Larry Froemming was born on March 29, 1951 in Alexandria, MN to Donald and Leila Ann (Zwieg) Froemming. He spent many summers there helping his uncle Darold on the family farm. He grew up in Hopkins, MN and later joined the U.S. Army. He married Cynthia and together they had a son, Shane. They lived in Texas until Larry got out of the service. They then moved back to Minnesota and shortly after that they divorced. Larry went on with his life raising Shane. He worked at Control Data in their paint department until that plant closed. At that point in time he worked in several different positions and places. Larry eventually found his way to E.P.C. in Mora, working in their paint department. Later he became the supervisor of three different departments. He worked there until his health would no longer allow him to work. Larry and Carol married on May 30, 1991. Their two families became one; which truly brought much happiness to each of them.
Larry has suffered with major health issues throughout the duration of his life. Life was not easy for him. He fought on to continue his journey but his battle with life finally came to a close. He is now free of his earthy burdens in a way none of us can imagine. He will be greatly missed by his family and all who came in contact with him in his lifetime.
Larry was preceded in death by his father Donald, mother Leila; and uncle Darold.
