He was raised on the family farm near Baker, Montana until the family moved to Billings. Born with cerebral palsy, Larry faced many challenges in life but it never stopped him from forging ahead and loving life. He loved his family most of all and was cared for by them till no longer possible. He then spent his final years being cared for by the wonderful staff at Bella Terra Care Facility.
Some of Larry’s other loves in life were new cars, especially trucks, church, and being one of the guys. He was so excited when someone would get a new vehicle. If it was a truck, he would spend hours inspecting it. Given the choice, he would always choose a truck over a car to ride in. His favorite place to go in said truck was church. He was raised in church from the time he was born. He enjoyed listening to the pastor’s sermons, the music and fellowship. Above all else, Larry enjoyed being one of the guys. He enjoyed watching guys work. It could be home projects or mechanic work it didn’t matter. You could always find him watching to see how the job was being done. And when guys were sitting around having guy talk, Larry would be there listening and laughing along.
If you were fortunate enough to have known Larry, you were truly blessed! He was a kind, gentle and loving soul. He radiated God’s love. The world will not be the same without him in it!
Larry was preceded in death by his parents, brother Darrel Kramlick, twin sister Lila Paulson, brother-in-law Richard McClintock and nephew Kirk Wuest. He is survived by his sister Jane McClintock, sister-in-law Gale Kramlick and sister and brother-in-law Ron and Sharon Wuest, along with many nieces and nephews.
No services are planned at this time due to COVID. Smith Downtown Chapel is assisting with cremation.
