Very proud Papa of Heather (Mitja) Schnackenberg, Nathan (Bryer) Jones, Jenni (Paul) Carter, Melissa (John) Vangameren, Melanie (Steve) Joves, Nick (Natalia) Jones, Jay Jones and Isabelle Jones.

Larry retired from Chrysler after 30 years of service. He enjoyed golfing, hockey, baseball, woodworking, and watching his family grow and enjoy their lives. As a devoted Papa, he never missed his grandkids’ sporting events where he could be found cheering them on. Larry also loved working around the house and yard, always keeping busy. He would help his children and grandchildren with odd jobs whenever needed. JoAnne and Larry loved staying active by walking and bike riding together. They also enjoyed their time spent in Florida over the years.

In lieu of flowers, donations made to the Hospice of Windsor would be greatly appreciated by the family.
