Lawrence J. “Larry” Kabela age 78 of Rensselaer passed away Tuesday March 12, 2019 at the Rensselaer Care Center. Larry was born on April 24, 1940 in Solon Iowa son of Otto and Agnes (Buchmayer) Kabela. Larry grew up in Iowa and graduated with a bachelors degree from Iowa State University.

Larry worked for USDA as a Federal Meat Inspector for 37 years. While working for the USDA he and his family lived in many locations around the United States. After retirement he worked as a greeter for Walmart for a short period.

Larry was a good Christian man and husband and father. He loved to help people out and was a praying man that loved his Lord with all his heart. He never failed to watch John Hagge every Sunday and enjoyed watching sporting events on television. Also he enjoyed feeding the birds, rabbits and the squirrels at his home. Larry truly enjoyed going to Anytime Fitness in Rensselaer.

Larry is survived by his loving wife of 54 years Susie and one son Allen Kabela (wife Nathalie). Also surviving is one sister: Darlene Brant and two brothers:
