Coach Schreiber was a tremendous role model to me. I saw in him humility, excellence, joy, and love. I felt like he got me to excel beyond my own expectations without causing me to dread it nor to think more of myself than I aught. He showed the same heart towards me whether I succeeded or failed. Coach is one of the people who serves as evidence to me of the reality of the heart of God.

I am so sad to hear of his passing and grieve with his family at their loss.

Our deepest sympathy and heartfelt prayers with the death of your precious husband, father, and grandfather. Larry was a kind, loving soul everyone loved and will be missed by all who knew him. We became acquainted with him when he taught our kids drivers education. They loved him as he was thorough and fun. We are so sad for you, but rejoice he is with his Lord. Our love & prayers, Stan & Gail Ferris

My deepest sympathy to Linda, Deanna, and all family members of Larry. So many good memories of growing up as next door neighbor kids on 11th Street in Grand Island.
