The Story

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.

Larry was preceded in death by his parents, Merle and Marjorie Riensche of Tecumseh and infant son Duane. 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. He was also greatly loved by his nieces, nephews and many cousins.

Dear brother, I sure am going to miss you and how you always seemed to have the ability to think things through before acting, unlike me who rushed in. I know that you are with your Heavenly Father, and look forward to being with you in the future.

Miss you, Dad! I sure am glad I finally got the chance to go elk hunting with you; just one of many memories I will cherish. <3

Dear Larry, You were always my best friend. You loaned me your quiet strength and I flourished. I will never stop loving you. Lenore
