Preceded in death by brother, Ronald. Survived by wife, Lois; children, Stephen, David (Lori) and Michele Mazanec; grandchildren, Marshall and Nicole Mazanec; Alessandro Venturi; sister-in-law, Barbara Mazanec.

Larry Mazanec was an outstanding athlete for St. Agnes High School, playing baseball, basketball, and football. He then went on to graduate from the College of St. Thomas with a degree in accounting and soon after became a CPA. He was a successful business owner, President of the Northern Dakota County Chamber of Commerce, and President of the Optimist Club. In his later years he became an avid golfer and tennis player. He was respected and admired by many.

Larry was also a loving and caring husband and father, providing well for his family and showing support for his children throughout his lifetime. He and his wife Lois were married for 53 years. Their love for each other shined most when they were on the dance floor together. He adored his three grandchildren and was very proud of their athleticism and musical talent. Those who knew him would say he was a kind, gentle man who was always able to find the good in everyone. Larry will be dearly missed by all.

    Larry held a special place in my memory. In the mid 2000’s I worked for a financial service company that worked with Larry’s practice. I remember a meeting that Larry had scheduled with clients whom he felt a close connection too. Larry gave me some priceless coaching before the meeting, guiding me to focusing on solutions, not problems. He was gifted at the art of conversation, and making sure all the people in the room were heard. This picture and his smile capture the Larry that I remember working with, and am grateful for the opportunity and knowledge he shared with me.
