Larry Franklin Santage was born in Spencer, Iowa on April 27, 1947, the son of Archie Lee and Margaret Mae (Merchant) Santage. He attended high school in Rolling Meadows, Illinois and graduated from Boone High School in 1965. He began his career in 1965 as a clerk with the Chicago Northwestern, later known as the Union Pacific Railroad Company. Both his father and grandfather worked for the railroad as well. He retired in 2007, after 42 years of service. On August 24, 1967, he enlisted in the US Navy Reserve. He served on the USS Enterprise for 14 months during the Vietnam War, and honorably until his discharge on June 30, 1972. On June 27, 1970, Larry married JoAnn Friedrichsen at Trinity Lutheran Church in Perry, Iowa. In his earlier years, Larry was an avid fisherman and hunter. He enjoyed being outside and being a practical joker. Most of all, he enjoyed spending time with his family.

He is preceded in death by his parents. Larry is survived by his wife, JoAnn, of Treynor; two daughters, Alisa Marie Beary and husband, John, of Ames and Kelly Jo Santage of Woodward; two grandsons, Brennan and Jameson Beary; and three sisters, Sharon Steele and husband, Roy, of Grapevine, Texas, Becky Myers and her husband, Steve, of Boone, and Ronna Conrad of Pueblo, Colorado.
