Larry was born October 14, 1940 in Tehachapi, CA to the late George and the late Pauline Marigold. Larry earned an AA from Contra Costa College, a BS in Business Administration and Management from the University of San Francisco and an MBA in International Marketing from Golden Gate University. He also did post graduate studies in Risk Analysis at the University of Pennsylvania, Wharton School. Larry began his career at Chevron Research, then became the Vice President of Sales and Marketing of Unigas in Denver Colorado. He became the Manager of two Unical subsidiaries, WH Barber and Amsco Fuel Oil. Later in his career he was the Director of Energy, Planning and Development for Anheuser-Busch, Director and Corporate Representative of Anheuser-Busch, Energy Consultant for the State of California, and eventually President and CEO of Marigold Ventures Inc.

Larry served in the National Guard, was on the Board of Golden Gate University and the Pet Network in Incline Village, and was a member of CERT in Incline Village. Larry loved to race his '66 GT40 and 2015 Z06 Corvette. He also enjoyed taking his '66 GT40 to shows, and was awarded an entire room of trophies. Larry also enjoyed fishing, watching Formula 1 racing and spending time with his dogs. A man with a dry sense of humor, Larry could tell a great joke. He was considered a man's man, and a "real cool dude" amongst his peers, fun to spar with. He is survived by his wife of 41 years, Julie Marigold. Services were private. Contributions in Larry's memory may be directed to MD Anderson Cancer Center.
