  1. Larry was an extremely gifted and talented man. For as long as I had known him, he was always working on a project, mainly the Hondo house. 🙂 I liked Larry, he was always nice to me. He welcomed me into his home and took the time to have conversations with me. Larry was his own man with his own ideas and I loved that about him. When he smiled, he had a twinkle in his eye. I am so very sorry for your loss, I know he will be missed!

  2. Our love and thoughts are with the family. Lots of memories of Larry. Tom & Polly Brumfield

  3. I first met Larry while I was working at the College of Architecture as the Promotion and Development Coordinator. Right from the start Larry and I hit it off. He was the most enthusiastic volunteer that I could have worked with helping get his former classmates to participate and donate to any of the projects we collaborated on. I always enjoyed it when Larry stopped by my office for a visit and sometimes he would share one of his many stories from his time at A&M.
    Larry will definitely be missed, and I am honored to have know him, and had the opportunity to work with him. God Bless all his family.

  4. Dear Roberta and all the Priesmeyer family

    Our sincere condolences to your entire family on the passing of Larry.

    We have known Larry for almost 52 years. What I liked best about Larry was his ability to tell a story. He could take any experience and spin it into a great yarn.

    Larry and Roberta experienced some rough years.

    We hope that he is at peace now.


    George J. Mann and family

  5. Dear Roberta,
    I’m so sorry to learn of this tremendous loss to you and your family. May happy memories soon replace the grief you feel today. Love, Barbara

  6. God bless the Priesmeyer family. Larry was a wonderful man, and had great influence over multitudes of students beyond myself. Whether thru drafting class, woodshop, or his visits to Dallas. He will be missed.

  7. Roberta I pray you have peace and receive all the love you deserve in the time of grief. Larry will be missed by many. Please let Fred or I know if you need anything.

  8. Roberta and the Priesmeyer Family,
    My condolences to you as you deal with this loss.

    I loved working for and learning from Larry while I worked at the woodshop in the College of Architecture. He had a good humor about him (even when grumpy) and could spin a great story. Some of the most beneficial things I learned while at A&M were from watching him draft, detail, and put together materials (I never had him as a professor). Thank you Larry.

  9. Roberta, I’m so sorry for your loss. I hope your many happy memories with Larry help comfort you and help bring joy when you think of him. So many folks have you in their hearts during this time. I will keep you and your family in my prayers

  10. Hi Roberta
    I’m sorry to say that I lost track of you and Larry and just heard about his passing. You have our sincere sympathies. If you still have the house on Hondo and need help with it or anything else just let us know.
