Larry Arthur Moeller was born January 11, 1945 in Pipestone, MN, the son of Arthur and Adeline (Zoeller) Moeller. Larry graduated from Evansville High School in 1963 and started working in the Twin Cities. After working various jobs Larry settled down and was united in marriage to Linda Monson on June 15, 1968. They lived in Apple Valley and began raising their two children. At this time he decided he would like to be his own boss and leased and operated a Clark gas station in Bloomington, MN. In 1978 they moved to Royalton where they raised their two children, operated a campground and managed the gas station in Bloomington. After their kids were grown, Larry and Linda moved to the Maple Plain/Delano, MN area where he worked in sales and ultimately went back to being his own boss starting his own business, LM Sharpening Wheels. In 2000, while on vacation in the Perham area, and not looking to move, the couple saw a home on Big McDonald Lake for sale. After placing an offer, they closed on their new home on Linda’s birthday. The home was a perfect place for the two with a large yard for Larry to mow and easy access to be out fishing as well as places for Linda’s garden and flowers.
Larry loved to be outside which could have involved: fishing, hunting, taking care of the yard, having a bonfire or simply sitting on the deck with a cup of coffee or maybe even a shot of brandy. Larry enjoyed traveling with friends and family and his love for people was evident for everyone that he had contact with; he could easily strike up a conversation. His love for people shined brightest for his wife, kids, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. He was always happy when they would be able to visit in person when he could catch up with them while playing a board game or a game of cards. If he had not seen any of them in a while, he would give them a call to find out what they were all up to.
Surviving Larry are his wife Linda; his daughter Traci (Gary) Klemish; his son Troy Moeller; grandchildren Amber (Tyler), Brittani (Nick), Josh (Samantha), Kaily, and Amelia; great-grandchildren Ellowyn, Maveryk, Rylen, and Westyn; sister Rose Daun (Gordy) Olson; brother Lonny (Crystal) Moeller; along with numerous nieces and nephews.
Preceding Larry in death were his parents and his daughter-in-law Karen Moeller.
