Larry was a long time good friend both personally and with definite business connections as well. Always very pleasant to work with during our business association and after his retirement that friendship remained to this day.

Was indeed a shock to hear of his passing and my best wishes and condolences certainly go to Barb, Haley and the rest of the Meckstroth family.

Barb and Haley,
Dave has known Larry his whole life, growing up as neighbor boys. Larry was Dave's sponsor at Ventura High School, when Larry was a senior and Dave a freshman. Larry has continued to be a friend, visiting us whenever he came to manage the Meckstroth farm, across the road from ours. We will miss him.
Dave and Pat Hansen

Our sincerest sympathy to you Barb, Haley, and Jared for the loss of husband, father grandpa and friend. Words are very inadequate. Please accept our long distance hugs. We enjoyed knowing Larry and Barb these last few years as new and dear friends in Arizona. Will talk soon. Take care and may God's grace give you strength and peace. Love you.

Barb & family, I am so deeply sorry for your loss. Larry was a wonderful man, always with a smile. I have many memories of bowling Friday nights and cookouts from my childhood. He will be truly missed.
