Larry Trumper has no friends because everyone he knew became family.
Larry Edwin Trumper was born to Roma and Fred Trumper on October 5, 1954. He grew up on a Clio, Iowa farm with his siblings David (Elora), Anice (Bill Downs) and Michael (Sharon). He married the love of his life, Kris Sloan on September 9, 1972.
This marriage blessed them with two children, Son, Travis (Traci), grandchildren Jackson, Laine, Ethan, Caleb and Shrae; Daughter, Trisha (Anthony Riccio), grandchildren Anthony III, Angel Baby and Henry.
He was an accomplished businessman and electrician. This took him from Iowa to Kansas and back to Iowa, retiring from Iowa State University February, 2017. While his career was important to him, his love for family, friends and motorcycles were his greatest passion.
On Nov. 30th he started the best ride of his life with his Lord and Savior!
Greeting him in Heaven is his Mother, Father, Sister and many more family and friends.
