Larry Dennis Felcher was born July 5, 1958, to Larry and Lavonne (Jaqua) Felcher in Sioux Falls, SD. He was one of seven children and was raised and educated through the eighth grade. Larry began working almost immediately. On April 17, 1976 he married Vicki Nordstrom in Sioux Falls. In 1978, Larry became a welder at Egger Steel. In 1992, he tried his hand at his own business in welding. In 1994, Larry was offered and took the position at Huset’s Speedway as the Track Prep Supervisor which he did until 2008, when he had to quit due to health issues.

Larry was a major outdoorsman and racing enthusiast. He loved to hunt deer and pheasants as well as play hard in the dirt. Larry raced snowmobiles, cars, monster trucks, built his own truck for truck pulls and participated in demolition derbies. His children recall going to snow machine races early on with their dad, having to eat peanut butter sandwiches and cheering him on.

Larry will be deeply missed by his wife, Vicki, of Brandon; his children, Jeremy (Julie) Felcher, Sioux Falls, Annalis (Vicki) Felcher, Brandon, and Lorenza (Everett) Robinson, Brandon; five grandchildren, Abby, Keisha, Dandre, Fantasia, and Tyler Felcher; and six brothers & sisters, Carlotta (Claire) Colby, Danny Felcher, Barb Felcher, Jackie Felcher, Audrey Felcher, and Earl Felcher, all of Sioux Falls.

Larry was preceded in death by his parents.

    Family and friends of Larry,
    Larry was like his Dad…very skilled in the trades. Life goes by, so fast, but I still cherish the times Larry worked with me on Carpentry projects. Working with metal was his forte. I’m sure there are many people that were glad to see him arrive to fix things for them. Though his life seems too brief..I believe Larry fulfilled God’s purposes for his earthly voyage. Cherish your memories of him and confort one another..til you meet again…Beyond the Sunset.

    Uncle Terry
