On November 21, 2012, Larry went to be with his heavenly father.  He was born to Lawrence and Alice Broekhuizen May 20, 1944 in Decatur, MI.  He moved to AZ in 1971.  He was a truck driver for nearly 50 years.  He drove many years for Reliable carriers, where he owned and operated an auto transporter, and the last 8 years for Wal-Mart Transportation.  He died of a heart attack behind the wheel on I-10 – MP 41 (New Mexico).  Even to the end he kept the “shiny side up” and harmed no other soul.  He is survived by his wife of 47 years, Vicki, daughters Michele (John) Gersitz and Tamara Broekhuizen.  Grandchildren Taylor and Brittany Eckerman and Riley and Joshua Gersitz, sister Ann Geenen, Henrietta Smeenge and Geraldine (Jerome) Bush.  At Larry’s request there will be no services.  Memorial donations may be made to Habitat for Humanity.
