Lawrence was born May 5, 1947, in Detroit to the late Lawrence Anthony Kroha, Sr. and Wilma Marie (nee Berghoff) Kroha.

Larry loved his family deeply and always made them his priority. He was a dedicated father to his children, whom he was so proud of. He coached his sons in hockey for many years, and never missed his children's sporting events or milestones. He loved spending time with his children and grandchildren. Larry loved the mountains of Colorado and often referred to himself as a cowboy. He spent many summers there with his family in his younger years, and later bringing his own family to experience the joy of the mountains. Larry loved to hike, jeep, and play golf with his many friends. Coming from a large family himself, Larry had an uncanny ability to make everyone he knew feel like they were a part of his own family.

I’m sorry for the loss of your dad, I have many fond memories from our time together at the Ten Kelly branch. May God comfort your family at the difficult time.
Condolences to Larry's family and friends. I will surely miss him.
Larry had a 12th birthday party at his house and I won a contest to name various pictures of baseball players. Of course, I got 100% and won a model airplane. Played a lot of touch football in his spacious side yard.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Larry, Kim, Michael and the entire Kroha family. We are sorry to hear of Larry’s passing. We have some good memories.
Ed and Laurie Mandziara
God bless Larry. Happy he and Barb are reunited. Love lasts forever! ❤️❤️
