He graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Education from Chadron State College. He was a History teacher for one year in Valentine, NE, worked as an Instructor/Director in food service at Northeast Nebraska Technical Community College and at West Baden Indiana campus, and was employed as a Professor in Food Service/Hotel Management at Northwood Institute in Midland, Michigan. He worked in food service at Pfizer Pharmaceuticals before retiring.
Larry loved to travel, visit close friends, ride his bike, and made frequent trips to the library. He was a big Nebraska Husker fan, loved to watch the Simpsons, and was especially fond of Pandas and Llamas. He was an excellent chef and had a warm heart. His favorite quote was “when in doubt, take a nap.”
