Larry was born in Sioux City, Iowa on Oct. 3, 1946. He was adopted as a baby by George and Marcella Hermsen. They were the most loving parents a child could have. Larry graduated from Butte High School in 1964.
In 1965 on June 26, he married Roberta Boes from Bonesteel. To this union Lisa was born in 1965, Doug in 1970 and Mindy in 1974. Larry and Roberta were married 57 years.
Larry worked for the Soil Conservation Service for 38 years in Oshkosh, Crawford and then back to Butte in 1978.
He loved the Nebraska Cornhuskers, the Dallas Cowboys, and the Yankees, but most of all watching his children play in sports. He himself loved to play golf and to bowl.
Larry served on the Butte Town Board, worked for the Weather Service out of North Platte and at the Butte Short Stop during his years of retirement.
Larry reaffirmed his salvation in the Lord Jesus Christ before passing. He is in Heaven's Care. No more sickness. No more tears. Oh, how we miss him already!
Larry is survived by his wife Roberta; one daughter Lisa (Devon) of Brandon, FL; one son Doug of Butte; and six grandchildren Trevor Thomas of Tampa, FL, Trenton Robertson and daughter Hazel of Brandon, FL, Jasmine and Jordan Shamberger of Brandon, FL, Holly Hermsen of Denver, CO, and Conner Hermsen of Butte.
He was preceded in death by one daughter Mindy Shamberger in 2011 and one sister Linda Hermsen Hespe in 2021.
