Larry Linhardt
July 27, 1949 - March 18, 2022
Sedona , Arizona - Larry R Linhardt, 72, of Sedona, AZ formerly of Kansas City Missouri passed away peacefully on March 18,2022 with his wife, Deborah at his side.
Larry was born in Kansas City, Mo to Roy A and Olivia K Linhardt. He graduated from Southwest High School. His many friends knew him as "Looney " for his fun and crazy personality. Larry loved art and had a unique eye to see things differently from most. Over the years he had many art shows and First Friday events in KC. After his stroke he continued his artwork even with his disability.
Larry loved to travel and he and Deborah were blessed to travel the world. Often times bringing home inspiration for his artwork.
Larry loved the Chiefs and Royals, cheering them on from Sedona and was glad that he was able to witness their World Series and Super Bowl wins.
Larry is survived by Deborah, his wife of 50 years; brother Ken Linhardt; sister-in-law and brother-in-law Teresa and Charles Bockting; nieces Amy and Sarah Bockting; great nephew Hunter Bockting; mother-in-law Jo Pritchard and many extended family and friends.
He will be missed more than words can express. He is probably already planning an art show in heaven.
Look around you and see art in everything!
A celebration of life will be held at a later date.

I remember Larry from Mr. Parker's drafting class. He was always a good friend.

Damn! "Looney" was one of the first people I met when I moved to K.C. in 1959. His brother, Kenny, is the same age as my brother and the four of us spent many days on 77th, just off Madison, at the Linhardt house since both Larry's parents worked. We didn't do anything we shouldn't have been doing though!

Looney was a good friend. We used to run around doing dumb things on the weekends. Rest In Peace my friend.
