He married Kathleen Frost in 1971 at St Patrick’s Catholic Church in Cedar Falls; they later divorced. Larry was a dedicated cyclist, riding in Iowa’s Ragbrai and Colorado’s Ride the Rockies many times over the years. He was an active member of Rainbow Cyclists bike club and helped to create the “Frank Family” group of cyclists in Cedar Falls.

He married Sandra Austin in 2001 at Faith Lutheran Church in Castle Rock, CO. Larry retired from Qwest in 2009 after 37 years of employment. After retirement, Larry volunteered his services at Faith Lutheran Church and Pioneer Elementary School. He was a devoted supporter and Den leader for Pack 369 of the Boy Scouts of America, and self appointed “Big Kahoona” of the “Bearlily Way Gang” watching over the children in the neighborhood to keep them safe and happy.
