Laurence “Larry” Klima, 81, of Mount Vernon, died at home on Thursday, July 14, 2016. Celebration of Life: 1-5 p.m. on Saturday, August 6, 2016, at El Kahir Shrine, 905 Tower Terrace Road, Hiawatha. Private Family Burial: Mt. Zion Cemetery, Mount Vernon. Arrangements are with Stewart Baxter Funeral & Memorial Services, Mount Vernon.

Larry was born November 4, 1934, the son of William and Anna (Mareda) Klima in Cedar Rapids. Larry and Roberta were married in 1956 and raised their family in town. After 38 years at Rockwell, he retired and they bought a farm in rural Mount Vernon. He loved to garden and play in the band, of which there were many.

Dad’s love of family, music, and friends will forever be with us. A quiet man who thought of others before himself, appreciated the simple things in life and a job well done.

He was preceded in death by his parents

Memorials may be directed to the Linn Township Trustees or the El Kahir Shrine.
