In Loving Memory

Bierman, Lawrence (Larry) S.

Lawrence S. Bierman (Larry), known to many as Butch, was called home at the age of 85 on November 26, 2023, after a long battle with Parkinson’s disease.  Larry is survived by his beloved wife of 59 years, Patricia “Pat” (nee Wagoner); his children Misti Schneider and Brenda (Larry) Pennock.  His dear grandchildren Jessica (Josh) Range and Dalton King. He also had two great-grandchildren: Myla and Evy Range. Also survived by his sister Marilyn Cox of Humboldt, TN. Larry was preceded in death by his parents, Clara (nee Oetjen) and Norbert Bierman, and sister Shirley Acton.

Born on May 16, 1938, in Murphysboro, Illinois, Larry grew up in Percy, Illinois.  He graduated from St. Mark’s in Steelville, Illinois.  Larry then served in the United States Air Force as a corporal.  Following military service, Larry worked for General Motors and then spent the remainder of his career at Union Electric Company (Ameren) as a pipefitter for many years before becoming an electrician.

Larry was a long-time member of St. John’s Lutheran Church in Arnold, Missouri. He was a man of integrity and deep faith.  Larry was a kind and gentle soul.  He was a friend to all who knew him.  Larry enjoyed the outdoors, especially his vegetable garden and fishing.  He was also an avid Cardinals fan and liked to play bingo.  He will be missed by many.

A very special thank you to Garden Place of Columbia, Oak Hill Nursing Home in Waterloo and Vitas Healthcare.  Their caring and kindness will never be forgotten.

  1. We were Larry and Pat’s neighbors in Imperial. Remember him happily riding his bike after he retired and going up to the gas station for coffee. Always had a wave and a smile. Sending our deepest sympathy to his family.
