Larry Alan Worley was born on May 12, 1935 in Monte Vista, Colorado.


[from Mildred Worley's journal] "My Dad and Mom came to visit one day. Larry was about three years old. He had one of his Daddy’s old pipes in his mouth, upside down. He was squatting by a piece of machinery, inspecting it. When he came in the house, he was all agog to tell Grandma and Grandpa something. A sheep had died and Jim [Cunningham] had skinned it. Larry’s version, ‘The sheep died and died and died, and we peeled it and hung the peeling on the fence.’ He called them ‘Dammer’ and ‘Dampoo’. They loved it."


Larry lived his life in the San Luis Valley. He graduated from Sargent High School in 1951, and attended Colorado A&M a short while. He returned to the Valley and ranched with his father for a while. He married Phoebe Darrington, November 26, 1959, and they had two sons. Larry owned and operated Monte’s Frame Shop in Monte Vista for several years. He married Betty Johnson Lira December 13, 1975. Larry enjoyed hunting, fishing traveling and woodworking.


Larry Alan Worley died February 9, 1987 of heart complications.
