Larry Corll

Larry Allan Corll was born on June 12, 1941 in Mt Ayr, Iowa and passed away on June 8, 2017 in Mt Ayr, Iowa. Larry graduated from high school in Mt Ayr and then attended Northwest Missouri State College in Maryville, Mo where he graduated with a degree in business.

After college Larry went to work for Economics Laboratory but decided early on that the corporate life was not for him. He then went into the construction business where he could pretty much do anything from building folding tv stands to building homes. One of his proudest accomplishments was building a new house for his mother. Larry continued "building" things right to the end even though the last few years were dif?cult with some physical health problems.

Larry was in the Army and served his country in Viet Nam. This was a dif?cult period in his life that he did not like to talk about. Larry was not big into hobbies other than his love of horses of which he owned several over the years.

Larry was preceded in death by his mother Virginia "Susie" Corll, father William "Willie" Corll, sister Phyllis Ann Corll, nephew Kirk Davenport and niece Kelly Davenport.

Larry leaves behind his sister Norma Kay Thompson and her husband Larry Thompson of Huxley, Iowa, brother Don Corll and his wife Barbara of Estero, Florida plus several nieces, nephews and cousins.

Per Larry's wishes, he has been cremated and no services are scheduled. Online condolences may be left at www.armstrongfh.com.

As an early mentor in my life, Larry instilled a work ethic in me that continues to serve me well. I can still remember him saying "If you're early, you're on time. If you're on time, you're ******* late" He could be a bit abrasive, but it was just a part of his personality that those who knew him accepted. I had not spoken to Larry in ten years but every once in a while a memory would pop up. We went to Rio Bravo, drove over the border into Reynosa, and we went to Ely Minnesota to help build a cabin. Those are the two most prominent memories I have.
