Obituary for Lawrence "Larry" VanDeVere

Lawrence “Larry” Dean VanDeVere was born March 14, 1946 to Edward and Florence (Kaiser) VanDeVere in Lake Benton, Minnesota. He was baptized at St. Genevieve Catholic Church in Lake Benton. He grew up in the Minnesota communities of Cottonwood, Lynd, Marshall, and later Lake Benton. He made his home in Lake Benton and worked in construction of cement silos. He later became a refrigeration mechanic and worked for Carlson Stewart and Schwan’s Company. Larry recently endured a stroke and entered the care of Avera Morningside Heights Nursing Home in Marshall where on Monday, March 19, 2018 he died five days after his 72nd birthday.

Larry enjoyed hunting, trapping, and shooting pistols and black powder rifles. He enjoyed wrenching on anything with motors – Maytag motors, steam engines, tractors, fixing lanterns, etc. Larry will be remembered as a fun grandpa and uncle who really enjoyed playing and making memories with the kids.

Larry is lovingly remembered by his children, Gregory (and Kimberly) Seaton of Garvin, Minnesota, and Debra Seaton of Alexandria, Minnesota; grandchildren, Zachary, Taylor, Tristan, Tucker, Joshua, and Jordan; great-grandchildren, Wyatt, Avery, Piper, and Emma; brother, Michael “Mic” (and Kathi) VanDeVere of Tyler, Minnesota; sisters, Joanne (Fran) Sturm of Minneota, Minnesota, and Pat Gross of Portland, Oregon; and nieces, nephews, family, and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents and a sister, Nancy Enis.

Blessed and eternal be his memory.
