Lawrence Jerome Streeter, age 82, of St. Francis, MN, passed away peacefully on Sunday, February 6, 2022, surrounded by his loving family who will miss him dearly.
Larry grew up in the Camden area of North Minneapolis where he formed many lifelong friendships that began in grade school and carried through high school, military and life. They were a unique group of friends. After graduating from Patrick Henry High school, he entered the military and was stationed in Fort Lewis, Washington. He later served as a color guard with the St. Francis American Legion Post #622. Larry loved life and did his best to live it to the fullest. He enjoyed fishing, golfing, traveling, time with friends and family, and playing cribbage. He and Sharon enjoyed many trips to Mexico, winters in Florida, time in Hawaii, and many other travels. An avid Vikings fan, on game days he could be heard “talking enthusiastically” at the TV, regardless of how the game was going. Most of all, he loved his family and relished any opportunity to spend time with them, including many hours watching his grandchildren’s sports. He was always ready to lend a hand, share his keen sense of humor, or liven up the party. Larry will be remembered for his generosity and spark for life. He was loved by many and will be greatly missed.
Larry was preceded in death by his parents Earl and Evelyn Streeter; brothers Dick, Gene and Danny; sister Loraine Anderson; and brothers-in-law, Keith Anderson and Douglas Eidem.
Larry is survived by his loving wife of 59 years, Sharon; children, Scott, Brent (Lynn), Michele (Brian) White; grandchildren, David (Sarah); Riley, Hailey and Ellie; Keegan and Keira White; four great grandchildren; Sister, Duffer (Rosemary) Eidem; a large extended family of niece, nephews, in-laws; and many friends.
