Larry, you will definitely be missed by many who loved who you were and how you cared for others. I am very proud to have known you.
You touched the lives of thousands of hospitalized and homeless Veterans through the generosity of your time and work for others. No one could outdo you for that.
Thank you Larry Prososki. You will never be forgotten.
Thank you for your military service.
Rest in Peace Brother.

What can I say? The man had an appetite and I know he loved carrots! He would take my Mom Nancy Woog and I out to Old Country Buffet and treat us to great company and a full belly.
His life-long dedication to service inspires me most. He continued after retirement to support and defend military and families.
I appreciate the lengths he went to provide military funeral honors for my Grandfather John Woog. Rest in peace. Jason Butler

Larry and I both stood as bestman and bridesmaid for my sister Patty and Gary's wedding 50 yrs ago.
You may be gone but not forgotten. You were a very kind and generous person. You looked after people, places, and your fellow man. Thank you for your military service. Rest in peace. Nancy Woog

Uncle Larry,
I will always remember all of the Holidays spent with our family you and Joan. Than with out her. It was our pleasure having you there. I am so very proud of all of the selfless work that you did for the V.A. hospitals. I loved visiting with you to Battle creek V.A. I know that it was very dear to your heart as it was to ours, being that both sides of my family was military. You will leave behind some very big shoes to fill. You were extremely generous in all of your efforts to help people . You will be greatly missed by many. Love, Christie ♡

I enjoyed the fact that Uncle Larry (I called him my Uncle) gifted me many Military pins and a flight jacket that fit me with my own patches. I believe he gave me these things, so I could have something to remember him by.

Uncle Larry would request to sit next to me at our family gathers that we had here in Michigan.

Thank you for everything you did for me.

When I was a little girl, Uncle Larry came down to Texas to visit us one year. It was after school, the bell rang and students were released to go home. I waited outside at the pickup line. Here comes Uncle Larry wearing dark aviator glasses, driving his drop-top CONVERTABLE to pick ME up! I was ecstatic! I thought I was the coolest kid, getting into his car. It was a rare treat and something we would bring up over the years.

Uncle Larry, we love you and you will be missed. Rest easy.

The last time I seen Larry was two days before Christmas 2020...He loved oatmeal cookies ( without raisens please )...so I baked him four dozen and drove an hour away to deliver them in person..Then when he was able to drive to our house before his sight went bad he always brought me the biggest can of coffee he could find...I have many fond memories of you Larry, you were a very sweet brother in law...Fly high with the wind below your wings

The last time I seen Uncle Larry was when he was here in Texas visiting. He went to the country western bar with me. I can hear him now saying “Oh is that right”. He was a great Uncle who unfortunately after my grandparents died I didn’t see anymore. I know he was dedicated to helping the Veterans and it gave him much pride and happiness. I hope your smiling and visiting with grandma and grandpa. Love Terry
