Larry Louis Koller, 84, of Grand Junction, transitioned on May 25, 2022, after a short and unexpected illness.
Larry was predeceased by his loving wife Rosemary, and sons Kirk and Roger. He is survived by his sons Brent Koller, wife Helen Rose and John Maybon, daughter Shawna Maybon, and granddog Simo.
Dad was a “Phone Man” for 42 years with Mountain Bell. After retiring he and mom saw the world together via Royal Caribbean & Holland America cruise lines.
He enjoyed riding along on Jeep trips including Black Bear Road, Gateway to Moab, Fisher Valley, Onion Creek, and Fins & Things. He also willingly floated with us down the Colorado river a few times on our little raft.
Embrace those you love fiercely and long. Our time on this earth is too short.
“I was a highwayman
Along the coach roads I did ride
With sword and pistol by my side
Many a young maid lost her baubles to my trade
Many a soldier shed his lifeblood on my blade
The bastards hung me in the spring of '25
But I am still alive
I was a sailor
I was born upon the tide
With the sea I did abide
I sailed a schooner 'round the Horn to Mexico
I went aloft to furl the mainsail in a blow
And when the yards broke off they said that I got killed
But I am living still
I was a dam builder
Across the river deep and wide
Where steel and water did collide
A place called Boulder on the wild Colorado
I slipped and fell into the wet concrete below
They buried me in that great tomb that knows no sound
But I am still around
I'll always be around, and around and around
And around and around and around and around
I'll fly a starship
Across the Universe divide
And when I reach the other side
I'll find a place to rest my spirit if I can
Perhaps I may become a highwayman again
Or I may simply be a single drop of rain
But I will remain
And I'll come back again, and again
And again and again and again and again
