Larry was born July 22, 1927 in Kansas City, MO to Joseph and Marguerite Haake. He served honorably in the U.S. Army from 1945-1947. After completing his service, he returned to Bishop Lillis High School and graduated in 1948. Post high school, Larry attended the Kansas City Art Institute. In April of 1951, Larry married a young woman he met at a USO dance, Peggy Lou Quaiatto and they were lovingly married for 64 years until Peggy’s death in May 2015.

Larry was a machinist by trade but an artist by avocation. He painted and sculpted, did photography and wood carving. He designed and built many wood pieces for his family and friends. These pieces included everything from cradles, desks, chairs, and bookshelves, to birdhouses and wonderfully creative paper towel racks.

Larry was preceded in death by his wife, Peggy, his parents, Joseph and Marguerite and his 5 older brothers, Tom, Don, Arnie, Joe, and Wally. He is survived by his 6 children: Larry (Marie), David (Elaine), Mary (Jim D’Antuono), Diane (Bill Pearce), Mark, and Mike (Diana). Larry is also survived by 14 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren.
