It is with heavy hearts that we announce the loss of our loving husband, father, grandpa, brother, and friend Larry D. Atkinson at age 80. He was born in Treasureton, Idaho on December 1, 1938 to Von and Vera Atkinson.

They were truly soulmates and blessed the lives with all that associated with them. Larry had no biological children, but Jackie's children, Brad Wacaster and Brandy (Wacaster) Heindl, loved him and adopted him as a bonus dad. He loved them like his own and was an amazing grandpa to their children. He made all 11 grandkids feel special and know they were loved.
