Obituary of Larry Donald Billmeier

Please share a memory of Larry to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Billmeier, Larry Donald



Growing up in Munger, Larry was surrounded by farms and fields of life-giving crops. Sun, rain, and soil nurture the tiny seed that becomes a magnificent sunflower. Its bright face never strays from looking to the sunrise, yet it ends its days in shadow. Most sunflowers naturally dry on the stalk, with seeds harvested for market or left as nourishment for wildlife. A sunflower can also be cut down before its full potential is achieved. Our Larry Boy passed away in Bay City at age 62.

Larry graduated from Reese High School in 1978 and attended Delta College. He was proud of his straight A’s and merits in art. Larry worked at Bay Medical Center / McLaren Bay Region for 39 years, where he amassed many friendships. Bringing comfort to patients and joking around with co-workers made his job gratifying.

Larry was liked by everyone he met, always ready with a smile, pun, or kind greeting. He was generous to a fault, often giving to others before thinking of his own needs. Rarely having a harsh word against anyone, Larry sought out the good in others. Larry loved antiquing and collecting, watching quiz shows, listening to music, and chatting over a meal of Chinese food. Amidst his own toils and snares, he was always quick to acknowledge his blessings and gratitude to Jesus Christ.

Larry was predeceased by his hero, his father, Donald Billmeier, and infant sister Sherry Billmeier. He is survived by his devoted mother, Dellena Billmeier; siblings, Steven Billmeier, Christina Billmeier Irwin, and Sheryl Billmeier Hnizda; son, Ryan Billmeier; and grandchildren. His many nieces and nephews adored their Uncle Larry who always had a two-dollar bill or trinket at the ready. To all who knew him, thank you for being a friend to our beloved Larry.

A private memorial will be held by his family. Those planning an expression of sympathy are asked to consider memorial contributions to The Salvation Army USA at  To sign online guestbook, visit  Arrangements made with Cremation Society of Mid Michigan.
