He was born July 15, 1957 to Dale and Marge Sabart. Larry grew up working at the family business, Range Paint and Varnish. He took a few years off to pursue other interest, but found his way back home to Range Paint. In September of 1997, Larry married Ann. The couple made their home in Pike Township, where they raised their daughter, Katie.

Larry enjoyed gardening, working on vehicles, taking saunas, and just being outside. He also enjoyed spending time at his home away from home, his “toy box”, where he worked on his latest hobby, making bookcases and shelves.

Larry was tough and strong with his battle with many health issues, most recent, cancer, but now he is pain free.

He is survived by his wife, Ann; daughter, Katie Maki; step-children, Michael and Amanda Schug; granddaughter, whose smile always filled his heart with love, Hailey Adams; siblings, David Sabart, Kathy (Larry) Meyer, Thomas (On) Sabart, Linda (Kevin) Haney; in-laws, Bruce (Barbara) Maki and Carron Keenan; sister-in-law, Amy Martinich; and many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Dale and Marge and father-in-law, Harry Keenan.

    I am sorry to hear of this loss. Larry, Tom and I grew up together. Larry was a good guy and always fun to be around. He could be quite witty at times and make you laugh. He will be missed along with the business he so long represented. RIP my friend. God Bless the whole Sabart family.

  3. Thomas Sabart says:

    Larry you left us too soon but your pains are gone, your in your eternal sleep on earth and joining our father and mother as the first of their offspring to join them in heaven. Although the military kept me away for most of your life, we have always been true brothers and you are going to be missed by family friends and business customers

    I am so sorry Ann for the loss of Mushroom (Larry) He was such a nice guy I really enjoyed visiting with you folks and trying to obtain a taste for Mutton wrapped in bacon to this day I will not look at that food again. But it was fun trying. God Bless you and I hope your future will bring comfort.

    My husband and I were shocked to read of Larry’s death. While living elsewhere and traveling to our lake cabin on the Range, Larry was our “guiding light” during remodeling. He was a wealth of knowledge and always guided me in the right direction, even if I had some crazy idea in another direction! Though I may not see him for a year or more, he always greeted me with a smile and “Hi, Nanc”! I have recommended him and his services to many and he will be so sorely missed. Our sincere sympathies to his family and friends. May fond memories be of comfort and may he rest in the arms of our loving God.

  9. Tiffany and Appletree staff says:

    Katie and family,

    Your friends at Appletree wish you strength and peace during this difficult time. May the memories sustain you until you meet again.

  10. Nancy says:

    Larry was our “guiding light” when we began an extensive remodel of our cabin into a lake home while still living in the Cities. He was such a wealth of knowledge and often guided me away from some idea that would not work, always greeting me with a smile and, “Hi Nanc”, even if not seeing me for a year. His knowledge of paints and stains could be challenged by none. It always worked and was right for us!! I recommended his service to many.
    Our sincere sympathy to his family and friends at this time of loss. May fond memories of Larry sustain you and my he rest in the arms of our loving God.

  11. Jennie Winger says:

    Our deepest sympathies go out to Larry’s family and friends. He has been so helpful to my dad with stains for his woodworking the past several years. He was so knowledgable about paints, stains, and colors. It was so neat to stop in and chat while he mixed our paint colors. He will be missed.

  12. Antonio ( Tony ) Bertucci says:

    I’m really sorry to hear about your loss of Larry he was a good person and we New him well as I would go to Range paint and varnish with my Father in the early Sixties to sell Pittsburgh paints and varnish to them. My sympathies go to your family

  13. Diane Bainter says:

    Larry had a wealth of knowledge at Range Paint. He helped me on many occasions in choosing paint for our home.
    I am so sorry about your loss, Ann & family. RIP Larry
