Larry Owen Curry, the son of Owen Peter and Darlene Mae (Mitsven) Curry, was born September 30, 1952, Algona, IA. He graduated LuVerne High School in 1970.
On December 29, 1970, he was united in marriage to Linda Bleuer in West Bend, IA. The couple lived in the LuVerne area, where Larry continued to farm with his dad and brother on the family farm. Together he and Linda raised two children and he enjoyed his community and raising his family there.
Larry enjoyed being outside, working in his vegetable garden, planting various plants and flowers around the house and tending to his not so productive fruit trees. He was an enthusiastic Iowa Hawkeye fan, a Jimmy Johnson NASCAR fan and enjoyed Casino trips with Linda. When he was younger, Larry also enjoyed fishing and hunting. Most of all he loved being around his grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Larry Curry’s fight with cancer ended on Wednesday, June 14, 2017, at the Kossuth Regional Health Center with his loving family at his side. He was 64 years old.
