Larry died suddenly of a heart attack in his home near Kooskia on December 30, 2021. He will be remembered for his quirky sense of humor, his amazing gardens and his generosity.
Larry was born in Grangeville, Idaho November 11, 1947 to William and Helen Telcher of Grangeville. Larry attended elementary and high school in Grangeville. After graduation, he went to the University of Idaho where he earned a degree in History.
Uncle Sam then came calling during the Vietnam war, and Larry was drafted into the Army where he served on the East coast and Okinawa. Southern Idaho soon became home after he finished his service as he was hired to teach in Wendell, and later Larry worked on dairy farms.
After receiving severe injuries in a car accident, Larry retired on disability and moved back to central Idaho. He lived a few years in Lewiston and then bought a place near Kooskia where he lived until his death. His proudest moment may have come in November 2019 when he was presented with a quilt of valor at the VFW hall in Kamiah.
He was preceded in death by his Father and Mother and is survived by sister Lynda Hinds (Charlie) of Camas, Washington, niece Michelle Cline (Dusty) of Graham, Washington, nephew Tim Hinds (Hillary) of Vancouver, Washington and adopted son Joe Cunningham (Julie) of Lewiston.
No service is planned but a family gathering will be held in the future to scatter ashes.
