Obituary of Larry N. Amick

Larry Neil Amick, 80, of Greeley, passed away peacefully on September 23, 2022 at UC Health in Greeley.  He was born February 10, 1942 in Keenesburg, Colorado to Leroy and Irma (Sloan) Amick.  He grew up in Keenesburg and graduated from Keenesburg High School in 1960.  He received his Associate Degree from Aim’s Community College and served in the United States Army.  On September 3, 1971 he married his wife of 51 years, Colleen Schrader, in Loveland, CO. They moved to Burlington CO, where they had two daughters: Jody Lynn and Kimberly Ann.

Larry worked for Sperry New Holland for 20 years and with B&G Equipment for 17 years before retiring.  While working for Sperry, the family lived in various states across the USA. This included Colorado, Idaho, Tennessee, Nevada, and Oregon. In 1982, they returned to Burlington and resided there for 9 years before relocating to Greeley where he eventually retired.

Larry was a lifelong Denver Bronco’s fan and eventually started enjoying the Rockies. He loved playing pinocle with his cousins and golfing with numerous friends throughout the years. His true passion, however, was spending time with his family; especially his 8 grandchildren.

Larry had many friends and was truly an incredible person.  He loved to laugh and had a wicked sense of humor. He was also a devoted husband and father; he would do anything for his loved ones, and he proved that time and time again. He will be deeply missed by many, but his legacy will live on.

Larry is survived by his wife Colleen of Greeley; his daughters, Jody Rothe and husband Terry of Greeley and Kimberly Amick and significant other Travis Franz of Severance; his grandchildren,  Hannah Rothe of Kansas City, Missouri, Nathan Rothe of Fort Collins, Michael Rothe of Greeley, Adalyn Rothe of Greeley, Gracyn McCoy of Greeley, Samantha McCoy of Greeley, Chelsea McCoy of Severance, and Paisley Cody of Severance; his sister JoAnne Amick of Greeley, and numerous cousins, nieces, and nephews. He was proceeded in death by his parents and his sister, Judy Amick.

Per Larry’s wishes, private family services will be held at a later date.  Memorial contributions may be made to the Grief Resource Center in care of Adamson Life Celebration Home, 2000 W. 47th Ave., Greeley, CO  80634.
