LOTS of great memories! You will be truly missed by many! Mikka Owen Mikka Owen, December 6, 2021 My memories of Larry are of him with my father Clifford. Larry and Clifford would spend the afternoon in our garage, talking and laughing through each other’s problems and triumphs. When I was young I wanted to be a part of that “group”... and of course, I learned quickly that it took more than walking in the room to be considered one of “The Guys”. That bond between them was very strong.... and as I grew older, I think maybe Larry let me in that circle. I love you Larry and already miss being able to shake your hand. - Dustin Hendricks Dustin Hendricks, December 5, 2021 Clifford and I were devastated to hear the news. So very sorry for your entire family, especially for those grandkids he bragged about and loved so very much! Clifford and Larry grew up together, and Clifford considered him as his birthday buddy as they shared the same birth date, wishing each other a happy birthday each year. We will always remember him especially on that day. He was such a charismatic person and will be missed by all dearly. Clifford and I both have this coughing croup that is going around, so we are sad that we will be unable to attend the service, but we will be with you in spirit and prayers watching live stream. Our thoughts and prayers are yours, Clifford and Jackie Hendricks And family. Clifford and Jackie Hendricks, December 5, 2021 So very sorry to hear this. Praying for all his family at this time. I have happy memories of the Beaty family growing up in Westminster. My heart goes out to his wife, children and especially the grandchildren.

Doyle Nelson, December 4, 2021 Chris, I know there are no words to say that you haven't heard. But God sent the Holy Spirit to comfort our hurting hearts. John 14, tells us that God has prepared a mansion for us and will come back and get us to forever be with Him. Chris, your dad is experiencing all the glories of Heaven and it won't be long we will join him. Weeping only endures for a night, but joy comes in the morning.
Carol Clary, December 3, 2021 So very sorry for your loss. May the coming days bring you peace and comfort. Paulla Mabry, December 2, 2021
