Larry Dean Douglass was born February 19, 1948, in Loup City, NE to Jerold and Jacqueline (Hofer) Douglass. Larry grew up on the Ranch south of Brewster. Larry attended and graduated from Brewster High School in 1966. After high school, Larry started at Grand Island School of Business, but then was drafted into the Army January 11, 1967, and was honorably discharged December 22, 1968.

Larry was united in marriage March 8, 1969, to Donna Guggenmos in Ainsworth, NE. Larry worked for Meat Animal Research Center in Clay Center. Then the couple returned to Brewster working for several ranchers. In 1971 Larry went to work with his father on the ranch. Plus, he managed the Monahan Ranch east of Brewster for several years. Larry and Donna were blessed with three children Terrence November 15, 1969, Clinton July 29, 1976, and Holly January 6, 1985. Larry retired in 2015 moving to their current location south of Brewster.

In his spare time Larry enjoyed watching sports on TV as well as listening to his grandson’s games on the radio. He also enjoyed going to cattle and farm sales and brandings. Larry loved to tell stories – sometimes slightly embellished. His family and friends will miss his dry/ornery sense of humor.

Larry was a member of the Brewster Volunteer Fire Department and American Legion Post #323.

Larry is survived by his wife Donna of Brewster, son Terry (Donna) Douglass of Grand Island, daughter Holly (Rich) Kennedy of Oshkosh, five grandsons: Brooks, Broc, Bo, Brady, and Hunter, sister Linda (Carol) Conard of Burwell, sister-in-law Bridget Douglass of Broken Bow, Uncle Vance (Jan) Douglass of Ashby, Aunt Dorothy Douglass of North Platte, numerous nieces, and nephews.

Larry was preceded in death by his parents Jerold and Jacqueline, son Clinton, and brother Steve Douglass.
