Larry Killian was one of the finest men I've ever met. He was a tremendous asset to our charity , the SCV. He was also a great friend. His deep faith and goodness made everyone better. The Lord makes very few men as good as Larry Killian. His passing in a huge loss. He will be missed by everyone that had the privilege of knowing him.

I was shocked to learn of Larry's passing. I last saw him at the Adams Family Reunion at Macedonia Lutheran Church. Ettie and my mother were first cousins (Ruth Adams Thomas). Also Larry grew up in Joanna as did I. I know he is in a much better place with those family members who have gone before him, but most of all his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He will be greatly missed by those he left behind. Prayers for the family.

I am heart sick at the loss of such a fine man who lived his convictions. He was an asset to his community, family, and church. As a lay servant he spoke at my church many times. I will miss him.
