Larry L. Duesterbeck
1937 - 2021
Mr. Larry L. Duesterbeck Summerville - Larry L. Duesterbeck, 83, passed away February 18, 2021, at MUSC hospital. A great man, Larry was born on July 4th, 1937, in Walworth County, Wisconsin. Larry spent time serving in the United States Army before becoming an electrician at the Charleston Naval Shipyard until its closing. He would go on to start his own business as a self-employed electrician until his retirement. Larry was a selfless man who was always looking to help others in any way he could. With a strong love for animals Larry could often be found sitting out on his lawn feeding the ducks and geese with his tiny pride and joy poodle Annie. Remembered as a well-respected man who brought light to a normal conversation, and knowledge to an insightful one. We would like to thank his neighbors and friends of Oakbrook Commons. He is survived by his wife of 60 years Carnice Genny Duesterbeck; his children, Gina Puckhaber and Michael Duesterbeck; his grandchildren, Steven Puckhaber, Nicholas Puckhaber and Larry Puckhaber; his great-grandchild, Emma Puckhaber; his brother, Dewayne Duesterbeck; other relatives, and many friends. Predeceased by his son, Steven L. Duesterbeck. He will be forever missed, and always remembered as the strong, amazing, and caring person he was.

Jenny, I was so sorry to hear about Larry's passing. He was always so funny and kind to me. In case you are not familiar with my name, Helen Goldstein, is my sister who is your neighbor. I was the one who worked at Kohl's. God bless you always.

Larry always had a smile on. He was part of great memories from the shipyard. Both a coworker and friend. Condolences to his family.
