Larry was born April 17, 1941 in Decatur to Rudolph and Arlene (Branch) Macek.

Larry was an avid woodworker; he enjoyed making many toys, often to give away, but did keep a version of each toy he crafted.

Larry will be missed by his wife of 52 years, Janie Macek; his children, Christopher Gossett and Kenneth (Debra) Macek; his grandchildren, Kenneth Macek, and Lisa Macek; his brother, Charles (Jo) Macek; and his nephew, Chuck (Becky) Macek and their family.
