Larry was born Ogden Utah on June 16, 1949 to Charles Dean Holmes and Alvina Maser. He passed away in his sleep on November 8, 2021.\n\nHe was raised in Sunset UT where he enjoyed disassembling and fixing mechanical and electronic components from a very young age. This would later define his career. He attended Clearfield High School and enjoyed playing basketball in his teenage years. He spent many hours playing at the local ward building, though he was not yet a member of the Church. He was eventually invited to meet with missionaries from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and was baptized into the Church at age 18. He decided to serve a mission for the Church one year later and was called to the California Central mission. Shortly after completing his mission, he began to court his future wife Sherrie Amundson, and they were married on the Oakland CA temple on June 19, 1970.\n\nLarry graduated from Brigham Young University with a bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering. He would later start his own engineering company where he designed computer peripherals. He was a lifelong fan of BYU football and Utah Jazz basketball. He later developed a love of woodworking and carving and had many tools. He had impeccable penmanship and could produce beautiful writing and calligraphy. He was also a poet and would periodically produce some true gems. He would occasionally write his letters in prose, sometimes profound and other times silly.\n\nHe had a great sense of humor and loved comedic movies and TV shows. When the grandkids came to visit, they would often gravitate to his chair where they could watch kids shows on his lap while eating treats with him.\n\nLarry is survived by his loving and devoted wife Sherrie, as well as children Jason (Carmen), Michael (Cortney), Kevin (Stacy), and Erin (Kory) Anderson, as well as 15 grandchildren and one sister Diana (Mike) Whiting. He was preceded in death by his youngest son Scott, as well as his parents Dean and Vi, his brother Robert, and his sister Karen.\n\nFuneral services will be held at the Riverdale 2nd Ward, located at 5500 S. 1175 W, Riverdale UT on Monday, November 15, 2021.
