Dale Lawrence Sichmeller was born at a very young age on May 20, 1945 to Lawrence and Irene (Breske) Sichmeller. During baptism, the priest renamed him to Lawrence Dale, so began the journey of Larry’s life. He was raised on the farm southeast of Roslyn with his siblings, Judy and Chuck. He attended school in Roslyn graduating in 1963. He joined the Army National Guard in 1963 and was a member of the Grenville Legion. He spent his life working construction, being a lineman and farmer/rancher. He moved to Montana in 1985 working the line crew for W.A.P.A. There he got his beloved mules and met his future wife. He said, mules aren’t stubborn, but never said that about his wife. 1994 brought them back to the home place where he got back into cattle and haying. Around 2005 Larry decided to retire and started renting out the pastures and farmland. He still helped during harvest and put up some hay every year. In his earlier years he enjoyed hunting and fishing as well as riding those mules and his horses. He had a way with animals and had some pretty good dogs (one who is quite famous in "Roslyn Lore").
Larry passed away December 5, 2020, 108 days after being diagnosed with Liver disease.
Survived by wife Myrna, sister Judy Haase, brother Chuck (Gloria) Sichmeller, in-laws Anita (Jim) Mayes, James (Leslie) Kallem, Nancy (Danny) McCoy, and aunt Rosemary Gaikowski. Seven nephews, three nieces, 22 great nephews and nieces. several cousins and lots of great friends. Preceded in death by his parents, grandparents, in-laws Arlo Haase and Bud and Toots Thievin, many aunts, uncles and cousins and friends.
Larry lived a good, honest life. A wise man once said (lots more than once) “Ah hell, no doubt in my military mind, its time to go”.
