August 28, 1939 – February 26, 2021
Lawrence Edward “Larry” Tadevich, 81, went home to be with the Lord on February 26, 2021.
Born August 28, 1939 in Downers Grove, IL, he was the son of the late William and Helen (Konkle) Tadevich. His brother, William Tadevich, also preceded him in death.
On January 21, 1961, Larry married the love of his life, Sandra Lee Krieger. She survives him. To their union, they were blessed with five children: Joyce (Scott) Newhall of San Antonio, TX, Julie (Greg) Cinal of North Liberty, IN, William “Bill” (Tuula) Tadevich of Chicago, IL, Robert “Bob” (Shannon) Tadevich of Granger, and Stephen (Jan) Tadevich of Osceola. Larry is also survived by one sister, Laura (George) Nies of St. Simon’s Island, GA, sixteen grandchildren and five great grandchildren.
Larry was a faithful follower of the Lord Jesus Christ. He has loved and served Him with joy throughout his life. He was a loving and devoted husband, father and grandfather. He was the godly, wise leader of our family. He was the perfect partner for Sandy. They enjoyed serving in the Sunday School class for the five-year-olds of their church, Northside Baptist, for 16 years. They both loved serving in Bible Study Fellowship. Larry was a Group Leader in the Elkhart Men’s class for the last 20 years. He loved giving men the opportunity to talk about God and how He was teaching them from His Word. Larry and Sandy founded Network Solutions, Inc. together in 1989. They always said it was God’s company to be used for His glory, to bless the families who worked with him. He loved to be where his kids and grandkids were joining them in what they were doing. Sporting events, choir concerts, dance recitals, and mission trips. He wouldn’t have missed any of it. He loved technology and learning new things never got old to him. He made us laugh. He encouraged us. He challenged us. He pointed us to Jesus as he lived humbly and selflessly. We are all honored to have been called his family and he will be missed every day.
