Larry with Leroy Butler

As a committee member and now board member of the 82 Project Foundation, I am honored to serve our community and give back to WFBHS where I learned life’s lessons.  Being a part of this wonderful organization and watching it grow every year is an amazing experience.  Our board and committee members do such a great job and I am honored to be working with them side by side and getting reacquainted with faces I never really knew that well in high school.

After graduating from WFBHS, our family relocated for a short time to Las Vegas and we eventually moved back to Wisconsin.

Class of 82 Ice Sculpture

It was then I realized my passion was food service.  I attended MATC West Campus and continuing education classes at the Culinary Institute in Hyde Park New York while working in various restaurants, clubs, and hotels.  There I became fluent in ice sculpting and pursued a side business and Vanishing Art Ice Sculpting was born.

In 1990, I married my wife Sheri, as well as started a career in health care food service.  I have been in middle management since that time and now work for Aurora Health Care at the Zilber Family Hospice.  It is a beautiful facility and I have the honor of managing the food service, housekeeping, & plant operations departments.

Lauren, Larry, Sheri and Ian


Sheri and I have 2 children, Lauren 25, & Ian 21.  Both are working hard pursuing careers in Law Enforcement.  Sheri and I will celebrate 27 years of marriage this year and look forward to 27 more!
