Larry was born to Lee and Marie Fett on January 6, 1941 in Algoma, Wis. As a young man of 20 he came to Alaska with his dad and brother, Tom in 1961 in a converted school bus (camper) and homesteaded adjoining acreage at MP 1417 of the Alaska Hwy.
Larry, along with his siblings became involved with the family farming business, agricultural tours, as well as working in construction. He was an excellent carpenter. His real passion was time spent on his trap lines in Alaska’s wilderness. He searched for rare gems and created beautiful jewelry.
Larry enjoyed the simple life – one of a pioneer consciousness, hunting, trapping, fishing, and berry picking. He had an active role with the local Fish and Game as well as interest local borough matters.
