Larry Leo Nevins

April 22, 1957 ~ June 8, 2023 (age 66) 66 Years Old


Larry Leo Nevins, also known as “Inch” to his Yooper family and friends, age 66, passed away unexpectedly June 8th 2023 at his home in Green Bay WI.

Larry was a former resident of Ontonagon MI or “God’s Country” as he called it. Larry was born in White Pine MI to Lawrence Peter Nevins and Alma Miriam (Tikkanen) Nevins on April 22 1957.

Larry is survived by his wife Donna, his Daughter Jamie and his grandchildren, Kaleb and Isaac Wendler. Larry is also survived by his siblings Mark (Jeri) Nevins, Rita (Mike) Sirvio, Sharon Tousignant and Dorothy Maki. Also, numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and so many dear friends.

Larry was preceded in death by his father Lawrence, his mother Alma and his brother Dennis.

Larry worked as a welder at the shipyard in Ontonagon MI for several years. He also worked at the White Pine Copper mine. When Larry moved to Wisconsin, he began work at St. Mary’s Hospital and most recent, Bellin Hospital in Green Bay.

Larry was an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed hunting and fishing. He loved being in “God’s Country” fishing the best fishing holes, hoping to catch the next record walleye. He also enjoyed hunting, always trying to tag the next trophy buck. Larry always had the best (sometimes exaggerated) fishing and hunting stories to share.

He was also one of the Green Bay Packers biggest fans. “Go Pack Go!” as he would say. Larry’s infectious smile and laugh would light up a whole room. He has touched all of our lives in so many ways. Larry will be missed tremendously by all, but will NEVER be forgotten.

A memorial service for Larry will take place at the Cane Funeral Home in Ontonagon, MI on Saturday, July 29th at 3 pm. Friends may call at the funeral home 1 hour prior to the service.
