Larry Shoemaker

August 15, 1942 — April 7, 2021

Alexandria, MN

Larry Dean Shoemaker was born on August 15, 1942 in Alexandria to Arlington and Helen (Beloredsky) Shoemaker. He married Mary Ettel on August 12, 1977 in Hennepin county. Together they had 2 daughters, Kimberly and Dawn. After moving back to Alexandria in 1995, Larry worked at various manufacturing facilities until he retired.

He made sure that everyone walking through his doors was fed no matter where they came from and always had homemade cookies on hand.

Larry was a great fisherman and introduced both daughters to fishing at a young age. He also enjoyed working on his model car kits, fishing, reading, baking and driving. He welcomed a granddaughter in 2011 and enjoyed spending time with her every weekend
