Larry Ray Passmore

Born in Marshall, Arkansas, Larry moved with his family to Colorado when he was 10. He started logging with his dad at an early age and loved the outdoors. Larry graduated in the top five of his class of Ridgway High School in 1963. He joined the Army and was a payroll clerk. After service, he used his business skills to operate many businesses over the years from selling firewood, running auction houses, owning furniture stores and later a produce farm and orchard with his wife, Lisa. Always a salesman, Larry never met a stranger and most people always knew where they stood with him; good, bad or indifferent. An avid hunter, Larry enjoyed camping and four wheeling and plowing snow, but mostly tearing up new Dodge trucks! Larry was preceded in death by his parents, Jess and Mabel Passmore and is survived by his wife, Lisa, of Montrose, son Lindsey (Lisa), grandson Shadrick and granddaughter Delaney of Glenwood Springs, brother Gene (Sharon) of Montrose, sister Pegi Baumgartner of Montrose, sister Velda Jo (Rob) Bryson of Lake Havasu City, step-son Tony Lewis of Montrose, step-daughter Angela Lewis of Aspen, and several nieces and nephews. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Hospice & Palliative Care of Western Colorado as they took great care to ensure Larry’s remaining time was as comfortable as it could be. No services are planned at this time. There will be a celebration of his life in spring of 2011. Details will be published at a later date.
