Larry was born on September 5, 1949 to Joe and Rosalyn (Thiel) Yarnall in Scottsbluff.  He attended school in Scottsbluff, graduating in 1968.  Larry attended Chadron State College and graduated with a teaching degree.

Larry married the love of his life, Diana Anthony, in August of 1969.

He taught school in Gering a few years before working for the railroad a short while.  He then returned to teaching and taught at Scottsbluff.  After many years of teaching and coaching, he once again gave that up and went to work for WNCC as the plant manager until his retirement.

He enjoyed fishing and golfing before health issues limited his ventures.
