There will be no public visitation. However, all are welcome to the Celebration of Larry’s life on Saturday October 16, 2021 at Sacred Heart Cemetery at 10:30 am. with Rev. James Bump officiating. Military rites will be accorded by the U.S. Army Funeral Honor Guard and the Bentleyville American Legion Post #165. Following the services all family and friends are invited for a picnic at the Bertovich Farm in Bentleyville. All are welcome. In lieu of flowers, the family respectfully requests donations be made to the Washington County Humane Society in Eighty-Four, PA.

To George, Carl, Danny, Paul and the Kubincanek family. Sorry for your loss of your brother. I didn't know Larry very well but the conversations I did have with him was very nice. I will remember him sitting in the chair under the tree and looking out over the farm.

I am so sorry for your loss. Larry was a wonderful gentle man. I remember him from St Clements School and his days as an altar boy at St Luke's -both places just sweet memories now. He worked hard, at the farm and delivering milk and at the milk store. May be walk among the stars and sit on sun beams.
