Larry made his living as a grain and livestock farmer in the Wheaton/Dumont MN area until he retired. After his retirement from farming, you could still find him driving tractors, spending time at the farm and teaching his grandchildren all about the farm life.  Larry enjoyed spending time with his family, farming, hunting, fishing and making others laugh with his many stories.  He especially loved to tell his grandchildren stories of his hunting days when he was better known by his nickname, “Bullets”.

Larry is survived by his son, Joey (Jackie) Wilt of Dumont, MN; Daughter Jolene (Jay) Hammer of Gardner, ND; grandchildren: Kalai (Jon) Brink of Dumont, MN; Karly (Cody) Hassler of Fargo, ND; Megan and Alley Wilt of Dumont, MN; Karissa Hammer of Gardner, ND; great-grandchildren: Jaxton Brink of Dumont, MN.

Larry was preceded in death by his parents Agnes and Lawrence Wilt; wife of 37 years, Judy Wilt; sister Anna (Vern) Kraus; and brother Clifford Wilt.
