Larry Gene Vick, 45, of Grandview passed away Friday, July 6, 2007, at Sunnyside Community Hospital.

He was born April 1, 1962, in Marshfield, Wis. to Eugene John and Carol Jean Vick. He received his education and graduated with the Manhattan High School class of 1980, in Manhattan, Mont.

Larry worked various jobs, including nightshift watchman of a large factory, forklift operator, general contractor and assistant purchasing agent.

He enjoyed hunting, fishing, camping, raising horses, drawing, watching movies, listening to music, building furniture, rebuilding automobile engines and was an avid professional wrestling fan. He also enjoyed motorcycles, 3-wheelers, his boat and snowmobiles. Larry could fix anything from a toaster to a tractor.

Larry was as strong as an ox, both mentally and physically. He looked like a big bear to some people, but those who really knew him will remember him as a generous, thoughtful, independent, good hearted and strong willed man.

Larry leaves behind his family and many great friends who miss him dearly and will always love him.

He is survived by his significant other of 13 years, Juanita Brown of Grandview; his parents, Eugene (Tiny) and Carol Vick of Mabton; his sister, Linda Vick of Nampa, Idaho; and his canine companion and best buddy, Reba, who were truly inseparable.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents; and numerous aunts and uncles.

Memorial services will be held Wednesday, July 11, 2007, at 10 a.m. at Smith Funeral Home in Sunnyside.

Those wishing to honor his memory may contribute to the charity of their choice. Smith Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
