Larry's life was taken from him on April 15, 2017. He leaves a legacy of three beautiful children: Larry Edwin Van Dolah III, Allie M. Van Dolah, Kaylee M. Plahn.
Larry worked very hard in his life including owner of a Masonry business in Bellevue, Washington, owner of a construction company in Columbia County, Oregon and finishing his career with one of his life's passion, the Marijuana business being the first in St. Helens, Oregon to open medical and recreational store front and grow operation. He would take the shirt off his back to help people, whether they were family, friends, or complete strangers that just needed a little help. The challenges and obstacles in his life couldn't compare to his passion and desire to be the best at everything he put his mind too.
Larry led a great life that consisted of his loving family and friends. There isn't a single person that came around that wasn't touched in some way shape or form, especially with his contagious smile. His passion was spending time with his son LJ, his nephew Evan (who referred to him as Uncle Bob), and his best friend and brother, Anton.
