Obituary of Larry Edward Sellers
Larry E Sellers, 84, formerly of Hazelton, Idaho died peacefully at home on May 27, 2019 with family by his side. He was born in Jerome, Idaho to Frank and Alta (Prentice) Sellers. The family moved to Hazelton where he started his schooling. In 4th grade his family moved back to Jerome where he finished his education. At the age of 16 Larry started working for the canal company in Hazelton. Two years later he was hired by Barlow’s warehouse in Hazelton where he established many lifelong friendships. While at Barlow’s Larry married the love of his life, Ruth Ann Murphy. Over the next eight years they had five children: Larry, Peggy Jo, Carolyn, Dana and Bart. Larry’s most satisfying work was farming, so in 1963 he left Barlow’s and started farming on his own which he continued to do until he retired.
