger - just a friend he hadn't met yet. Sunday mornings he would hold court at church, greeting friends and strangers with his ever ready "Hook 'Em."

He is survived by his wife Vivian who has lost her best friend of 50 years; children John (Gloria), Julie (Jim), and Jimm; grandchildren Morgan, Kathryn, Mara (Ryan), Mason, Maggie, and Braxton; and his dear dog Lady.

The funeral will be held Friday May 16th at 1:30 pm at St Thomas More Catholic Church. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Mobile Loaves and Fishes or the Red Cloud Indian School of Pine Ridge ND. Larry will be cremated and his ashes will reside in the St Thomas More columbarium.
