Lawrence (Larry) M. Neumeier was born March 24, 1953 in Dragerton, Utah, the baby of 11 children. He lived in Moab for many years. He passed away Jan. 27, 2013.

Larry was a 59-year-old Down Syndrome male, who through his life gave much love and humor to those he met.

Larry never knew a stranger, they were people he knew – or he thought they knew him when he was little.

He was a “ham,” a good dancer, Elvis fan and had to be the “star of the show.” He will be missed by many.

Larry was an avid sports fan, especially if it involved the New York Yankees or Chicago Bears. He took it personally if they lost. He was also a great bowler and has many medals and trophies from Special Olympics to show for the love of the game.

Larry was preceded in death by his parents, Justin and Katie Neumeier; sister, Mary Irene Neumeier; and brothers, Justin J. Neumeier and James K. Neumeier.

He is survived his siblings, Katie Rodosh, Henderson, Nev., Jerry (Carol) Neumeier, St. George, Utah, Pat Gorman, Moab, Utah, Sue (Bill) Huggins, Henderson, Nev., Doris (Frank) Miller, Wellington, Utah, Elizabeth (Keith) Justensen, Henderson, Nev., Peggy (Kent) Lindquist, Moab, Utah, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, great- nieces and great-nephews.

Arrangements will be announced at a later date.
