Larry Wiemers Obituary

On the morning of May 9th, Larry peacefully took his final breath as the Lord held him in the palm of His hand and ushered him to heaven.

Larry is survived by his wife of 60 years, Pat, who was the love of his life; his children Shelli (Jim), Sherri, and Pam (Mike); and his 12 grandchildren. Larry and Pat would have celebrated their 61st wedding anniversary in June.

For over 60 years, Larry called the Arroyo Grande community his home, actively participating and contributing to its vibrancy. Involved in many aspects of the community including church, education, athletics, charities and service organizations, Larry had the privilege of impacting many lives. 

Larry found happiness in a multitude of pursuits, from farming and camping to fishing, boating, and western dancing and tandem bike riding with his cherished wife. His passion for tennis, basketball, volunteering, and antique cars brought him great pleasure, as did socializing with long term friends, many of whom he had known for nearly 70 years. 

Those fortunate enough to have experienced Larry's guidance as a coach, on one of his winning basketball or tennis teams, or as one of the 4-H or FFA students who entered his pigs to show at the county fair, or even as a recipient of his compassionate service at People's Kitchen, can attest that Larry dedicated himself wholeheartedly, giving 110% to every endeavor and to every person he encountered.

While affectionately known as "coach" or "pig farmer" to many, to his loved ones Larry was known as "Honey", "Dad," "Papa," or "Uncle Larry." A devoted family man, Larry ingrained within his immediate and extended family the profound importance and value of strong familial bonds. Then, now and forever, he will be eternally treasured, remembered and loved.

A celebration of Larry's remarkable life will take place on July 1st at the First United Methodist Church of Arroyo Grande, commencing at 1:00pm. The family warmly welcomes friends and community members to join them in sharing cherished memories and stories of Larry. Following the service, a reception will be held at Criswell Hall.
