Larry F. Schroeder, 76, died on Thursday April 11, 2019, in Gulfport, Florida.  He was born July 21, 1942, in Lima, Ohio to Frank H. and Bernice B. (Wells) Schroeder.  They both preceded him in death.

Larry became a foster father in 2008 and is survived by his daughter (niece), Erin M. Schroeder of Palm Harbor, Fl.  He is survived also by Eunice L. Reed of Columbus Grove, Louis T. Scott of Paris, KY, Aunt Marilyn, Aunt Mary Louise, a close cousin Dennis, Uncle Wilbur, Uncle Rudy and a niece Angela all of Columbus Grove, and his many other cousins and family.  He loved his family and close friends unconditionally, going above and beyond for all that were close to his heart, including his closest friends, Steve Goecke, Jason Fromi, Rick K., Julie Faist and Eric Rossi.

He was preceded in death by his brother Gerald "Jerry" (Tonia J.) Schroeder.

Larry attended St. Anthony Catholic School and Columbus Grove High School.  He went on to graduate from college with a Bachelors of Science degree in Business and his Masters degree in Marketing. He started to excel in sales at a young, being highly recognized as top salesman for school fund raisers. His proficient business skills led him to the entrepreneurship of his businesses: Crazy Larry's Carpet Store, Royal Auto Sales and the many rental properties.  He was soaring high in the corporate world, and was known as a triumphant businessman.  Larry contributed a lot of his success to his grandma Frances Schroeder, from the influential impact she had on his life.

My heart aches in the loss of one of my Lifetime Pals. Larry we had so many good times, playing under the bridge and chasing Mrs. Alstaetters dumb ole Peacocks. May God hold you in his Arms, watching over all of us, until we meet again. Oh, if we could have had just one more Phone Call!! You know you were loved.
