MaryAnn, I think of you and the rest of the friends from Williston a lot. I was so sorry to hear of your great loss. I did not know Larry but I know what a loving family he had.
June 27, 2012 - Linda & Dave McAdoo of Bismarck, ND
To the Gaudreau Family,
A very bright and wonderful light has most certainly gone out in the city of Williston and the hearts of many. Larry was simply the best. We feel blessed to have known him and consider him our friend...we spent many years having the pleasure of sitting in the pew ahead of him and MaryAnn at First Lutheran Church. We always enjoyed a good visit before, after (and sometimes during) the church service. Please accept our most sincere and heartfelt sympathy.
Linda & Dave McAdoo
June 27, 2012 - Scott and Louise Andersen of Belle Rose, Louisiana
To the Gaudreau family I would like to express my deepest sympathy for your loss. I was very saddened to hear that Larry passed away. He was a great man and leaves behind such a wonderful family. I have so many memories of all the fun times we shared. I feel so lucky that I was able to grow up just down the street from all of you, although I am sure there were times when Tim and Terry and I were running wild that Larry didn't feel so lucky to have me down the street. Larry was always so cheerful and genuine with his concern for others and always ready to lend a hand if needed. He will be dearly missed by many. Again, my deepest condolences to all of you.
June 27, 2012 - Debbie Sederquest of Crosby, ND
Dear Mary Ann and family. My heart goes out to all of you on your sorrowful loss. I always admired watching you together as you radiate what true love is all about. May you find comfort in
the arms of Christ. Peace be with you.

To the Gaudreau Family,

Larry will be missed by all of us who were blessed just by knowing him. I was glad to talk to Tim at the Oil Expo. I told Tim to thank Larry for helping me get started in my business, because without Larry's help I would not be where I am today. I have had great respect for the man I called a friend. I will miss him. You all are in our thoughts and prayers.

June 26, 2012 - Mark and Jackie Stenehjem of Fargo, ND
Dear Mary Ann and Family,
In the 1970’s we admired Larry’s mechanical skills when he kept our cars operating. Our admiration for Larry continued to grow over the last 4o years as we saw him working tirelessly to make his hometown a better place. However, what we admired most in Larry was that he was such a regular, sometimes gruff, loveable guy- never too proud to admit to his past failures in life or too shy to talk about how important God and his family were in his life.
Last Sunday morning, God surely met Larry and said “"Well done, good and faithful servant….” May the love and presence of God and your friends and family comfort and support you as you mourn the loss of Larry.
Mark and Jackie
June 26, 2012 - Malcolm & Denise Pippin of Williston, North Dakota
Dear Friends: We are deeply saddened by your loss and will dearly miss Larry. He was an absolute joy to be around, whether at the lake, at hockey, or anywhere else. Always had a wonderful laugh and was a true joy.

One of my fondest memories of Larry was a few years ago at the lake. One of the girls and I pulled up to the beach with our jet skis and Larry asked me if he could take the faster one for a ride. He then took off on it like a rocket at 75 years of age! I remember thinking that I hope that I have that type of energy and enthusiasm for life at age 47, let alone at age 75 ! He had such a zest for life and his family- I greatly admired him for that.

That episode typified Larry for me- living life wide open full of cheer, fun and love.

We will all miss him dearly. God Bless, the Pippins
June 26, 2012 - Mike and Sheila Satterlee of Billings, MT
Dear Mary Ann and family,

We are so sorry for your loss. Larry was a great guy, always met everyone with a smile and more than willing to lend a helping hand to anyone in need. He will be missed by all who knew him. You all are in our prayers.

Mary Ann and family

So sorry to hear of the passing of our great friend and family member. Every time I came back to Williston I'd look Larry up and he always had that big smile on his face, great converstion and fixed me up with a rental car.

