Larry Edward Scheib was born April 30, 1954 in Harrisonville, Missouri to Merlin and Julia Pruett Scheib.

The loss of a family member is never easy. We shed our tears and our hearts are breaking but the memories you made will not be forgotten. The many weekends at the lake, the fish fries, and the general love you gave to us and our children are unforgettable. You defied all odds having beaten cancer multiple times, though the road thereafter wasn’t forgiving. I know you were ready and were at peace.

You lived a full life with no regrets. So as our hearts will start to mend, and your children remember their dad and all the grandchildren their grandpa, and your brother and sister grieve, may you sit in peace (maybe in a pair of overhauls and a flannel shirt) and with much happiness catching that biggest crappie ever.

Larry was preceded in death by his parents and dear friend and father figure Catfish Charlie. He is survived by his children, Christina Volpe and husband Brian, Angela Maloney and husband Tom, Jason Scheib and wife Alison, Bryan Scheib and wife MaKayla, Amy Huber and husband Stephen, Matthew Keeth, and Jessica Keeth. He also leaves behind 22 grandchildren whom he cherished and was very proud of each and every one, siblings, Marie Rogers and Michael Scheib and wife Pam, along with nieces, nephews, and extended family members.
