Larry E. Riensche entered into eternal rest on February 28th, 2015, at his home near Langley, WA surrounded by family. He was born in Tecumseh, Nebraska, on October 14, 1944. Larry worked in the sheet metal trade until retirement in 2004.
Larry loved spending time outdoors hunting and fishing and training his bird dogs. His ultimate success was bagging a bull elk in November 2014 and he was very proud to display those antlers in his home.
He and his wife Lenore, enjoyed the woods and wildlife of Whidbey Island where they built their home in 2010 and the waters of Puget Sound. Larry took great joy in spending time with his sons and grand-children and teaching them to hunt and fish.

Survivors include his wife, Lenore Riensche, sons Todd and wife Marie of Richland, Washington: Rick and wife Heather of Richland, Washington: grandchildren Alexis, Colby and Logan of Richland, Washington; brothers Ronald and wife Nancy of Riverview, Florida; Glen and special friend, Pam Lloyd of Ceresco, and sister Barb Washburn and husband Doug of Ashland.
