Larry Stephenson

Larry E. Stephenson, 65, of Sigourney, passed away on Monday, Sept. 7, 2020 at the University of Iowa Hospitals, surrounded by his family, following a brief illness.

Larry was born on Feb. 28, 1955, in Oskaloosa, to Robert and Janice (Derby) Stephenson. He attended English Valley High School. Larry spent most of his career driving a semi where he earned the nickname, ‘Budweiser’. Larry enjoyed fishing, spending time with his grandchildren, and his beloved dog, Peewee.

Larry is survived by his children: Megan (Brian) Mallie of Stanwood and Bryan Stephenson of Sigourney; two grandchildren: Kamryn Coppess and Lennox Stephenson; and bonus daughter: Holly Van Voltenburg and her sons, Corran and Liam, of Sigourney. Larry is also survived by five sisters: Brenda Lown of Webster, Peggy (Duane) VanDee of North English, Cathy (Ron) Fry of Sigourney, Rhonda Hibler of Oskaloosa, Dana Aubrecht of Nichols, and many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents, spouse LeAnn Davis, and brother Robert Alan Stephenson.

Larry has selflessly donated his body to the University of Iowa for education and medical research. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
