Larry Dean Pinkelman

May 19, 1939 — November 5, 2022

Stansbury Park

Larry Dean Pinkelman, age 83, of Stansbury Park, Utah, died Saturday evening, November 5, 2022 surrounded by his family at his home. Born May 19, 1939, in Wynot, Nebraska, he was the son of the late Bruno Pinkelman and Elizabeth “Lizbet” (Backman) Pinkelman. He was the youngest of 10 children born to Bruno and Lizbet.

He served in the U.S. military. While stationed in Los Angeles, California, he met his beautiful bride and devoted wife of 61years, Nancy Karen (Charles) Pinkelman. They married on September 2, 1961 in Granada Hills, California. They ultimately had 5 children together, daughters: Carol, Nan, Natalie, and Carrie; and son, Bob. Larry is survived by his loving wife Karen; daughters: Carol, Nan, Natalie; son: Bob; 9 Grandchildren and 4 Great Grandchildren.

Larry began a very active and long carrier as a fire fighter in Sante Fe Springs, California fire department. He went on many calls and saved numerous lives. Often his work bled into his personal life, where he seemed to be available 24/7 to help those in need, even saving his own daughter Natalie. Apart from his work in the department, Larry enjoyed hunting, riding dirt bikes in the California desert, and fishing with his children whenever he had time. Family road trips were essential. Each year they would take a month and drive around the United States, often following historical roads and pioneer trails. An avid historian, he often narrated the road trips, stopping at every historical marker and sensationally talking with whoever would listen.Him and his wife had visited every state in the United States. Every 5 years the family would pack up and head east to his hometown of Wynot, Nebraska to visit relatives and attend his high school reunion. He was on the basketball team at Wynot High School and was one of 7 students at the graduating class of 1957.

Funeral services will be held at 10am, Saturday, November 19, 2022 at the Latter Day Saint church 323 East Erda Way, Erda, Utah 84074. The burial will follow soon after at Stansbury Park Cemetery.
