Larry Bambas

October 13, 1945 — October 27, 2020

Larry Bambas was born October 13, 1945 to Charles and Mary (Vellek) Bambas at Tyndall. Due to his special needs at birth, Larry was taught life lessons on the family farm. Larry was responsible for picking eggs and riding his bicycle to get the mail. Larry was able to stay on his own at the home place and in town until health issues forced him to go to the Tyndall Good Samaritan Home. He quickly adapted to his life at the nursing home due to the great care and attention he received from the staff.
Larry’s love for Elvis Presley could not be matched. He would listen for hours to his Elvis albums and loved to dance like Elvis.
Larry was noted for eating breakfast before bed so he could sleep in. Over the years Larry gave and received many hugs from all his family and friends. Larry had a good, healthy life due in part from all the attention received from his family, who loved him dearly.
Larry Bambas, age 75, of Tyndall, passed away Tuesday, October 27, 2020 at the Tyndall Good Samaritan Center. The person recorded as living the longest with Down syndrome was 78 years of age.
Larry is survived by sisters Maxine Kronaizl of Tyndall, Marilyn Kortan of Yankton and Eileen Kappenman of Selah, Washington; a host of nieces and nephews.
Larry was preceded in death by his parents Charles and Mary; sisters Betty Shelman and Melva Sutera and brother Charles.
