On April 28, 1963, Larry Owen Lummus, was born to Ike and Barbara Lummus in Bakersfield, California. After living in Bakersfield, the Lummus family moved to Duncanville, Texas and numerous other locations throughout the U.S. Luck had it that one day Larry was taking a trip through Iowa and had a flat tire in Atlantic. He never left after that day! Making a life for himself Larry soon met Anna Petty; they were married in 1997.

Larry was an avid biker and thoroughly enjoyed taking his black Harley Davidson on trips to various bike rallies throughout Iowa and surrounding states. His favorite event was the annual ABATE of Iowa Freedom rally held in Algona each year which led him to become part of the ABATE Motorcycle Club. When he wasn’t riding, he could often be found camping with his wife, family and friends. Larry was also a tattoo artist and opened his shop in Atlantic where he inked many decorative tattoo’s seen today. But his love was ultimately spending time with his wife, family, Chewy his dog and many other beloved pets.
