After graduation he served 6 years in the Army Reserves. Upon completion of basic training, he worked at Challenge Creamery and customed farmed. He quit the creamery when he purchased his farm and built the dairy.

In 2017, they purchased a place at Colson Creek in Shoup, Idaho, where he and Brenda spent many hours fishing. Larry never considered anyone a stranger and enjoyed visiting with everyone and always offered a helping hand to friends and neighbors.
