Larry  Pelton

May 16, 1944 — June 5, 2016

Larry Pelton was born on May 16, 1944 to Wayne and Viola (Deurmier) Pelton in Avon, South Dakota. He graduated from Avon High School in 1962. On July 10, 1970, Larry was united in marriage to Charmaine Muller in Avon.
Throughout his life, Larry was a hard worker with a strong work ethic. For several years, he drove a dairy truck out of Mitchell and would pick milk up from local producers. He also worked for David Dystra at Dyke’s Station in Avon. In 1978, Larry received his official sales tax license and was able to open his own tire business, Larry’s Service. For 38 years, Larry was devoted to providing efficient, quality work at affordable rates for his ever increasing crowd of customers. He was known far and wide for the work he did, such as fixing leaks, selling new and used tires, and replacing and mounting tires. His work was trusted and his customers appreciative. Larry became a friend to everybody.
Larry was knowledgeable and interested in many subjects. He loved fishing and hunting. He was proud of his large gun collection and continually added to it. He enjoyed Clint Eastwood movies and watching sports. He was also a dedicated, uncompromising Chevy man.
Though Larry suffered from illness for the past couple years, he never wanted to complain. His family finds comfort that one week prior to his passing, he received the Salvation message of the Christian faith. On Sunday, June 5, 2016, at the age of 72, Larry was welcomed into Heaven.
He is survived and remembered by his wife of nearly 46 years, Charmaine Pelton of Avon; sisters: Evelyn Knoll of Tyndall, Myrtle Reiff of Avon, Betty (Lawrence) Sandau of Tripp, and Carol (Lattie) Draughon of Springfield; brother Ron (Linda) Pelton of Avon; sister-in-law Judy Pelton; and several nieces, nephews, and cousins.
He was preceded in death by his parents, brothers Calvin “Charlie” Pelton and Don Pelton, and brothers-in-law Edgar “Curly” Knoll and Ray Reiff.
“Truly, Truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes Him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgement, but has passed from death to life.” ~ John 5:24
