Larry Francis Laurent

December 24, 1938 — February 20, 2018

Larry Francis Laurent, 79, of Waterloo, IL, died February 20, 2018, at his residence in Waterloo, IL. He was born December 24, 1938, in Prairie du Rocher, IL.

He is survived by his wife of 59 years, Lola (nee Almand) Laurent; his five daughters Lela Laurent (Scott Topp), Linda Laurent, Loretta Laurent, Lois Gyore (Kevin) and Lisa Schaefer; as well as three grandchildren Jacob Gyore, Katy Gyore and Fritz Schaefer; his brother Stan (Dorothy) Laurent; sisters Leola Robert and Pauline Laurent; & sister-in-law Myrtle Laurent.

He is preceded in death by his parents Elmer & Pearl A. (nee Weigard) Laurent; brother Marvin Laurent; and son-in-law J.R. Schaefer.

Larry enjoyed gardening and traveling. Larry had many wonderful memories spent camping and with the Moonshine Campers Club. He loved his pets Bo, Lucy and Buster, all of whom brought Larry solace in his later years.

Larry was a member of SS Peter & Paul Catholic Church parish, Knights of Columbus - Columbia, IL, St. Louis Silent Club, St. Louis Silent Club Deaf Hall of Fame for Basketball and St. Louis Catholic Deaf Society.

Larry gifted his children with the love of the outdoors and a strong work ethic.

What a gift to fall asleep in your own bed and wake up in heaven.
