Brad McHarry will lead the services. The family is requested to meet at the chapel by 1:30 p.m. to attend the services. Larry passed away on September 11, 2007 at his residence in Watertown.

Larry was born on March 30, 1939 at Marrietta, MN to Marvin and Lorraine (Seidslog) Stickland. His family moved to Sisseton, SD when Larry was about eight years old. There they farmed and operated a dairy.

Larry married Eva Lou “Toddy” Palmer on June 29, 1957 at Beardsley, MN. Larry worked in Minneapolis, MN for the Whirlpool Corp. until the early sixties. At that time, the couple moved back to the Sisseton / Claire City, SD area and farmed. In 1989 they moved to Watertown, SD; where they continued to reside. They celebrated fifty years of marriage this past June. At the time of his death, Larry was helping Dave and Teresa Jungers farm.

Larry loved to fish and garden. He was very proud of his and Toddy’s garden. He will always be remembered as a great chef. He will be missed for his many backyard get-togethers. Larry’s pride and joy were his grandchildren, great-grandchildren and his three dachshund companions: Coco, Candy, and Cooper.

Larry is survived by his wife, Toddy, four children: Larry Jr. (Diane) Stickland, of Watertown, SD, Pam Holte of Wahpeton, ND, Billy (Deb) Stickland, of Sisseton, SD, and Ricky (Lynnelle) Stickland, of Great Bend, ND; one brother, Dean Stickland of Sisseton, SD; five sisters: Marjorie Azure of Arizona, Bonnie Hogan of Minnesota, Sandy Stickland of Sisseton, SD, Laura Kimberly of Virginia, and Annette of Minnesota; sixteen grandchildren, and sixteen great-grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by an infant son, Marvin, his parents, and two brothers, Robert and Gary.
