Larry G Himmespoch

 

Larry G. Himmelspoch of Rolla, Missouri passed away peacefully on Friday August 25, 2023, at Missouri Veteran’s Home in St. James, Missouri at the age of 89.  Larry was born in Chaffee, Missouri on July 20, 1934, to the late Ardell B. and Rosalia “Rose” (Eichhorn) Himmelspoch - Talley.

Larry graduated from Chaffee High School in the Class of 1953.  Following graduation, he attended Southeast Missouri State College in Cape Girardeau, Missouri for 2 years.  He then attended and graduated from the Cape Girardeau Office Training School.

Larry proudly served eight years in the United States Naval Reserve during which time he was ordered to serve two-years active-duty in Naples, Italy, later being transferred to Pisa, Italy.  For many years following Larry always remembered sailing the Atlantic through the Gibraltar Straight, Corsica and Sardinia, to the Mediterranean Sea, stopping in Barcelona before reaching Naples.

After 30 years of service as a Staff Specialist for the Department of the Army in Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri, Larry retired on July 28, 1989. 

Larry never met a person he didn’t think of as a friend.  He often hosted dinners and gatherings for both his family and his friends.  He was well known for his annual St. Patrick’s Day celebration.

Larry was an exceptional musician and for many years he served St. Patrick’s Catholic church as an organist and a pianist.  His music provided a special beauty for Sunday Masses, weddings of friends and families, and in times of sorrow funerals for parishioners and loved ones.  

There will be a visitation on Friday, October 20, 2023, beginning at 10 AM followed by a Funeral Mass at 11 AM at St. Patrick Catholic Church in Rolla, Missouri.  Burial will be at Lake Spring Cemetery in Rolla. 

The family would like to extend their heartfelt appreciation to the staff and volunteers of Missouri Veteran’s Home in St. James for the loving care and support given to Larry.