June 26, 2012 - Emalou Anderson King of Soquel, California
Dear Mary Ann and family,
I am saddened by your loss. I can't think about Larry without smiling. What a great guy.
I especially remember once on a holiday, when you were out at the lake and I drove my red Ford pinto to the car wash to really clean it good. My son and I were being funny and stuck the hose over the shift stick and it sucked it right off. Shocking! Of course, we couldn't go anyplace until Larry came back to Williston. He unlocked the machine and retrieved it with a smile.God blessed us with him and may He bless you at this most difficult time. Big hugs.
June 26, 2012 - Walter and Beth Darr of Williston, ND

June 26, 2012 - David & Darla Kloek (Rockney) of Coon Rapids, MN
We are so sorry for your loss. My husband has thoroughly enjoyed the many conversations over the years he has had with Larry. Larry would order used car parts from him. There were times David would just call him to chat and see how he was doing or what was going on in Williston. He will be missed by many. My thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time.
June 26, 2012 - Mildred Helgeson, Barb Bennigsdorf
I met Larry when I rented a car from him when I flew home to visit my mom at Bethel Home. My flight was delayed and Larry left the car at the airport with a sign in the window welcoming me to Williston and the keys were under the visor. Since it was the weekend, Mom and I finally got to his office Monday to settle with him. The phones were ringing and people waiting to see him, but he still took time to come out to the car and visit with Mom. That meant so much to her. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
June 26, 2012 - Scott Key of Fort Collins, CO
To the entire family:

So sorry to learn of Larry's passing. He was always such a 'get it done' kind of man. My family loved doing business with him.

They don't make 'em like Larry much anymore.
June 26, 2012 - Warren and Geri Beckman of The Woodlands, TX
Mary Ann and Family
I'm so sorry to hear of Larry's passing. I have known Larry all my life. I have been gone from Williston for almost 50 years but I always made it a point to look him up every summer when I came home. We had some wonderful days together, down here in the Houston Area, driving around and vistiting about the past and the present.
Had a nice visit when he was here at the Medical Center.
I was hoping I would see him in July, but I will never forget him and all the valuable time I had with him my whole life.
He was a great guy.
June 26, 2012 - Stuart Goehring of New Salem, North Dakota
We the entire family of NOV Wilson would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the family in this time of loss. Larry has truly had a broad sweeping impact on family and business in the area. We wish the family all the best.

June 26, 2012 - Kristy Richards of Rochester, MN
No matter how many kind words are said about Larry, it will still be an understatement of what and who he was to me here on this earth.

Larry will remain in my heart and serve as a person who always grounded me. He was an everpresent person in my life for my entire life thus far.

I see Larry's passing as the gift of another angel I know I can count on to watch over me daily. I am so very thankful for Larrys life and the opportunity to have been counted as someone in his.

All the love one family can handle must be pouring in every door at the big yellow house on the corner, I so wish I could be there. Love Kristy and Doug

Dear Mary Ann and all of the family:

Was saddened to hear of Larry's death. What a wonderful person and he live the wonderful life. Always such an upbeat person and always ready for a conversation wherever and whenever one saw him. I know we saw all of you many times when we were with our families and all of us had to do the 'Williston tradition' of going to Servcie Drug! Known all of you for so many years and you are all a very strong and close knit family. Mary Ann, you will be very lonesome, but Larry is with Jesus and you have your family to support you. I still have that wonderful Christmas video on my computer. So very touching and sweet. I loved the song and need to download it to my itunes, sometime. Anyway, I just wanted you to know you are in our thoughts and prayers. God be with you all.
June 26, 2012 - Denise Haugen of Saint Paul, MN
My deepest sympathies to Mary Ann and family. Your Dad was one of the nicest men ever and I know you will miss him tremendously. Take care of yourselves.

My sister and i would alsways rent a car from larry when we came back to Williston to visit our mother in Bethel home.

