On October 11, 2021, at the age of 79, Larry Stengel lost a valiant battle to survive a tragic accident with all the strength he could muster. Loved and loving husband for 45 years of Renee (Rotstein) Stengel; devoted son of the late Leo and Ann (Linetzky) Stengel; dear brother of Mitchell Stengel (Caroline Walker) and Arthur (Debby) Stengel; treasured brother-in-law of Carol (the late Earl) Arkin; caring cousin, uncle, great-uncle and friend to many.
Underestimated by those who didn't know him well enough but treasured by those who did, he gave so much to so many, often teaching them more than they wanted to know but found worthwhile. Larry shared a deep and special love with Dalia, Angelica and Monica; Nancy, Isabella and Louie; Marco and Maria, Frankie and Domerica, and Veronica and their kids and extended families. He was not just a businessman but a friend to many of his customers.
The family expresses deep appreciation and thanks to his wonderful nurses and staff at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the charity of your choice
