Larry (Fred) Boeckman was born on April 17, 1954 to Duane and Madonna Boeckman of Breda Iowa. He was a graduate of St. Bernard High School in 1972. Larry was United in marriage to his high school sweetheart, Jeanne (Determan) Boeckman on October 18th 1974 and fathered 4 children who were his absolute pride and joy. Larry worked alongside his father in his feed business as well as a Hog buyer for Western Iowa Pork until their closing in 1985. In 1986, he was given the opportunity to work for Ray Lenz in the insurance industry.... an opportunity that changed his life! Fred was faithful to the business until his retirement in April 2020. His time at Lenz insurance allowed him to pursue his life long dream and build his own farm business which was a dream come true to him. In 1993 alongside his friends, they took a chance and pioneered the building of The Breda Golf Course. He will forever be a staple of the golf course and his beloved hometown of Breda Iowa. Fred died suddenly on Thursday July 30th doing what he loved more than life itself, golfing with his buddies. If you knew Fred, you know he rarely was not smiling and never missed the chance to engage in a conversation or miss a party. His shell was hard and he was tough as nails, however his soul was soft and his empathy toward others was second to none. His true love for his family was above all! May he find peace with his parents in heaven and his special uncle (Ott Boeckman). Larry served as a proud member of the Breda Volunteer Fire Department for 24 years. He was a parishioner and advocate of St. Bernard parish all of his living life. Larry was survived by his Wife Jeanne (Determan) Boeckman; Daughter Amy Brannan and special friend Richard Meiners, Christin Boeckman Banovic (Mark) Jeffrey Boeckman (Mandy) David Boeckman (Liz); grandchildren: Ella, Meredith, Walker, Charlie, Caleb, Cyler, and Cooper.
