Larry Dale Harris, “Grandpa,” passed away peacefully at home surrounded by family and friends on the evening of July 25, 2020, at the age of 73. Larry was born on March 31, 1947, in Kanab, Utah, to Kenneth R. Harris and Wanda (DeMille) Harris. Larry married Annette Edith Bloomquist in April of 1975 in Hurricane Utah.

Larry grew up in Leeds Utah and from there he joined the United States Army on Oct. 26, 1966, where he served his country proudly in the Vietnam war until Oct. 25, 1968. Larry was a simple hard-working man, who loved nothing more than family, guns and this country. Larry would do anything for anyone. He volunteered for the VFW for several years. Larry enjoyed working on his lathe making everything from razors to pens, pretty much anything to keep him busy.
