Larry Steven Vais, age 60, of Pingree Grove, passed away on December 7, 2020. He was born May 14, 1960 in Oak Park, IL to Steve and Cecilia Vais.
Larry was known as a beloved Brother, Father, Uncle, Great Uncle, Godfather, and Best Friend who will forever be missed.
As a professor at Harper College, Larry found joy in teaching countless students over the years with passion and patience. When he wasn’t shaping future minds at the front of the classroom, he was fishing, listening to music, playing poker, and inviting in new and old friends with his energy and infectious friendly personality.
Larry rode off in peace on his Harley Davidson with the wind in his hair, in pain no more, and we take comfort knowing he has reunited with his mom, dad, and his best buddy, Timber.
May you Rest eternally in Peace.
The family asks during this holiday season to please perform a random act of kindness or pay it forward in Larry’s memory.
A private memorial will be held at his final resting place.