I knew Larry mainly by doing business with him. I rented vehicles from him, and I even purchased one from him. He was always a fair man to deal with, and he always friendly and courteous. People like him are few and far between in this world. I'm sorry for your loss. He will surely be missed.
June 26, 2012 - Janet Jorgenson of Williston, ND
Mary Ann and family,
I am so saddened to hear of Larry's passing. He was a wonderfully nice guy to everyone he met. I was visiting with Joan on the phone awhile back, and she told me he was ill. I'm so sorry for your loss. Larry is in Heaven now with the Lord, and his good buddy, Gary. They are playing in God's band and driving around in fancy antique cars, and of course they are watching over you. Take comfort in knowing that you will all be reunited one day. My prayers are with you. God Bless.

What holy ground you were on when you were able to be there when Larry passed to his new adventure. And that seems to sum him up for me. He always was on an adventure. What a great lesson he lived of living life to the fullest.
Our prayers are with all of you and we wish we could be there for the service.
In sure and certain hope in the resurrection!

Mary Ann and family,

After reading Kristi's post- I completely agree with how lucky we were to be growing up with so much family love at all of our family gatherings. Uncle Larry was a very special man with such a kind heart! Celebrate his life BIG! Hugs and kisses to all of you. Special hugs sent your way Mary Ann!
June 25, 2012 - Greg & Charysse Everson and Family of Williston, ND
Dear Mary Ann, Tim, Terry, Tammy, Todd and Tommy, and the whole clan:

We Eversons are heart-sick about the loss of your beloved Larry and our good friend. Our family adored Larry, as we do all of you, and will deeply miss our neighbor at the lake. We are grateful to have had the opportunity to spend a little time with Larry and your family in the last few weeks out at Paradise.

Charysse and I are truly amazed at the manner in which Larry conducted himself in his last months. He had a wonderful outlook on life and lived every moment with his same cheery nature that was his trademark. What an amazing and gracious man.

We are sorry that we are out of country on a family vacation and can't be there for you. We will see you all soon.

God bless you all and God Bless Larry.

We are thinking of you all and send many hugs to each of you. Uncle Larry will be missed. I have many good memories of our family gatherings through the years which make me realize how blessed I was growing up with many cousins and aunts and uncles. What comes to mind the most is Uncle Larry loving his desserts the most.....and he had such a good way of laughing and joking around with all of us kids. Wish I could be there at his service, if not, I will keep you all in my prayers. May the Lord Bless your time together as you celebrate your Dad's life. Hugs, Kristi
June 25, 2012 - Anita Lopez of Davis, California
To Mary Ann and family,

I have many loving memories of Larry. He always made our California family feel so welcome and comfortable whenever we were visiting in Williston. He enjoyed sharing many interesting stories with us about the history of Williston and the surrounding areas and we loved hearing the stories. He was very generous with us in so many ways (sharing his time, meals, vehicles, gifts, etc.). I will always remember his smile and that wonderful twinkle in his eyes. He so loved you and all his family.

May your heart and soul find peace and comfort in the wonderful memories he has left for you in your hearts.

With love and hope,

My dad just called to me know about Larry's passing. I'm so very sorry for your loss. I will always treasure my memories of all the fun we had at Paradise Point. Larry always welcomed us with a smile! May God and the love of family & friends comfort you during this difficult time.
June 25, 2012 - Leslie Carns of williston, nd
MaryAnn , I was sad and shocked to read of Larrys passing. I remember being in Washington visiting home and a lady I was talking to, remembered Larry because she rented a car from him. He was known far and wide. Im sorry you had to say goodbye so soon. I pray that Gods love will hold your heart and spirit during this saddest of days
June 25, 2012 - Nancy Sylte Keller of Edinburg, Texas

