Born January 5, 1940, in South Haven, Michigan, Larry grew up in Benton Harbor Michigan. He graduated from Benton Harbor High School.

He was president and owner of Weygand and Co, an insurance firm and later founded New Millennium Vacations, a guided tour company.

Larry enjoyed a life of travel and culture and always enjoyed researching what was new in Denver, Colorado, and around the world. Most recently, he and his wife Paula ran a travel website, Savvy Travel Decisions, compiling information and pictures for well-known tourist attractions and places locals usually go. Larry was also a well-respected active member of the Lions Club of Denver. Larry grew up a fan of the Chicago White Sox, but became an avid Rockies fan and loved the sport of baseball. He had a wealth of knowledge across many areas and loved to learn about and explore his adopted home of Colorado.

Memories Timeline

Guestbook

  1. Larry was a very intelligent and gregarious individual. He was able to make friends instantly with everyone he met. He had a very witty sense of humor and was a joy to be around. He will be greatly missed by his friends and family, but especially by his devoted wife, Paula. I pray that the Lord will comfort you, Paula, Chad and Georgina.

  2. Larry, you are and will be so sorely missed. I did not get to know you for long, but I’m glad I got the time with you. Our friendly banter, our chats about baseball, and your humor are missed.

  3. May God help your family through this time of sorrow.
    Anytime I was around Larry and Paula, Larry was always smiling, he sure liked to talk a lot. You know how some people you don’t know really well have pauses in there talking not Larry, he kept it interesting and makes you laugh. The last time I talked to Larry was when he was in the hospital the night before he had the surgery on his foot. We talked for over 2 hours about one thing to another, but what he talked about the most was his love for his wife Paula and wanted to go home because she needed him.

  4. My deepest condolences to the friends and family of the Larry. May your treasured memories bring you joy, and may ‘the God of all comfort’ give you strength, along with a measure of peace for your grieving hearts at this most difficult time.
    2Cor 1:3
