Rasmussen on November 17, 1973. After various jobs, he settled in at Roehl Transport where he worked for 40 years retiring in July 2018. He loved his work and his coworkers.
Larry enjoyed travelling and loved trains especially. After retirement, he travelled twice to Wyoming to see the Big Boy from Union Pacific. He loved to travel out west. He wanted to show his father-in-law parts of the country that he had never seen before. He loved watching his son-in-law and grandson in the Loyal Minirodders pulls. We have established a special bond with the group of minirodders.

His grandson, Nicholas, was very special to him. He will miss the special bounding he had with Nicholas. He is further survived by many uncles, aunts & cousins. He will truly be missed.
