Larry Roder – Metz Mortuary

    Larry Roder
    Larry Gene Roder, age 60 of Missouri Valley, IA passed away peacefully June 25, 2018 at his home. He was born October 31, 1957 to Derald C. and Sharyn (Meyer)Roder in Neligh, NE.

    Throughout the years Larry worked for Batterton Waterproofing and York Cold Storage. He enjoyed sitting on the bank of a lake or river trying to catch “the big one.” He also loved the company of his small dog Cujo.
    On March 29, 1980, Larry was married to Janet Kolar. To this union a son was born, Chad Nathaniel.

    Larry is survived by his very special caring, kind and compassionate companion Renee Larsen of Missouri Valley; sons Chad (Marilou) and their children, Rachelle, Leilani and Alexander of Lacey, WA., Josh of San Antonio, TX,  Jordan and children David, Ginger, Ava and Ian all of San Antonio, TX and  daughter Sara Lindemen and children Grace, Alexander and Rebeca all of Hastings, NE.

    Other survivors include his brother Gary (Shirlie) Roder of Alda, NE, and his sister Tammy (Pat) Swantek of Grafton, NE, along with many nieces and nephews. Preceding him in death were his parents and his brother Duane.

    Private graveside services will be held at a later date in the Pleasant Ridge Cemetery, southeast of McCool Junction. It was Larry’s wish to be cremated so there will be no viewing or visitation. Memorials may be directed to his family for later designation.
