July 23, 1939 October 26, 2017Larry was born in Ft. Worth, Texas to Lawrence and Mabel Stothoff. His parents moved to California when he was two years old. They settled in Long Beach, where he attended school, graduating from Polytechnic High School in 1957. He was involved in many swimming activities, winning many medals. He was a member of the fraternity Comus.
Larry met the love of his life Suzanne Frett, where they were together and married for 60 years.
He worked in the tire business in Long Beach for several years before he was recruited to Oregon by Les Schwab himself. After working for him for some time, he and Suzy decided to stay in Albany rather than move again to raise their five children. He then went to work for Tele Dyne Wah Chang, where he retired after 29 years.
He was very involved in all his children’s activities; football, basketball, wrestling, cheerleading, cross country and track. He loved his grandchildren, finding joy after retirement volunteering at Clover Ridge School, where all called him Grandpa. He enjoyed visiting with the volunteers and the people at St. Mary’s Soup Kitchen, where Suzy was the director for twenty years.
He was a true history buff, interested especially in anything that had to do with World War II.
He loved Central Oregon. He and Suzy built their retirement home ten years ago at Crooked River Ranch.
Larry passed away after a long battle with Alzheimer’s with his loving family by his side.
He is survived by wife, Suzy; sons Dexter and Dennis; daughters Sandi (Justin) Gordon and Sue Sue (Mark) Bangs; grandchildren, Dusten, Dain, Nicole, Sydney, Isabella, Sam, Scotty and Suzi; great grandchildren, Hayli, Cameron and Isaac; and friends Kevin Bryne and Tim Ysen, who were like sons to him.
He was preceded in death by son Scott; and grandson, Tanner.
The family would like to thank the staff at the Memory Care Center for their kindness and loving care given to Larry and our family.
At his request, there will be no service. There will be a celebration of life next summer with family and friends.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be sent to St. Mary’s Soup Kitchen or to hospice.
We will miss you husband, Dad, Grandpa and Great Grandpa.
