Lawrence “Larry” Smith, 82, of Rothschild, passed away July 23, 2022, at Aspirus Riverview Hospital, Wisconsin Rapids with his loving wife at his side.
Lawrence was born September 7, 1939, in Rothschild to parents John and Lucy (Becker) Smith. He served in the Army National Guard for seventeen years as a mess sergeant and marksman/sharpshooter, and he was a faithful employee of LignoTech for many years until his retirement at the age of 70. Lawrence enjoyed hunting, fishing, and being outdoors, working in the garden and in his many flowerbeds. He made joyful family memories up north on Bluegill Lake. Lawrence was a proud Papa to his beloved grandchildren and great grandchildren, and he was happiest when joking with them and sharing in their laughter.
Lawrence is survived by his wife Marilyn; children Kimberly (Keith) Rosenow and Klint (Jessa) Smith; grandchildren Derryk Clark, Dustyn Smith, Kyrianna Smith, and Adria Smith; and great-grandchildren Jeremiah, Athena, and Blake; sisters-in-law, Sharon Smith, Joanne (Donald) Smith, and Carol Shaw; and brother-in-law Floyd Goytowski.
He is preceded in death by his parents, John and Lucy, mother- and father-in-law Raymond and Renetta (Kostus) Shaw; brother Wayne Smith, sisters Geraldine (Albert) Pregont and Kathleen (Neil) Spatz, brother-in-law Donald Shaw and sister-in-law Debra (Goytowski) Robl; and one grandson, Dyllan Smith.
