Larry Walter Veitz, 59, entered into the presence of Jesus on November 4th, 2017. His tender-hearted devotion to his family, firm belief in God, contagious laughter, and strong, yet gracious work ethic will always be remembered.

On August 9th, 1958, Larry was born to Walter and Violet Veitz of Elgin, ND. He was a 1977 graduate of Elgin High School, and began his healthcare career with a diploma in Radiographic Sciences from Minot State University in 1980. Due to his desire to be in the best position to help and serve people, he continued his education at Moorhead State University, graduating with Bachelor of Science degrees in Business Administration and Finance. Larry worked as the president of the Spearfish and Belle Fourche markets for Regional Health. He actively served his community, both locally and nationally, with integrity and fidelity.

Larry was blessed with a large and loving family. He married his best friend, Rhonda Hochhalter, on April 1st, 1978, in Elgin, ND. Larry helped raise three children with patience, discipline, and humility. He invested in the interests of his children, supported and encouraged them, and set an immeasurable example of the love and grace of our Heavenly Father.

Larry found great joy in his grandchildren. He would delightedly spoil them whenever he got the chance. He enjoyed hunting, reading, golfing, traveling with Rhonda, and spending time with his family. Larry is dearly missed by his loved ones, who celebrate the fact that he is at peace with his Creator.

Larry is survived by his dear wife, Rhonda; his children, Michael (Suzanne) Veitz, Nicole (Jon) Ruprecht, and Shawn (Lindsay) Veitz; and, his grandchildren, Noël Veitz, Flara Veitz, Judah Veitz, Owen Ruprecht, Sawyer Ruprecht, Colin Ruprecht, Piper Ruprecht, Mason Veitz, and McKinley Veitz. He is also survived by his siblings, Ronald (Jane) Veitz, Cheryl Johnson, and Daryl (Brenda) Veitz; and his mother, Violet Veitz.

He was preceded in death by his father, Walter Veitz.
