Larry Strobel was the life of the party, and entertainer of the moment with his magnificent voice. Fun-loving, creative, and smart, he worked on several inventions and was great at handy work. But his passion was singing and playing guitar. I met Larry in Issaquah in 1998. We rented a room to him as he was recovering from a severe motorcycle racing accident. He started performing at open mics and hanging out with other musicians. My friends and I were his first avid fans. After he met and married the love of his life, Kim, it was the happiest I’d ever seen him. He joined rock and roll bands soon becoming a local celebrity. As years went on, audience anticipation was high and he didn’t disappoint. He drew crowds at Issaquah Salmon Days. Larry enjoyed a big stage and dressing the part. My favorite: his shoes with the water & (toy) fish in the soles. After my husband Rick and I moved to Spokane in 2008, we were delighted whenever Larry and Kim visited. He made a big jaw-dropping impression in (quiet) Spokane every time he performed with Rick’s band. Larry also loved playing (in a more mellow fashion) at local coffee shops. But what he loved most were his regular gigs for some Veterans in the Tacoma area. The last time I saw Larry perform was August 30, 2019 at Black Gold Coffee in Black Diamond at an open mic. He was so popular that evening, other musicians asked him to play and sing with them. He gave from his heart to all of us with every performance. Peace and Love to you, Larry. I am grateful for the many happy memories yet you are greatly missed. I believe your soul soars high on its new musical stage in Heaven.
