Larry D. Volmert, 69, of Washington, passed away on Thursday, August 22, 2019, at Mercy Hospital in Washington. He was born on March 19, 1950, in Washington to the late Raymond and Frieda (nee Click) Volmert. Larry was united in marriage to Janice Gumpenberger on April 3, 1971, at St. Gertrude Catholic Church in Krakow. Insurance was the perfect career for Larry and he enjoyed connecting people with the appropriate insurance to make sure that their needs were met. He often joined a group at Hardee’s in the morning for coffee, and most recently, a gathering on the patio at Cedarcrest to chat. He liked to keep discussions interesting and enjoyed the company of others. He was a self-proclaimed outdoorsman who loved to spend time with his wife, children, and grandchildren.
