I want to extend my condolences to the Sharp family. I am a classmate of Larry and always looked forward to seeing him at class reunions. He was a great guy and will be missed by many of his friends and classmates.

Carol, Julie and Jerry - My sympathies to you all on learning of Larry's passing. It has been almost 30 years since I last saw him. It was around Christmas time, 1988. Larry & Carol were over visiting my parents at our home in Holt. Larry took me under his wing when I was 13, or so. We stacked square bales of alfalfa in the barn, worked feeder pigs many times, went to Polo & Higginsville to hog sales, and attended sprint car races in Odessa at least 3X on Sunday nights. He was such a hard worker, but we visited often during breaks and he always shared the reasons why he did things on his farm or around the house. Larry was a great thinker, builder, communicator, and father-figure. At least twice I did hog chores for your family while you vacationed. He must of had great trust in me, and I never once let him down. Well, one time a boar hog jumped the fence and got into a pen full of sows that were in heat. That was not supposed to happen. He wasn't upset, just kind of laughed. His only reply was, "Well, boys will be boys" referring to the boar. At the age of 15, I was able to understand that remark. It was always a treat working at the Sharp Farm, especially when Ms. Julie would bring out a glass of lemonade and cookies. Larry helped me get started with my own hog project. He picked out a sow for me, and she had 13 pigs, of which I was able to sell each one. Made good money on that group, but he forewarned me that hogs would not always be that good....and he was sure right. He taught me so much. Brings a tear to my eyes now thinking back on all the memories of this humble gentleman. God bless his family, and may he Rest In Peace. Greg Goepferich
