Larry has been set free to be with his Lord and Savior.

He was born July 30, 1938, son of the late Henry F. and Marion (Pecnik) Niemuth. Larry attended Sheboygan Falls High School.

For four years he served with the U.S. Army. He was very proud to be a paratrooper while in the Army, serving one year in Germany.

After his discharge from the service, he went to work at Bordens and Kohler.

He married the former Betty Vogel and together they had two sons, Brian and Bruce.

In 1977 Larry met the love of his life, Joanie Fuhrmann, and together they managed the Sandpiper Supper Club in Plymouth. They later owned and operated Larry & Joanie’s Bar in Kiel.

He had been employed at Ameriquip in New Holstein as a supervisor until his health caused him to retire.

Well known for his huge sense of humor, Larry was the life of the party. He touched the many lives of those he knew and will be missed by many.
