"Oh Shaw, Oh Golly”, I think that was how he said it. For whatever reason I am reminded of Uncle Larry using that expression often when I had chance to interact with him as an older man. While the actual definition of that short phrase eludes me, it is an expression that, in many ways, epitomizes his nature ... "Oh Saw, Oh Golly" a wonderment in all of God's creations.

My favorite memories are the days the family lived in Union, Nebraska. We were all a lot younger then and that house was such a cool place. There was the huge porch on the front and a great yard with a barn. It was such fun enjoying the holidays there with all of the cousins. They lived in another house near there surrounded by farm land a bit later when Cathy and Theresa came to the family. I remember picking beans with a two high school friends one summer for a couple of weeks. Uncle Larry took such joy in nature and I fondly remember how happy he was having us help on the farm. The farm property he inherited from Pop and Gram in Iowa, and the school house in Anthon, were treasures of his. So too were his children

He and Irene are responsible for 8 kids, 20 grandkids (with at least one more on the way as I understand it) and 4 great grandchildren (of which there will be many more). What a remarkable collection of talents that have been raised in the Catholic faith and been given such an opportunity to succeed. Aunt Irene was obviously instrumental in what they created and I know we all miss her too.

Uncle Larry was very kind in staying in touch with me after I moved to Washington State. He talked about coming for a visit. He always asked about Robyn and our kids. He was pleased to continue that connection with more regular calls after my father passed in 2019 and I was very grateful that he did.

Uncle Larry and my father, his brother, Pat, were both very religious, but that is where the similarities ceased. As I am sure happens in many sibling relationships they seemed to grow closer toward the end. It is comforting to know that they are now together, with their parents, their spouses and their sibling. Larry and Pat's appreciation for, and devotion to, the wonders of God are now their peace ... Oh Shaw, Oh Golly.

I love you Uncle Larry, Tim

Such a dear man was your dad....we knew him from his younger days on 41st street and renewed our friendship when his dad moved on JE George. His devotion to his family and kindness to others was like no other person. He surely will have a very special place in heaven Our sympathy to all his family Jackie and john gerard
