Obituary for Larry J. Kamish
Larry James Kamish died October 30, 2008, at his home. He was 62 years old. Larry was born May 28th, 1946, in St. Croix Falls, WI, to James and Julia Kamish. He was baptized and confirmed at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Centuria, WI. Larry graduated from Unity High School in 1964. After graduation, his first job was as a welder for Champion Aircraft. Larry went on to work at Certified Stainless Steele in the Twin Cities. It was during his employment with Certified Stainless Steele that Larry began carpooling with James Christensen, and through this association Larry met and began dating Sandy Christensen, his future bride. Larry and Sandy were married March 22, 1969, at St. John’s Lutheran Church. Larry went on to work for Axel Newmann Plumbing and Heating from1969 – 1989 Larry’s lifelong joys included spending time and sharing laughter with his family and friends, all things racing, and he also spent countless hours with his dad working with tractors and other equipment. He would rather be there than anywhere. Heavy equipment and excavating was one of his passions. This passion led him to start up his own excavating business in 1979, LJD Excavating, which he continued to work until his death. One of his other great passions was the time he spent caring for and playing with the children at Sandy’s Family Daycare. Many of the children referred to him as “Papa” and he loved each of them dearly. Larry was preceded in death by his parents, James and Julia Kamish; sister, Betty (Harlan) Erickson; infant brother, Baby Kamish; and father-in-law, James A. Christensen. Larry is survived by his wife of 39 years, Sandy; sons, Kim (Traci) Kamish and Kevin Kamish; daughter, Kelly (Wayne) Bakke; grandchildren, Evan, Nicholas, Nathan and Alexa Kamish and Larysa and Keegan Bakke; sisters, Beverly (Nobi) Hashmi, Eleanor (John) Bleyle, Donna (Gordon) Best and Jean Brown; brother, Donald (Nancy) Kamish; many nieces, nephews and friends.
