Larry Wayne Folker

Written by Larry on January 4, 2006

Well, Boys and Girls, if you’re reading this it’s Adios!

I was born to J. Dale and Agnes Sandland Folker on November 26, 1944.  I have 6 siblings:  Linda, Robert, Glenn, Jeff and Jerry, and Marcia.  All of whom are doing well.  I married Jill Wallace in 1968, we later divorced but remained close friends,  We had one child, a champion, we named Erika.  She in turn married another champion, Steve Sherwood.  They, in the nature of things, gave us 2 grandchildren, Sarah and Jack Sherwood.  Truly, they both give me so much joy-words fail me.  I love them all deeply.  

I’ve had way too many careers/occupations to begin to enumerate.  Guess I was just too restless to stick with one thing. However, because of this wanderlust, I have had the opportunity to meet a vast array of tremendously interesting and wonderful folks, a number of which I can count as friends.  I see it as a privilege to call so many unique individuals I’ve met to be secure enough of their friendship to call them friends.  I can’t refer to names in fear that I would leave someone out.  They know who they are, that’s what’s important.  

Anyone that knows me understands my love of animals in general, and baseball, rodeo and skiing in particular:  three sports I did my best to excel in.  Unfortunately, I was not gifted in any of the three.  I like to think I performed as well as my abilities allowed.  

As far as religion goes, I have subscribed to the “Church of the Golden Rule” for a # of years and that has worked well for me.  

So, with more than enough said, in closing I must say-Very few regrets.  My life has just been one Grand Adventure!!

Love Ya All,

I just became aware of Larrys passing. Very sorry I missed his service.

While we have not had much contact, he was my best man at my wedding. Always happy and smiling is my best memory.

My sincere sympathies to Larrys family.

Rest well my friend-you deserve it.

Dearest Baby Flow,
Your farewell Obituary you wrote saddens me a great deal. As years went by, I know we all lost track of a number of people. I am sorry for that, as growing up in Ogden you were one hell of a person, that could make anyone laugh. To everyone who knew Larry, I am sure you will feel his loss. To his family, you lost a # 10 for sure. May his memories always be with you.
