Larry Dale Yarber

Larry Dale Yarber was born September 30, 1953, in Mountain View, Missouri to Ferrell and Zeletha (Russell) Yarber. The Lord called him home on August 22, 2021, at the age of 67.
He was united in marriage to Cheryl Ann Hard on May 25, 1974, in Florence, Alabama. To this union four children were born, Bonnie, Clint, April, and Derek.
Larry is survived by his wife, Cheryl; four children, Bonnie Yarber, Clint Yarber and wife, Melynni, Derek Yarber and wife, Vanessa, and April Grogan and husband, Anthony; four siblings, Bill Yarber and wife, Rhonda, Sue Joyner and husband, Tony, Carolyn Jenkins, and David Yarber and wife, June; as well as fifteen grandchildren, Taylor, Korbin, Makiya, Kayden, Kaylee, Shaylin, Josh, Leah, Abi, Ryan, Raegan, Koby, Kyler, Rowan, and Tyler.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Ferrell and Letha Yarber; and twin sisters, Georgia and Janet Yarber.
Larry loved to hunt, fish, golf, and garden, but his greatest blessings on this earth were his beloved wife, children, and grandchildren.  He dreamed of owning a farm, having a family, and preaching until he died, and he lived a full life and accomplished all of these goals. Even though he was employed as a postal carrier most of his life, his true calling and passion were preaching the word of God for 48 years.  He spent the last eleven at Curry Street in West Plains, MO, and twenty years as an OABS instructor trying to save as many souls as he could.  He was the best husband, father, friend, and papa anyone could have asked for.  We take comfort knowing he heard “welcome home my good and faithful servant,” but his absence here leaves a void that can never be filled.
Visitation was held Tuesday, August 24 from 6-8:00 p.m. at Curry Street Church of Christ in West Plains, Missouri, under the direction of Yarber Mortuary, Mountain View. The funeral will be a private service. A box and cards will be provided in the foyer for anyone who would like to leave a memory or a message for the family. Memorial contributions may be made to Online Academy of Biblical Studies (OABS) Chipman Road Church of Christ 201 NW Chipman Road PO Box 262 Lee’s Summit, MO 64063. Condolences may be expressed at
