We are so sorry to hear of the death of Larry Sharken. We are friends of the Sharken Simon family in Minneapolis and were able to meet Larry at the family cabin and at Judy and Chris's home. How great to see the strong family connections he and his wife created. Our condolences to all the family members for the loss of a wonderful man. The Mikks

It is sad to hear my American dad Larry had passed away due to Covid 19. He has been such friendly and caring elder to me since I came to the States in 1985. He had provided strong support to me during the most difficult times and have been so kind to me and my family in the later years. We will remember dad and grandpa forever.
