David Lawrence (Larry) Greenwald passed away on Sept. 27, 2013 in Castle Rock, Colorado. He was born Nov. 23, 1951 to Marjorie (Sellers) Greenwald and David Greenwald.
He grew up and attended school in Alamosa, and graduated from East High School, Denver. He attended the University of Colorado, Boulder where he received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Accounting in 1973. He obtained his CPA license in 1975.
Larry had a passion and respect for business and was a creative CPA and entrepreneur. He was always intent on helping others with their business challenges. He loved the outdoors and camping, especially the San Luis Valley. He had a very keen mind, quick humor, and was a wise and astute counsel.
He was an avid history buff and knew a lot of “good stuff” including sci-fi, trivia, and things no one else would ever know. A conversation with Larry was always an experience and if he knew, and you didn’t, you would very soon.
He is predeceased by his maternal grandparents, Atha B. and Robert E. Sellers, pioneers of Alamosa, his paternal grandparents, Lena and Conrad Greenwald, pioneers of Windsor, his parents, Marjorie and David, and step-father, Ralph Tharp of Alamosa.
He is survived by and whose legacy will proudly continue in his beloved sons, Bradley David Greenwald of Denver, and Brian Lawrence Greenwald of Carbondale. Also his wife, Tatiana of Castle Rock and his former wife Connie of Denver. His sister Dee Greenwald Schranz and Mike Schranz of Denver and as “Uncle Arly” to Kristi and Eric, sister Vivian and Dave West, Kelly and David of North Carolina. He will be deeply missed by a host of other family and friends, especially his dear friend extraordinaire, Terry Thon.
