Join us in the celebration of the life of Larry Keith Schwerzler Sr. Larry was born on October 6, 1951 to parents Raymond T. and Dorothy J. (Dodge) Schwerzler in Tacoma, Washington. Larry spent his youth raised with love by his parents with siblings Linda (Dan) Thompson, Sandra (Jim) Schnase, Randy (Terri) Schwerzler, Tom (Lisa) Schwerzler, and Kari (Chris) McCloud. Larry graduated from Franklin Pierce high school in Tacoma in 1970.
Larry joined the army and served his country in Europe proudly during the Vietnam War.
Larry had a lifelong passion as a sportsman returning season after season to his love of hunting and fishing. It was through these activities that Larry made many of the friendships that would last him through his life. He always looked forward to the next chance to get back into the woods or back on the water with his friends and family.
Through his life Larry held many jobs, but he loved most being a handy man. As many can attest he could fix just about anything. He loved his work and you could always tell he was happy if you heard him humming away to himself as he helped others.
Larry was a good friend to have, and someone you could count on when you needed him to be there. Always willing to help out others or give advice his companionship will truly be missed.
Larry passed away suddenly due to heart complications on the morning of November 7, 2010 at hunting camp. His loss is mourned by his surviving son Larry Jr, brother Randy Schwerzler, and sisters Kari McCloud and Linda Thompson as well as the many friends and extended family who were blessed to have Larry in their lives. Larry was preceded in death by his parents Ray Schwerzler and Dorothy Schwerzler, brother Tom Schwerzler, and sister Sandra Schnase. Services are tentatively scheduled for December 4, 2010 location to be determined.
