He was preceded in death by his parents and three siblings: Ida VonDerHeide, Alan Bucher and Eugene Bucher.

Larry supported his family by working as a janitor for 30 years at Fred Meyers.
He was a man who loved the outdoors and working with his hands, he was always fixing and tinkering with whatever needed done. He was a very quiet gentle man with a quiet laugh who loved to tell jokes. He had a soft spot in his heart for cats. He would often pick up his kitties to pet and speak gently. His gentle nature endeared him to all who knew him.
