On November 10, 2021 in hospice care at BroMenn Medical Center, Larry F. Vogel, 83, stepped into glory with his wife of 49 years by his side. Larry was born on December 29, 1937 to Ray and Dorothy Flessner Vogel.
He married Dixie Schumacher Pinkham on July 15, 1972. She survives. He is also survived by two brothers, Butch (Carole) of Mountain Home, AR; Bob (Kay) of Metamora; his children, Tracy Vogel Kincer of Peoria; Krista (Ron) Bachman of Secor; Troy Vogel of Florida; Trisha (LaWade) Keeton of Peoria; and Kyle Vogel of Roanoke; his grandchildren, Morgan (David) Marquardt, Becca (Phil) Schafer, Leah (Caleb) Horn, Payton (Dalton) White, Sam (Brandon) Balk, Nathan and Collin Keeton, Skylar and Jase Vogel, Kamron and Rylan Bachman; his great-grandchildren, Ryder, Harbour, Marin, and Seyer Marquardt, Kael and Lex Schafer, Emerson Gregory, Avery Horn, Boone and Rhett White and many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents and three sisters.
An Army veteran, Larry proudly served his country overseas stationed in Germany. Larry was a machinist working for many different shops for over 40 years.
Larry’s greatest joy came with seeing his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He loved sports, fishing, and being outside. Larry was an avid doer of yard work and enjoyed time on his back patio and loved to tinker around in his basement.
At Larry’s request, his life will be celebrated in the Spring of 2022 in rural Secor. Knapp-Johnson-Harris Funeral Home in Roanoke is assisting the family with arrangements.
