ADD A MEMORY
Karen & John (Behrns) Hutmacher

Uncle Larry was our Mom's little brother. We treasured him as we saw how caring and loving he was with his 3 girls and Carla.

His laughter, his knowledge of our family's history, his love of cards, games, fishing and Notre Dame sports will be always be remembered by us. He had that sparkle in his eye when he told a funny joke or just when he was talking with you.....you felt loved and proud to have his attention.

God bless our uncle. He is with our loved ones in Heaven. May those of us left behind remember these memories as we will miss him greatly. Bye, Uncle Larry, and give all of our family a kiss for John and me. Watch over those you love, and maybe, just maybe, we will see your sparkling grin come our way. God love you.

What a great guy! He was so proud of his girls and loved the Coast Guard. Larry was a great dad, wonderful grandfather and an awesome friend.

I will miss my Uncle Larry dearly! We shared deep conversation to many times of tearful laughter!
I always told him he was my favorite uncle! He'd reply "well that's because yr other uncles are dead!" & I'd reply "Ha ha, I know, that's why u are my favorite one now! " We both would time & time again laugh!
I will cherish our memories forever! 💖
My deepest sympathy, Deb, Linn & Kris. Love you always!
