Larry Gale Barber, age 76, died peacefully at his home in Moorhead, MN on Sunday, July 19.

Larry was born and raised in Granite Falls, MN. He graduated from Concordia College. He then spent his adult life in Fergus Falls, MN before moving to Moorhead, MN in his retirement.

He will also be remembered for his involvement in the Boy Scouts of America, serving as an Assistant Scoutmaster and later as a Scoutmaster for Troop 305 of Fergus Falls while his sons were in Boy Scouts.

He is survived by his wife, Arlene Barber of Moorhead; his son Brett and his wife, Natsuki, and their son, Kai of Medway, MA; his son Scott and his wife, Kara, and their daughters, Sophia and Eliza of Moorhead; and his son Trever of Moorhead. He is also survived by his siblings James Barber and his wife, Diane of Granite Falls; Eleanor Erickson and her husband, Myron of Granite Falls; Sandra Rader of Minneapolis; and Dennis Barber and his wife, Cathy of East Peoria, IL.
