A graveside service was held on Tuesday, April 30 at Oak Lawn Memorial Park in Corvallis.

his snear

He was a man of few words and often answered you with a simple grunt. His snear was his trademark. He always kept you wondering if he was pleased or unhappy with you. More often than not, he was pleased. ;)

He will be deeply missed by all those who loved him!


We want to express our sincere thanks to those people who have contacted us over the last month with their prayers, words of encouragement and friendship at the passing of our husband, father, and grandfather, Larry Rictor.   He was happy to help anyone who needed it yet rarely asked for any help himself.

While he has left us for a time, we know he still watches us, celebrates our successes and shares the pain of our hurt.

Thanks to all of you for honoring him and recognizing his impact on our lives.

His wife, sons, and family members.
