My prayers are with Larry's family. He was a very nice man and great to be around when I would go out to David and Sandy Wagner's family when I was younger and would babysit there kids. I was not use to the farm but was enjoying the fresh air and being outside and Larry would show me around the farm along with his mom Lois. She was such a lovlely lady. God Bless The Wagner family during this difficult time and may the Good lord be with you all each day during this difficult time. Amen ...

I’ve only known Larry and Connie and family since around 2008. I worked with Larry at Northland from then until he retired. He left a lasting impression and I will be thinking of you all on this day. May the Lord be with you and guide you through this time of grief.

Part of the goodness and joy of gaining Steve and Londa and the boys as our "St. Cloud Family" was getting to know Larry and Connie and their children and grandchildren. Memories of gathering with the large and loving Wagner family will long stay with us. May all be comforted by the good life Larry shared. We share our assurance of peace and love to lift and carry you through.
