Larry was born Tuesday, June 30, 1936 in Harper, Iowa to the late Harold and Alma Dumont Gabel. He grew up and attended schools in Iowa. Larry was a self employed remodeling contractor for over 40 years starting his own business in Kansas City and then again when moving to Texas in 1984. He was a perfectionist in his trade and his excellent work required no advertising other than word of mouth by satisfied customers.

Larry never met a stranger and once you knew him, he was your friend. He will be deeply missed.
