Obituary for Lawrence "Larry" Peter Kobeluch

August 8, 1947 - September 11, 2020
Volo, Illinois | Age 73

Loving Husband, Father, Pop-Pop/Papa, Brother & Friend


Lawrence Peter Kobeluch, age 73, of Volo, Illinois, formerly of Elmwood Park, Illinois, passed away peacefully, Friday morning September 11, 2020, at Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital in Barrington, surrounded by his loving family.

Larry was born August 8, 1947, in Chicago, the son of Peter and Gertrude (Pawlus) Kobeluch. On March 21, 1970, Larry married the love on his life, Lorraine, at St. Pascals Catholic Church in Chicago. This past March, they celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary.

Larry was a country boy at heart. He was always giving and caring. Family was important to Larry. He would stop everything to be there for his kids and never wanted to miss an event with his grandkids. Larry always had room in his heart to add others into his extended family. You never got a chance to shake Larry's hand because he was a hugger; his bear hugs were legendary and will be missed by many.

Larry is survived by his loving wife of 50 years, Lorraine (Ferrari) Kobeluch; children, Michelle (John) Czyz, and Brian (Lisa) Kobeluch; and grandchildren, Jacob, Amy, Olivia, Adam and Joshua. He is further survived by his sister, Lainee (Scott) McGraw; brother-in- law, Ron (Anna) Ferrari; sister- in- law Kathy (Tom) Lange; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Larry was preceded in death by his parents, Peter and Gertrude Kobeluch.
