On Sunday, December 20, 2020, Larry Caspall, age 71, of Macomb, Illinois, passed away at his home.
He was born on March 5, 1949, in Macomb, Illinois, to Ralph Caspall and Kathryn (Kelso) Weghorst.
Larry is survived by his children, Scott (Dana) Caspall of Evanston, Illinois, Janelle (Jordan) Wittland of Springfield, Illinois, and Megan (Brandon) Lands of Algonquin, Illinois; seven grandchildren, Olivia Caspall (19), Titus Lands (15), Evander Lands (14), Ava Guzman (10), Claire Wittland (8), Chase Guzman (6), and Miles Wittland (5); his brothers, Fred (Gloria) Caspall of Macomb, Illinois, Ken (Diane) Caspall of Columbia, Missouri, and Dan (Deborah) Caspall of Powhatan, Arkansas; several nieces, nephews, and cousins. Larry was preceded in death by both of his parents and his sister, Kay Koucky.
Larry graduated from Bardolph High School in 1967 where he played basketball and baseball. He was a farmer for over 50 years and he loved what he did, caring for and tending not only his land but the land of other families. Larry had several passions throughout his life, including snowmobiling, riding his motorcycles and ATVs, rock-climbing in his Jeep in Colorado and Utah, tending his horses, horseback riding with his brother and sister-in-law and local friends, and antique tractor pulling. Anyone who knew Larry knows he loved anything with a motor, power, and/or speed. Larry was a loving and devoted grandfather to his seven grandchildren and delighted in sharing his farm with them, including giving them rides in his tractors and saddling up horses for them to ride any and every time they asked. Larry also was a skilled hide and seek player, always finding clever spots to hide to the delight of his grandchildren. Above all, Larry held a sincere faith in God and was intentional to live through his beliefs.
Graveside services will be private at Pennington Point Cemetery west of Adair with Pastor Kelly Ingersoll officiating. A Celebration of Life will be held on Sat. May 22, 2021, at noon at the Caspall farm located at 17650 N 1000th Road, Macomb, Illinois 61455. All are invited.
