Larry was the owner of Harmeyer Drywall, retiring in 2002. He had an amazing voice and talent for music. Everyone loved listening to him sing. His true passion and love of his life was his family. Larry met Mae when she was 12 years old. They raised a caring and loving family together. The last 12 years of his life were spent as Pop. This role fit him perfectly, and he was the most amazing grandpa, with many days filled with tea parties, board games, and never missing any of his granddaughters sporting events, where you could always find him cheering loudly. His passion and love for his family is evident and continues through the love they all share for each other. He was a great role model for all of his family and will always be our HERO.
