Larry was born January 20th, 1942 in Minneapolis, MN. The son of Lawrence and Sidonia Invie, Larry was the younger of two children (sister Sandra “Sandy”).  He graduated from Robbinsdale High School in 1960 and studied Art and Education at St. Cloud State University, where he met the love of his love, Patricia Halstead.  Larry and Pat wed August 22nd, 1964 after both graduating from SCSU with teaching degrees. Shortly after, they moved to Eagle River, Wisconsin where they started their teaching careers, Larry as an art teacher. They were both involved in and loved camp counseling at Towering Pines Camp. After becoming pregnant with their first child, Chad Thomas, Larry and Pat moved to Paynesville, Minnesota to start their family and continue their teaching careers. A few years later they welcomed their second child, Heather Noelle. Larry followed his heart and changed careers in 1975 when the family purchased Cold Spring Floral where he became a florist. Larry was a very talented artist and became a staple in the community, sharing beautiful flowers with the city of Cold Spring and surrounding area. He found great hobbies in the care and keeping of Bonsai trees, working in his wood shed, landscaping, the occasional watercolor painting, lake activities with his family, and attending concerts. When Larry heartbreakingly lost his wife Pat to cancer in 1993, he moved to the lake house in northern Minnesota, and then followed his heart to Hawaii where he lived for 10 years. Following health issues, Larry returned to Cold Spring in 2013 where he found joy in garage sale-ing, caring for his dog and gardening.

Larry is survived by his children, Chad (Kristie) of Moorhead, daughter Heather of Enumclaw, WA, grandchildren, Griffin, Grant, Kenzie, and Kylee, and sister Sandra Fernandez of Maple Grove. He is preceded in death by his beautiful wife, Patricia, and his parents.

Larry was the mentor, teacher and the reason I am where I am today. He taught me the love of floral design and was my cheerleader to be whatever I wanted to be in life. Thus now I own the shop in Albany that he and Pat started back in 1981. He came to see the shop and visit me about a year ago. So happy he was proud of what I have become. "thanks for the memories Larry" Will always be thankful for the day we met. (and you teaching me to drive a stick shift!) Hug Pat in heaven for us all!
