Larry Leibel

Larry Jerome Leibel, 78
1942 ~ 2021

Larry J. Leibel went home to be the Lord Jesus on April 10, 2021 surrounded by his family.

Born October 22, 1942 in Mobridge, South Dakota to Anton (Tony) and Frances Leibel.  He was raised on the Leibel Family Farm in Glencross, South Dakota; he was the oldest of seven children. He and his wife Pam were married August 26, 1964 in Timber Lake, South Dakota celebrating 59 years of marriage this year.

After graduating from Timberlake High School in 1960, he enlisted in the United Sates Army stationed with the Third Infantry Division in Germany between 1961 and 1964. He was proud to be a Veteran of his country.  In 2000 he retired from the Western Teamsters Union.

He was an avid cyclist biking up to 20 miles a day, active in his church, Real Life Ministries, serving as a Life Group leader and volunteering in the Benevolence Ministry Food Room amongst many others until he was diagnosed with aggressive brain cancer earlier this year.

He will be remembered for his commitment to the Lord Jesus, his wife, children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.  His work ethic and integrity are unmatched. He never passed up a chance to save a penny and if you were on time you were considered late.  He was always up for a visit whatever the topic might be.

His memory will be cherished and kept alive by his wife and caretaker Pam; children Barbi Umbinetti (Harry), Debbie Sexton, Becki Raymundo (Lou) and Patrick (Amy); his eight grandchildren, Chris (Tamara), Josh, Trevor (Lana), Jamie (Cathaline) Umbinetti, Kyle Sexton, Makenzie Leibel, Lance and Ava Raymundo; great grandchildren Anthony, Ashley, CJ and Callie; his siblings Jane Leibel, Robert Leibel (Gladys), Marion Janas (Doug), Anthony (Cathy), Merle Leibel (Rene), Ron Leibel (JoAnn). He was preceded in death by his parents and his Son Patrick Michael (2010).

The family is thankful for his friends and family who made it to Post Falls, Idaho to say their goodbyes.