June 25, 2012 - Herb Hicks of Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada
Mary Ann and family, I was so saddened to learn of Larry's passing. He was one of my best friends. Our friendship goes back some 70 years. I have so many great memories of my fine friend; from our high school days, our trip to California, working for Larry at the Texaco station, and sharing our stories by phone or at reunions in Williston. Larry was so gracious. I was always pleased to learn of his new ventures and his sense of humor always left me with a smile and a sunny disposition. I will sorely miss Larry whose friendship will always be my most cherished memories.
Mary Ann and family--you must take great pride in having had such a wonderful human being as your husband, father, grandfather....and friend. My prayers are with you.
June 25, 2012 - Mark & Vikki (Schneider) Osborn of Williston
Mary Ann and family,
Thoughts and prayers to you all during this difficult time. Memories of our summers at Paradise Point bring a smile. Keep your memories close, and Larry will be with you.

Vikki & Mark
June 25, 2012 - Cal and Dorothy Watterud of EGRand forks, Mn
Words cannot express how sorry we are for your loss. Know that God's love and the love of so many people surround you and will sustain you. Larry was a wonderful man , and truly a friend to so many folks...He has left a great legacy to his family and to the town of Williston.
We are sorry that we will be unable to be there for the funeral, as you probably know Cal is the nursing home here and I don't really feel safe driving home by myself ( even taking the train) but I will have you all in my prayers. God bless his memory and all of his family. Cal & Dorothy
June 25, 2012 - Marlis & Dallas Cote of Palm Desert, California

sorry to hear of larrys passing. he will be greatly missed in williston because of all the kind things he did for the people there.
June 25, 2012 - Doug Peppers of Bloomington, Illinois
This is hard to believe. I always thought Larry would outlast Methusla. This will leave a hole in the fabric of the city that will take time to mend. When I first moved there in 1981 he took the time watch over me and when I left in 1992 he thanked me for being there. In retrospect, that was Larry, never far, always available, and snapping at your heels the whole way. So many will miss him.
June 25, 2012 - Nancy (Saint) Wisness of Watford City, ND
Larry was such a fine fellow and always fun to visit with..........he will certainly be missed. My thoughts are with you all. We are leaving for Seattle for a wedding so will be unable to attend the funeral.
June 25, 2012 - David and Monna Haugen of Belfair, Washington
Our prayers are with you at this sad time Mary Ann and Family. Brother Dean called yesterday with news of his passing. Dean also related how you and Larry came to the train station to see him off when he was last in Williston. It was a significant moment to him. The bountiful blessings our Lord be with you.
June 25, 2012 - Julie McBride of Bismarck, North Dakota
To all of Larry's family.
May you all find peace in that Larry has gone on to his heavely home and is in a better place and has no more pain. there will be such a void in your lives and those who where all of Larry's friends as well. He left his mark on many and the whole Williston community. Sending you peacfe and God's Blessing today and always.
June 25, 2012 - Shelley
I am so sorry for your loss. Please know that you are never alone. You can find much comfort in the Holy Scriptures which assures us at Psalms 34:18 that God is near to those broken at heart and crushed in spirit. Please accept my deepest sympathies.
June 25, 2012 - John Eric Rolfstad of Seattle, WA
To all the Gaudreau's: So sorry to hear of Larry's death. He was such a great guy and his passing leaves a huge void. I always enjoyed visiting with him when I was back in town. I remember him as a youth adviser at the church back when I was active in Luther League--more than 30 years ago. He will be missed. Peace be with all of you in this time of loss.
June 25, 2012 - Dar Folkestad Jung/Adeline Folkestad of Jamestown, ND

Romans 14:8
"For if we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord. So then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord’s."

Luke 20:38
"He is not the God of the dead, but of the living, for to him all are alive."

Revelation 14:13
"Then I heard a voice from heaven say, "Write: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on." "Yes," says the Spirit, "they will rest from their labor, for their deeds will follow them."

My sympathy on Larrys passing, be proud and happy he did things his way and enjoyed it all. From JC's to Lions and all others he gave his best and made our part more enjoyable. I liked seeing him in April and will always miss that warm smile and those hands telling you things were exciting for him. You had a wonderful husband and father.
